Manchester United’s Paul Pogba sidelined by hamstring injury

Written by Jing Yan on . Posted in Blog / News

Manchester United breezed past Basel in the Champions League with a 3-0 win on 12 Sep but suffered a huge setback as Paul Pogba sustained a hamstring injury.

The midfielder limped off the field after 19 minutes into the game and is likely to be out of action for 6-12 weeks because of the injury.

A hamstring tear is a relatively common injury seen in footballers and runners (sprinters). A lot of times such muscle injury respond well to simple, nonsurgical treatments.

For athletes who want to shorten their recovery period and have a quicker return to sports, the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injection procedure is a viable option.

Although platelets are best known for their importance in clotting blood, they also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are very important in the healing of injuries.

PRP is plasma which contains more platelets than normally found in blood. Therefore, the concentration of growth factors can be 5 to 10 times higher than usual.

The PRP preparation is then injected into an athlete’s area of injury to promote healing.

From our experience, the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injection procedure has helped many of our athlete patients shorten their healing time by half.

All in all, we have treated runners, triathletes, MMA fighters, soccer players, cyclists and many from other disciplines with much success.
