PRP injection for scar tissue?
« on: February 27, 2013, 03:10:44 PM »

My knee surgeon is suggesting a PRP injection for a lump i have in my knee after fat pad surgery. He says it is scar tissue and this injection will help break it down? I'm 23 and had the surgery last year but this lump is giving me constant problems when squatting.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks, Jason.

I was recommended to massage my scar tissue straight accross the scar with Bio Oil twice a day to break it down. I have been doing this for a few months and have noticed a difference. Not sure if you have tried massaging the area, but anything is worth a try.
