Plymouth Argyle trio get special injections to speed up their recoveries from injury – Plymouth Live

Ryan Lowe has revealed that three of Plymouth Argyles injured players have had PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injections.

The Pilgrims boss says it will speed up the recoveries of midfielder Jose Baxter, as well as strikers Byron Moore and Dom Telford.

PRP is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein derived from whole blood which is centrifuged to remove red blood cells.

Lowe had the injections when he was a player and they are becoming increasingly common in not just football, but others ports too.

He said: I had them every other week. It speeds the recovery up. When you have got a bit of soft tissue injury, whats probably reoccurred, it helps it heal.

If you get the needle and the blood flow right into where it is, it helps it heal. Your blood helps heal the tears the muscle injuries.

So thats what they have had. I have insisted they had that because its a big help in recovery from any muscle injury.

The trio will all miss the match at Mansfield Town on Saturday but could return to training next week.

Baxter has had a calf problem while Moore and Telford have picked up hamstring injuries, although none of them are as bad as first feared.

Lowe said: If it was a cup final tomorrow, them three players would be playing trust me, but its not, so thats why they are not.

In terms of helping them to recover the best they can, its certainly worth it.
