    Votto Continuing Treatment

    With the other thread locked down, I figured I would post this update here.

    For those interested in Votto's recovery,

    Joey Votto has had a second platelet-rich plasma injection, Reds manager Bryan Price said, but his prognosis hasn't changed -- his return to the field is still a giant question mark.

    "This isn't going to be a simple recovery that we can put a timeline on," Price said. "He had a second PRP injection here a couple of days ago and a couple of recovery days from that and back on his rehab schedule. I don't think there's anything imminent. I think we're going to have to let a few more weeks go by before we can see if there's a point in time that we can see he's coming back. It's not day-to-day right now by any means."

    We'll see if this thread can stay on track a little bit better.

    What is this, some sort of actual update?

    And I'm starting to think Votto is not coming back this season. Phillips is ahead of schedule, from what the said during the game tonight. They really have to find a replacement for Votto, then.

    Have they tried gamma rays yet? A little Hulk smash would really help right now.

    A co-worker of mine has had that platelet injection and he said it's not a lot of fun.

    This injury continues to sound nothing like a quad strain. It sounds more like the team is covering up a major knee surgery. I would not be surprised to hear this off season that Joey requires micro fracture surgery and will be out all of 2015 . Then it would be official that he would never be the same.

    What would be the reason for the coverup?

    How much research have you done on quad injuries? I'd like a written report by the end of the weekend.

    You should change your username, maybe
    Grete Samsa might be more apt

    why? I donīt get how so many users think this has nothing to do with his quad and that he isnīt doing "well" while still missing lots of time..

    Iīm not a doc and I have no idea how long someone is out with a quad strain => I googled it and pretty quick I found out that most times those strains arenīt severe and only take 10 days, some ice and rest and thatīs it. but there are more severe strains that lasts up to 6 weeks. really severe strains lasts 3 months + and it requires medical treatment..

    => it isnīt that unrealistic that he misses the rest of the season while still healing better than expected. Those timeframes are obviously not for great athletes (should take a bit less time) but even if they are healty in 75% of the expected time they are not mlb ready. they have to grow the muscles back up, taking grounders, batting practice etc..
