Treatment of Direct Head of the Rectus Femoris Injury with PRP Therapy in a Division I Basketball Player

Matthew Quinn, BS, Nicholas Lemme, MD, Phillip Salko, MD and Ramin R. Tabaddor, MD

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: August 22, 2019

The Rectus Femoris (RF) is the most commonly injured quadriceps muscle and is second only to the hamstring in prevalence amongst lower extremity injuries occurring in athletes. For most high-level athletes, injuries involving these anatomical structures takes an average of 38 days for return to sport. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), is an orthobiologic that is commonly used in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries. PRP acts as a catalyst in the healing process by using the patient's own blood to provide supraphysiologic levels of growth factors and cytokines directly to the site of injury....
