The FDA IS Going After Arthritic Patients and Their Docs?

Word is out that the FDA is formulating regulations to prohibit or restrict the use of Platelet Rich Plasma, which is spun down from a sample of your own blood and then injected into your unstable joints.  To me this is an outrageous intrusion into the patient/doctor relationship.  However, I have found by talking to many of my colleagues that simple prolotherapy using dextrose and lidocaine works just as well and is safer and cheaper than PRP.  We use prolotherapy all the time with excellent results for most patients.
