My Wrists with Torn TFCC “Feel Fantastic” After PRP, Proclaims Diver
After contacting Dennis M. Lox, MD, an expert in Sports and Regenerative Medicine, a competitive collegiate diver elected to proceed with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to both of her wrists after tearing both Triangulo-Fibrocartilagineous Complexes. The TFCC tears failed to respond to conservative measures and she elected to proceed with PRP under the direction of Dr. Lox. The procedure to the wrists with torn TFCC was simple. Two weeks later, the diver proclaimed to Dr. Lox, “my wrists feel fantastic.”
PRP has been used for many sports injuries. The simplicity and the possibility of avoiding long surgical recoveries make this regenerative medicine procedure popular with athletes who sustain sports medicine injuries. It’s hard to beat feeling fantastic.
