Can PRP Help Stabilize My Hip More and Help Heal it Even More?

I am a 22 yr old soccer player and about a year ago I had a hip arthroscopy to repair a labral tear and I also had microfracture surgery in the same hip to repair a small cartilage legion. My question is can PRP help my stabilize my hip more and help heal it even more? I have been feeling about 85% better since the surgery and I take good care of my body. I was just wondering if PRP can give me and extra healing boost.

It may have been helpful to have been given during surgery. Post-operatively it may not be of much benefit depending on how far out you are from surgery and what the state of cartilage and labral healing is.

Yes, PRP injected into the right area of your hip can add many potent growth factors. These factors can boost healing and reduce pain.
