During the past several years, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has become an increasingly popular treatment option for injuries. Many famous athletes — Tiger Woods, Rafael Nadal, and several others — have received PRP for various problems, such as sprained knees and chronic tendon injuries. 

Until now, PRP treatments have been self pay. TRICARE now covers PRP injections when you have been diagnosed with: mild to moderate chronic osteoarthritis of the knee, or lateral epicondylitis, also known as "tennis elbow". 

What is Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP)?
Although blood is mainly a liquid (called plasma), it also contains small solid components (red cells, white cells, and platelets.) 
PRP is plasma with many more platelets than what is typically found in blood. The concentration of platelets — and, thereby, the concentration of growth factors — can be 5 to 10 times greater (or richer) than usual.
