Victims of car crashes often suffer knee injuries from hitting the front lower dashboard. Automobile accidents can also produce tendon injuries from the shoulder belt in a sudden impact. Insurance settlements recognize the need for victims to seek reasonable care in a timely manner follow a crash. Therefore newer treatments should be considered by accident victims with ongoing knee and or tendon pain which fails to recover with normal care and physical therapy.
This new treatment is called PRP (platelet-rich plasma) which is an out patient injection normally performed by an orthopedic or pain management specialist. A local anesthetic is first applied so the treatment is generally not painful. Favorable results have been reported with sports stars Tiger Woods and Rafael Nadal in treatment of their injuries.
