Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is an advanced regenerative therapy that uses your own blood components to help rebuild damaged tissues. The plasma concentrate rich in platelets and growth factors taken from your own blood is injected into the affected tissues or joint spaces in order to promote natural healing processes that aid in repair and regeneration of these damaged tissues. This procedure can be carried out in the familiar and comfortable environment of your doctor’s clinic.
PRP therapy can be used to treat common conditions or injuries such as
- Ligament sprains affecting the wrist or hand
- Cartilage defects, rotator cuff tendonitis and early arthritis of the shoulder
- Tennis elbow or Golfer’s elbow
- Tendonitis, cartilage defects, ligament injuries and early arthritis of the knee
- Achilles tendonitis, ligament sprains and plantar fasciitis of the foot and ankle
PRP promotes rapid regeneration, accelerating healing of connective tissues such as tendons and ligaments. It can be safely used to treat these soft tissue injuries at various sites throughout the body. Since there are no chemicals or medical drugs involved, the procedure can also be safely repeated multiple times with little to very low risk. When combined with appropriate supportive treatments such as physiotherapy and occupational therapy, PRP can provide significant long-term improvement in symptoms.
