Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is part of a regenerative protocol used to treat and repair injured tissue.
When your body is injured, it does its best to heal itself, but a lot of times it can only heal so well and then lays down scar tissue and stops trying, creating a chronic condition.
This leaves an injured area that only got fixed a little bit and normally gets worse over time.
The introduction of enriched plasma into a chronically injured area, allows your body to treat that area as a brand new injury, diverting all of its healing power to that area, but this time, your body has ALL of the building blocks needed from the enriched plasma to heal the injury at a much higher level.
With PRP therapy, your own blood is drawn and concentrated in a centrifuge.
The concentration isolates growth factors, which are the cells your body uses to repair itself.
These growth factors are injected into the area of concern, such as an injured tendon, where it can begin to stimulate the body’s natural healing process.
Due to the concentration of your blood, healing time can be drastically reduced.
Platelet Rich Plasma is generally used to treat soft tissue injuries, including tendonitis, rotator cuff injuries, Achilles tendon ruptures and more. PRP treatments can help reduce the need for anti-inflammatories and because the source of treatment is created from your own blood, side-effects are very limited.
PRP Therapy has been found to significantly enhance the healing process and improve function, reduce pain and provide long-lasting relief to a variety of injuries.
Patients have reported the following benefits:
Patients generally report improvements in 6-8 weeks, although some people feel the benefits right away. Additionally, others have reported continual improvement over time, from the the day of treatment up to 24 months post treatment.
