PRP Therapy - promotes long lasting healing for a host of orthopedic issues, by using the regenerative power of your own body.
Although blood is mainly a liquid (called plasma), it also contains small solid components (red cells, white cells, and platelets.) Platelet-rich plasma contain many more platelets than what is normally found in the blood (typically 5 to 10 times greater, or richer than usual). Platelets are best known for their importance in clotting blood. However, they also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which play a crucial factor in the healing of wounds, soft tissue injuries, fractures, and pain relief. This rapidly emerging therapy is designed to deliver a highly concentrated solution of platelets (6-7x the normal concentration in a typical blood sample) via injection that can boost tissue recovery.
WHAT IS PLATELET-RICH PLASMA?
The body’s first response to a soft tissue injury is to deliver platelet cells. Filled with growth and healing factors, platelets initiate repair and attract the critical assistance of stem cells. PRP therapy accelerates this natural healing process by delivering a higher concentration of platelets to the injured area. This will jump-start and significantly strengthen the body’s healing. In addition to a rapid recovery time, many patients also report a decrease in pain and discomfort. Our goal is to eliminate the need for more aggressive surgeries by treating injured tissues before the damage progresses and the condition is irreversible.
HOW CAN IT HELP ME?
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
PRP therapy is a conservative, low-risk, non-invasive treatment. It can heal many orthopedic conditions like arthritis, tendon injuries, and ligament injuries anywhere in the body.
It can eliminate the need for more aggressive treatments such as long-term medication, and when compared to surgery, patients are far less vulnerable to the serious risks involved, such as infections and blood clots.
PRP therapy supports long-term healing of your injury, rather than quick, temporary relief from your symptoms.
The procedure can be completed in just a few hours. It offers a very quick turnaround time, with most people returning to their usual activities right away.
