Warriors center Andrew Bogut has been receiving injections in his surgically repaired left ankle while rehabilitating in Los Angeles, according to a Warriors official.
Bogut went to SoCal to continue his rehab under the supervision of Dr. Richard Ferkel, who performed arthroscopic surgery on Bogut’s ankle in April. While there, he has received several injections of Regenokine injections.
These treatments, designed to diminish swelling and assist in Bogut’s recovery, are a form of blood-manipulation therapy. It is usually used to treat joint pain, lower back pain and forms of arthritis. It works by taking blood from the patient, manipulating it to get a concentrated protein-heavy fluid, then injecting it into the problem area. Kobe Bryant and Alex Rodriguez have reportedly benefited from the procedure.
