WHAT IS PLATELET RICH PLASMA?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) offers a long lasting solution for sports injuries by utilizing the body’s natural healing process. PRP is a hyper-concentration of platelets as well as healing/growth factors from your own blood that can be injected into damaged ligaments, tendons and joints to promote tissue repair and accelerate soft tissue healing. Consequently, by utilizing platelets rich in growth and healing factors, you can get back to a pain-free life.
What Conditions are Treated with PRP? Is It Effective?
Chronic Tendon Injuries – According to research studies, PRP is most effective in the treatment of chronic tendon injuries, especially tennis elbow. This is a very common injury of the tendons on the outside of the elbow. The use of PRP for other chronic tendon injuries is promising. Therefore, PRP is a great treatment for Chronic Achilles tendonitis or inflammation of the patellar tendon at the knee (jumper’s knee).
Acute Ligament and Muscle Injuries – Much of the publicity PRP therapy has received has been about the treatment of acute sports injuries, such as ligament and muscle injuries. Furthermore, PRP is used to treat common sports injuries among professional athletes such as pulled hamstring muscles in the thigh and knee sprains.
