What is PRP Therapy?
(PRP) Plasma Rich Protein
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is an innovative, all-natural treatment option for tendon injuries and joint pain.
One of the most exciting advancements in regenerative medicine is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. The PRP is given by injection, which allows the reintroduction of the body’s own stem cells and growth factors. PRP has the ability to regenerate damaged and injured tissues.
Understanding How PRP Therapy Works
Everyone’s blood is composed of the same key components: red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma and platelets. Platelets are the essential component that PRP therapy relies on to potentially heal chronic injuries and relieve pain.
Platelets are an incredible army of cells that circulate in your blood. They are primarily recognized for controlling bleeding. However, they also release over 1500 growth factors and proteins that facilitate wound healing and tissue repair. Platelet-rich plasma therapy works by isolating and concentrating the platelets within your own blood and selectively injecting them into injured areas, triggering your body’s natural healing process and thereby reducing inflammation and pain.
We continue to vigorously study PRP while collaborating with other field-leading colleagues to determine optimal preparations and applications. We have now learned that joints, tendons, muscles, and nerves each require specific and unique PRP formulations for best results, which are routinely incorporated into our treatments.
Is PRP Therapy Right For you?
PRP therapy is a breakthrough treatment that has helped many of our patients stay active and achieve profound relief from osteoarthritis, tendon injuries, chronic pain, acute athletic injuries and a number of other conditions.
To be considered an ideal candidate, your injury or condition should be of a mild to moderate level. If it’s very severe or advanced, you may require a stronger and more comprehensive treatment approach incorporating bone marrow stem cell therapy.
