How does PRP Therapy work?


The procedure of platelet-rich plasma treatment (PRP) is fairly simple. PRP is collected by first drawing a patient’s blood. That blood is spun down to separate the red blood cells from the plasma. The platelet-rich layer of that plasma is then extracted, concentrated, and re-injected into the patient’s damaged tissue. The influx of that platelet-rich plasma then triggers a natural healing response by the body. The platelets, when activated, release adhesive glycoproteins and other various growth factors, which enhance healing on a cellular level.

 
 

Am I a good candidate for PRP therapy?

PRP therapy is a breakthrough treatment that has helped a number of people stay active and achieve profound relief from osteoarthritis, tendon injuries, chronic pain, acute athletic injuries and a number of other conditions.

 

How it can PRP help you?

Research studies and clinical practice have shown PRP therapy to be effective at relieving pain. Both ultrasound and MRI images have shown definitive tissue repair after PRP therapy, confirming the healing process.

PRP Therapy is successfully used in orthopedics, sports medicine, wound healing, PRP therapy’s natural healing process intensifies the body’s efforts by delivering a higher concentration of platelets. Treating sports injuries with PRP therapy is a popular and effective application of this procedure. This treatment uniformly reduces recovery time from injury and overuse.
