PRP Therapy (Platelet Rich Plasma) or Prolotherapy

What Is PRP Therapy? 

Platelet-rich plasma therapy, also known as Prolotherapy is a regenerative medicine technique that uses the body's own blood cells to activate and intensify the natural healing process and speed up repair to the injured area.

How Does Prolotherapy Work?

These blood cells stimulate the body to produce more growth factors that are vital to the healing process. These growth factors enable tissues to regenerate and repair themselves. It is similar to planting a seed in the ground alone versus planting a seed in fertilizer; the seed will grow are better with the proper nutrients. PRP therapy provided these nutrients to help your body heal better.

Regenerative Medicine: Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) 

PRP treatment will include retrieving a specimen of your own blood that is spun in a centrifuge to create a platelet-rich solution. This platelet-rich plasma is injected back into the patient at the site of injury or pain. Stem cells that are harvested from bone marrow or fat tissue instead of blood can be used to treat damage in cartilage, bone, and certain other types of skeletal tissue.

PRP Therapy Expected Outcomes

Improved healing.
