Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry has been out of the lineup since injuring his knee when he slipped on a wet spot during Game 4 of Golden State’s first-round series against Houston. But the reigning league MVP is hoping he will be back in action soon thanks to an experimental treatment called platelet-rich plasma therapy.
According to a recent story from Wired, platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) is the process of taking growth factors from a patient’s own blood and concentrating them before injecting them back into the body. The hope is that these concentrated growth factors will accelerate healing. Curry told reporters Tuesday that he received the treatment on the second day after his injury.
