Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy is the perfect treatment for individuals who endure and suffer from tendon injury, osteoarthritis, and other arthritic based conditions.
PRP Therapy utilizes platelets from your own blood to rebuild a damaged portion of your body. The therapy treatments themselves have been successful in not only relieving pain, but also in accelerating your body’s healing process.
How does treatment work?
Your PRP Therapy treatment is performed, non-surgically, in our exam rooms and takes less than one hour! To break it down, your blood is drawn and placed in a centrifuge for 15 minutes so as to separate out the platelets. Then, the platelet-rich plasma is injected into the damaged portion of the tendon or cartilage with the assistance of an ultrasound machine.
How many treatments will I need?
Since this is a cosmetic procedure, we recommend spacing 2-3 treatments out over the course of 1-2 months. This helps to achieve the best treatment outcome possible.
What kind of down time will I experience?
Our patients have incredible success with PRP Therapy treatments and bounce back to after 48 hours. Results begin to show 3-4 weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve over time.
