Healing and tissue growth after an injury due to a disease such as arthritis involves proteins called Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) which are found in your blood. These proteins are instrumental in the healing process because they release growth, bioactive healing factors, as well as decrease inflammation. PRP injection therapy is a concentration of these healing platelets and growth factors from your own blood. We obtain a small amount of your blood in the clinic, then this sample goes through an isolation process that separates and concentrates the beneficial growth/healing factors. The process takes less than 30 minutes, and is completed in a single clinic visit.
This completely biologic process uses your body’s own natural properties to heal your injury. Because this treatment is 100% natural and obtained directly from you, side effects are very uncommon. Results may vary, but science and studies have shown us improved healing and cell growth with PRP therapy.
