Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injection therapy is a revolutionary procedure that uses components of the body’s own blood cells to stimulate the natural healing process in certain orthopaedic conditions.
The body’s first response to any soft tissue injury (ligaments and tendons) is to deliver platelet cells. Filled with healing and growth factors, platelets jump-start the repair process and attract the essential aid of stem cells. PRP injections use a natural healing process that accelerates the body’s efforts by delivering a higher concentration of platelets. They provide effective pain relief and faster healing, and a PRP injection can eliminate the need for surgery and prolonged recovery.
PRP injections show promising results with osteoarthritis of the knee, shoulder, hip, and spine, as well as rotator cuff tears, chronic plantar fasciitis, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries, tennis elbow, ankle sprains, tendonitis (medically referred to as tendinitis), and ligament sprains.
