Conditions Treated with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Use your own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to reduce pain and stimulate your body's ability to heal itself.
If you have acute pain due to injury, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood may help stimulate your body's amazing ability to heal itself, naturally. Platelets are types of cells within the blood that contain growth and healing factors. When concentrated and injected into the damaged area these platelets release the growth factors and stimulate the body to heal itself.
The proteins, cytokines and other growth factors in the PRP provide a number of ways to assist in the repairing of cell damage. They can decrease inflammation and improve cell growth.
With PRP there is both no risk of the immune system rejecting the therapy or any risk of disease transmission. This is because the PRP is derived from your own blood. There is also no prolonged recovery time. In general, most people return to their jobs or usual activities right after the procedure.
Don't let pain or injury stop you from living the life you love.
