PRP Joint Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints.
A skilled technician, will draw the your own blood (similar to a lab test) and then place it in a sterile centrifuge, which spins the blood at high speeds. This process separates your own platelets from the other blood components.
The platelets are then concentrated, resuspended and re-injected into the arthritic joint or injured area by our PRP certified practitioner. Once inside the tissue, the platelets release substances known as growth factors, which lead to initiation of the natural tissue healing process.
