Former-AEW Champion Kenny Omega was featured in an Instagram advertisement for LifeMed Institute on Tuesday. Omega is shown receiving Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections to help with the pain of recuperating from his various injuries
Omega has not wrestled since November 13th, 2021, when he lost the AEW World Championship to Hangman Page. Omega gave an update on his condition in February, where he said that he was not progressing as quickly as he’d originally hoped, but was clear that progress had only slowed, and not stalled completely
According to Johns Hopkins, the PRP injections are made of “platelet-rich plasma from a patient’s blood sample,” which is then injected into troubled areas, such as muscles, joints, and tendons, easing pain, and accelerating the healing process by increasing the concentration of bioproteins or hormones in the targeted area.
