Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections consist of a cocktail of many proteins that collectively stimulate repair and regeneration. Your own platelets will release multiple growth factors that help recruit your natural healing response to help enhance tissue regeneration and heal the damaged tendon, ligament and muscle. The concentration of platelets is normally 5 to 9 times greater to heal your body naturally.
PRP is commonly used to treat the
- Osteoarthritis of the knee, shoulder, hip & spine
- Rotator cuff tears
- Chronic plantar fasciitis
- ACL injuries
- Back & neck injuries
- Tendonitis such as Tennis Elbow
- Achilles tendon problems
- Bakc and neck injuries
- Ligament Sprains
- Relief from acute and chronic pain
- Accelerate healing of injured tissue and joints
- Stimulates the clearance of unhealthy tissue and natural healing processes
PRP Treatment presents patients with a long lasting, permanent solution that will not wear off over time as with a traditional injection. For this reason, PRP could help patients avoid joint replacement surgery and potentially back surgery. Like any treatment option, The effectiveness would depend on the severity of the condition or injury. Many traditional treatment options are more focused on relieving the pain rather than fixing the problem, as we like to call these treatments “Band-aid Treatments”.
Platelet-Rich Plasma is a simply and painlessly created with the convenience of it done in the office. The entire process only takes approximately 25-30 minutes from drawing the blood to solution preparation. Just like a routine blood draw, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient. Once the blood is drawn, it is then placed into a centrifuge where the blood is spun down using high speeds in order for it to separate the blood into red blood cells and concentrated platelets. Once the blood is separated, the red blood cells are then discarded leaving us with the concentrated platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and is ready to be used in the treatment process.
