What is PRP Therapy?
When you are injured, your body automatically signals for help and calls your platelets, white blood cells, red blood cells and other components withing your body to travel to the site of injury. Once there, these cells communicate with each other to release specific growth factors that initiate a healing process.
When used at the site of injury, the growth factors and other components in platelet rich plasma (PRP) have been clinically shown to potentially accelerate healing of injured or poorly healed tissue, thereby improving function and decreasing pain in patients of all ages and activity levels without surgery.
PRP Therapy aids in the healing process and helps decrease pain and inflammation, for conditions such as:
Chronic pain Tendonitis
Osteoarthritis Stiffness ACL tears
Rotator Cuff Tears Tennis Elbow
Plantar Fasciitis Strains and Sprains
PRP injections are done in our office, which will take about 35 minutes. Blood is drawn from the arm, and then placed into a centrifuge, which separated the platelets and other beneficial growth factors. The PRP is then injected into the desired site.
