Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Has anyone had Platelet Rich Plasma and Hyaluronic Acid Blend Injections?

@skimottaret, great news. I am also pleased to report that today, exactly one year on from beginning treatment, my knee condition is dramatically improved. I had top up PRP treatment when I finished the season, but in summary, 9 weeks skiing, no pain, no anti-inflammatories, no swelling. Immediately back to hill walking - just went out on a relatively easy 10 mile walk in the Dales last weekend, no issues. I am so grateful for the improvement. I could barely walk at the end of last season. Long may it continue for both of us, @skimottaret, ! Enjoy the summer.

@lynnecha, snowHead snowHead great to hear... I should note that I used anti inflammatories daily when skiing to manage swelling and I didn't get any VMO shutdowns or patella tracking problems which I used to have regularly ..

Ding Ding round two.... after a course of three PRP/HA injections last year (final one in Feb 19) my knees were starting to ache a bit again and my range of movement was getting restricted so I decided to get a second opinion and see a new Consultant to review my MRI's and provide a physical exam. Decided to see Mr. Bell and he gave my quite a comprehensive initial consult and recommended another series of PRP injections. He didnt feel the addition of HA added anything other than additional cost so we went with straight PRP last week. I have been working on improving my hamstrings flexibility but my quads and calves are quite stiff (argghh) and have ignored working on those and need some physio and stretching work...

Worth noting is that in their clinics pre injection advice they say to be well hydrated to assist with your veins being easier to find as well as improving the amount of PRP within the sample. I was away for the weekend and got home on a late flight and was dehydrated (like an idiot). They ended up having to take two blood samples to get enough PRP to do both knees. As per previous shots I found a good improvement within days and have two more scheduled in the coming months. If you are getting these done drink your water campers !

@skimottaret, must be that time of year. I had ‘top up’ PRP injections last Monday- both knees. Still vastly improved over pre-treatment state 18 months ago. Fingers crossed and long may it continue. Best of luck to you!
