What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy?
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy has been clinically proven to treat pain and encourage healing in the body. This procedure injects a high dose of platelets, concentrated from your own blood, directly into damaged or diseased tissue. These platelets have the ability to stimulate the body’s normal healing process with the ultimate goal of this technology being to restore the damage and achieve the highest level of function possible.
Disclaimer: Bone marrow cell therapy is a promising approach for a number of orthopedic conditions, but it’s not for everyone. Patients with a history of lymphoma or leukemia, certain blood diseases, and multiple medical issues are often not candidates. During your initial consultation, our medical team will review your medical history and injuries with you to help you determine if you’re an ideal candidate.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is concentrated from blood and then used to speed up the body’s natural healing process of musculoskeletal problems. PRP injections are prepared by taking the patient’s own blood and concentrating platelets to stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells. A number of disc diseases, nerve inflammation, and damage to the sacroiliac joints have seen improvement with PRP therapy.
