Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a non-surgical treatment to resolve pain through healing the underlying cause of injury. Platelets from your blood will be removed through a simple blood draw and concentrated to be injected into the site of injury. Growth factors are a naturally occurring substance which are found in the plasma and tell the body to send more growth factors to stimulate the healing process.
The entire process takes less than 30 minutes. Depending on the severity of injury most patients require between 1-3 sets of PRP injections spaced 3-6 weeks apart. Response to treatment will depend on severity of condition and will vary with each patient. Conditions that could be treated with PRP injections include: osteoarthritis, rotator cuff injury, sprains or strains of ligaments or tendons, chronic knee problems and other conditions. We offer a consultation at no obligation to you to see what treatment is the best option.
