from Wayne Scanlan of Senators Extra,
If it’s good enough for Kobe Bryant and Tiger Woods, it’s good enough for Milan Michalek.
Like the NBA and golfing stars named above, the Ottawa Senators winger visited Germany for unique treatment of his chronic knee problem. On Tuesday, while meeting media prior to the NHL draft this weekend, Senators general manager Bryan Murray merely said Michalek was in Germany to receive “an injection,” treatment that some 30 NBA players, including Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers, have received.
The L.A. Times reported the Bryant treatment, in 2011, as “platelet-rich plasma therapy,” in which the platelets of a patient’s blood are isolated and then injected into the injured area to accelerate healing. Like Michalek, Bryant had been through previous knee surgeries and had numerous bone chips in the knee.
