Using a patient’s own blood cells and components, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a leading-edge procedure in regenerative medicine. PRP therapy acts to ignite or advance the natural healing process for a number of orthopedic conditions.
When a soft-tissue injury occurs, that is, an injury to the muscles, ligaments, tendons, or cartilage, your body responds by sending platelet cells through the blood. Platelets have a multitude of healing and growth factors, and they work to start the body’s repair process and soon bring stem cells to the area.
PRP therapy works by helping this natural healing process through injecting a high concentration of platelet cells directly into the injured area. This can lead to effective pain and some inflammation relief as well as faster overall healing. It can be used as a means to circumvent the need for surgery, or it can be used in conjunction with surgery to shorten the recovery process.
PRP therapy is used to aid in injuries and conditions, such as:
• Ankle sprains
• Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries
• Arthritis of the knee, shoulder, hip, and spine
• Ligament sprains
• Plantar fasciitis
• Rotator cuff tears
• Tendonitis (or tendinitis)
• Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)
