PRP Supportive Therapy
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) comes from a patient’s own blood. PRP is a concentrated source of growth factors and cellular signaling factors that play a significant role in the biology of healing.
PRP now plays a key role in accelerated return to play and function for many professional athletes. PRP treatment has received significant attention from the media and has been used by many NFL players and elite professional athletes from other sports such as basketball, golf, and tennis.
PRP is now rapidly gaining acceptance as a premier healing treatment option in many advanced medical centers for folks suffering from non-sports related conditions such as osteoarthritis.
PRP’s power comes from its incredible versatility. Its regenerative powers can be used to heal a variety of issues such as arthritis of spine, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, ankles, and feet. It is also one of the best alternatives to surgical treatments of tendon or ligament tears to include tears of rotator cuff, tennis elbow, and achilles tendons.
PRP treats multiple degenerative conditions. It provides important growth factors for repair and is used for repair of all joints, ligaments, and tendons.
WHAT TO KNOW
BEFORE YOU GO
Our PRP treatment technique allows for accurate ultrasound guidance placement of PRP not only in the joint space but just as importantly into the surrounding ligaments and capsule of the joint. Without treatment of these stabilizing structures, benefits of PRP injection in the joint is limited as the main issue of joint instability is not addressed.
How Are We Different?:
- The use of the latest PRP technology that derives the highest concentration of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) from less blood taken from a patient. Higher potency means better and faster healing!
- Unlike many orthopedic clinics that use a single intra-articular injection technique, our osteopathic approach offers injections of all essential tendon and ligament joint stabilizing structures inside and outside the inured joint.
- A combination of Prolotherapy, PRP, and tissue repair peptides BPC and TB4 establishes maximum coverage of the injured region for no extra cost.
