Heat Chris Bosh used PRP Injections from HGH Doc

Not just about Bosh, very interesting article.

Quote:
While many of Galea's U.S. athlete clients have been NFL players (reportedly including Washington Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss), Bosh—a new member of the Heat's all-star trinity—went for what two sources close to Galea said were PRP injections last year when a left-hamstring injury caused him to miss Toronto Raptors training camp. Through his agent, Bosh said Galea's treatment helped him return in time for the season.

Here's what PRP Injections stand for. I've never heard of it before.

Quote:
In basic terms, PRP involves the application of concentrated platelets, which release growth factors to stimulate recovery in non-healing injuries. PRP causes a mass influx of growth factors, such as platelet-derived growth factor, transforming growth factor and others, which exert their effects of fibroblasts causing proliferation and thereby accelerating the regeneration of injured tissues. Specifically PRP enhances the fibroblastic events involved in tissue healing including chemotaxis, proliferation of cells, proteosynthesis, reparation, extra-cellular matrix deposition, and the remodeling of tissues. Bottom line here is that PRP helps the healing process.

I wonder if Stern suspends him for the first few games of the season. Didn't he do that to Rashard Lewis last year for the Magic for an over-the-counter drug that was performance enhancing or something? I didn't pay to much attention to it then.

If that's the case, we'll be in for some trouble against Boston but you can't rule out Dwyane Wade and LeBron James, especially with our supporting cast. Besides, I believe Delonte West is suspended on gun charges and Kendrick Perkins will be missing a lot of the season anyway. Hopefully we sign Dampier soon to have a more formidable Front Line for Shaq, JO, Baby and KG.

By the sounds of the article, there is nothing that would lend itself to any suspendible offense. It's just a medical procedure, that has nothing to do with HGH.

Isn't PRP a form of growth hormone? Or am i reading that wrong?

I don't see where there's any connection at all. PRP involves blood plasma rich in platelets, which is the part of blood that forms scabs and heals tissue. Nothing hormonal at all.

Yeah. Kinda over my head, but since it helps one heal faster and i read that it includes an influx or growth factors....to me that sounds like some kind of doping.

No. Blood doping is when you store your blood, concentrate the red cells, freeze it and then transfuse it at a later date (you can also use a compatible donor). ONce transfused, the body has more red cells and helps performance in endurance sports.

this was the key part of your research, which you seem to be looking past -

accelerating the regeneration of injured tissues

it's a treatment for injury, not to prevent injury or aid in performance

Who cares.
They should just legalize all of it. Steroids will not enhance skill.
I wanna see some crazy roid freaks out there on the court.

They already are legal,the nba just picks a random skinny dude like rashard lewis every few years to make an example of so it seems like the league is strict on performance enhancers. In realilty this is a business looking for the best product with players looking to make as much money as they can with any advantages they can get. I would bet that some of the best and most competitive players in the league are using HGH to say the least, that is if theyre truely competitive

and i think i've said this before here, i'll use HGH without hesitation. Feel free to stick that syringe in my ass any time, think you only need it once every few months
