Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection

Platelet Rich Plasma also known as PRP is the treatment that uses your own body’s natural healing factors to regenerate and repair your joints, ligaments, and tendons.

What is a Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection?

Your blood is drawn and processed in a special syringe and centrifuge to isolate your growth factors and other healing chemical messengers. The PRP is then injected into the treatment site, under real-time imaging to ensure correct placement. This targets the problem area with a boost of your own body’s isolated natural healing factors.
