|I am a 22 yr old soccer player and about a year ago I had a hip arthroscopy to repair a labral tear and I also had microfracture surgery in the same hip to repair a small cartilage legion. My question is can PRP help my stabilize my hip more and help heal it even more? I have been feeling about 85% better since the surgery and I take good care of my body. I was just wondering if PRP can give me and extra healing boost.
|It may have been helpful to have been given during surgery. Post-operatively it may not be of much benefit depending on how far out you are from surgery and what the state of cartilage and labral healing is.
|Yes, PRP injected into the right area of your hip can add many potent growth factors. These factors can boost healing and reduce pain.
