What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is super-physiologically concentrated platelets and growth factors that stimulate healing and regeneration of injured tissues. PRP is derived from your own body, and is 100% natural. PRP injections are an increasingly popular alternative to surgery because of the great results patients of all ages are obtaining. Whether you are an elite athlete or a “Weekend Warrior,” regenerative therapies, including PRP, are an effective and safe nonsurgical therapy to treat forms of acute and chronic pain.
Where does platelet rich plasma (PRP) come from?
To harvest PRP, a small sample of your blood is drawn into a specialized collecting system. This blood is centrifuged at high speeds to isolate the growth factors and platelets. Because your own blood is used, there is no risk of a transmissible infection, and a low risk of allergic reaction.
What should I expect from PRP treatment?
PRP is a safe, non-surgical procedure that stimulates healing and treats acute and chronic pain. Although recovery times can vary, patients generally begin to see improvement in pain and mobility within 4 to 6 weeks. Improvement will continue for up to 6 months and can last up to a year. The cost of a PRP treatment varies based on your specific treatment needs.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
PRP’s natural healing process intensifies the body’s efforts by delivering a higher concentration of platelets and regenerative growth factors directly into the area in need.
Platelet rich plasma is a very simple and safe nonsurgical procedure that is performed by a qualified physician. It’s easy as 1, 2, 3!
A small sample of your blood is drawn and collected into a special device
The special device is then centrifuged at a high speed, two separate times, to isolate the purest PRP.
Once the PRP has been isolated, it is ready to be injected into your affected site. It is carefully injected using refined techniques to ensure advanced healing and regeneration.
