For years, Platelet Rich Plasma has benefitted thousands of people by helping them overcome injury without surgery and the lengthy recuperation time that follows. PRP can be a promising treatment option for virtually anyone suffering from pain due to injury or arthritis. Or, for those who have failed to heal with traditional treatments such as anti-inflammatory medications, steroid injections or surgery.
What is platelet rich plasma therapy?
PRP therapy is a type of regenerative medicine that repairs joints without surgery by isolating your body’s natural healing factors and delivering them right where you need them. We use a form of platelet rich plasma known as “Pure PRP,” due to its high concentration of platelets and the growth factors retrieved in the harvesting process.
The process works by taking a tube of your own blood, spinning it in a centrifuge and then injecting the activated platelets into your damaged tissue. Torn tendons, ligaments and muscles are just a few of the prevalent treatment areas which benefit from the healing properties of PRP. Clinical studies have shown that PRP has improved function and decreased pain to joints, muscles and connective tissue.
The specific range of conditions treated by platelet rich plasma therapy includes:
- Joint Damage
- Knee Injury
- Sports Injury
- Disc Herniation
- Rotator Cuff
- Achilles Tendon
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Tennis Elbow
- Shoulder Injury
- Tendon/Ligament Tear
PRP therapy has also shown great improvement in patients suffering from osteoarthritis.
