PRP therapy in elite runner Kier’s knee cure his semi tendonitis and allow him to return to full training

I was at a level where I was running 8 times a week and clocking about 60+ miles a week. I was working my way in to the best possible athlete I could be. I had however been suffering from a recurring knee issue for about a year and in March 2018 I took the decision to get it sorted out completely so that when I started at the University of Birmingham in September I would be injury-free and ready to train.

I had my first course of PRP injections at the beginning of April and then after a follow-up consultation, I went for another set of PRP injections in May towards the end of my 12 weeks recovery. The first set of injections needed a full 12 weeks to recover from but after the second ones I was back running in 2 weeks. I wasn’t running flat out but jogging along pain-free.

I am very happy I took the decision to get my knee problem sorted out. It was tough to step back from sport but looking back now the PRP therapy have completely fixed me and I will hopefully be able to train and compete injury-free for years to come.
