Television chef Simon Rimmer, star of Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, has revealed how he has recently benefited from platelet-rich plasma treatment, after being told 5 years ago he would never run again.
After suffering what he first thought was a minor sports injury, he later discovered he had torn his knee cartilage. Minor cartilage injuries may get better over time, but more serious knee injuries may need surgery to trim away the tear. Simon discovered he required surgery, and subsequently also had to wear a knee brace for 8 weeks. After being told he would not run again, he signed up for a course of physiotherapy, which can help to prevent further joint damage.
