Platelet Rich Plasma therapy

Platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP) is an outpatient office-based technique to treat tendon and ligament injuries as well as some joint abnormalities. PRP uses the patient's own blood components to stimulate a healing response in damaged tissues.

When an injury happens to a tissue, our bodies naturally recruit platelets from the blood to initiate a healing response. Platelets carry growth factors which are then released in response to signals sent from the injured tissue. Now, we are able to concentrate platelets from your blood. We then inject the platelets into the exact areas that are injured. Once the highly concentrated (4-12 times normal) platelets are injected, the growth factors are released simulating the same normal healing response in a much more powerful form.

By enhancing the body's natural healing capacity, the PRP treatment may lead to a more rapid response.
