Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is a process that enhances your body’s natural healing ability. PRP is a great solution for athletes and active adults who experience chronic pain, usually tendon injuries or osteoarthritis.
In PRP therapy, a patient’s blood is drawn, separated and re-injected into injured joints, ligaments and muscles, encouraging platelets to release special growth factors that lead to tissue healing and repair. PRP is prepared from your own blood and causes no concern for rejection or disease transmission. The process takes about 1 Hour.
Pain relief typically starts within two to four weeks and continues to improve over three to six months.
- Results are proving PRP to be an effective and natural alternative to steroid injections.
- PRP may eliminate the need for more aggressive treatments such as long-term medication or Surgery.
- In difficult cases, PRP may be used in conjunction with Prolozone for better results.
