Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy or PRP is an innovative treatment of pain relief with long lasting results! PRP treatment naturally promotes the healing of muscle and skeletal conditions. This treatment technique is applied to patients with knee, hip, spine, and shoulder pain due to osteoarthritis. Additional conditions that benefit from PRP therapy include:

  • Rotator cuff tears

  • Chronic plantar fasciitis

  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury

  • Pelvis pain or instability

  • Back and neck injury

  • Tendonitis or tennis elbow

  • Sprains

The body’s natural response to injury is to generate platelets into the blood stream. Platelets are filled with regenerative elements which repair and attract the body’s stem cells. The natural process of PRP therapy provides the body with a high concentration of platelets to enhance healing.

Platelet Rich Plasma is created from a blood sample which is spun at high speeds to separate out platelets. These concentrated platelets are then injected into  and around the area of pain or injury. This localized injection strengthens the body’s natural healing abilities.

This procedure is done in our medical office without the need for hospitalization, surgery, or anesthesia. Most patients even return to their jobs and regular routine directly following treatment. Improvement of the treated area is seen within a few short weeks with increased improvement over the course of long-term healing.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is highly effective in the relief of pain with proven results seen in ultrasound and MRI images. PRP treatments can reduce the need for surgery and improve the healing of tissue before conditions worsen or become irreversible.
