What is PRP therapy?
For PRP therapy, a sample of your blood is drawn and the platelet-rich plasma is separated out and placed in a syringe. The PRP is then injected into the injured area. The proteins in the PRP promote healing.
What conditions are treated with PRP therapy?
PRP therapy is a nonsurgical solution to healing injuries in joints, tendons, and other soft tissues. PRP has also shown promise in helping speed up the recovery process after a fracture.
It’s an effective therapy for numerous other musculoskeletal issues, including:
- Acute and chronic tendon injuries
- Muscle and ligament injuries
- Degenerative joint disease (osteoarthritis)
- Chronic and acute back pain due to injury or degenerative processes
What are the advantages of PRP therapy?
Rather than masking pain, PRP therapy enhances your body’s own natural processes to repair damaged tissue. PRP therapy resolves the underlying condition rather than just treating the symptoms.
As a natural remedy with medically-proven effectiveness, PRP therapy coincides perfectly with the integrative medicine approach of treating your medical concerns with your body’s own restorative processes whenever possible.
