Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is made from your own blood platelets — the portion of your blood that’s highest in growth factors, or proteins. Blood platelets help your blood clot when you have a cut and they are important in helping your body heal from other types of injuries, such as pulled muscles or fractured bones. PRP can also help promote healing for a chronic condition.
The process to create PRP is a fairly simple procedure in which your doctor first draws a small amount of blood from your arm. The blood then gets processed in a centrifuge where high-speed spinning separates the platelets from other blood components, so they are concentrated within the plasma. This platelet-rich plasma can be injected into an injured area of your body to promote healing.
PRP therapy is ideal for healing sports injuries and other musculoskeletal conditions like tennis elbow or Achilles tendinitis. It can also help speed up the healing process for conditions such as:
PRP therapy is a minimally invasive treatment solution to many of these common issues associated with being an athlete, or as part of the aging process. And, since the PRP comes from your own blood, it’s a low-risk, all-natural procedure.
PRP therapy can help increase your performance in sports by allowing you to recover faster after an injury, so you can get back in the game. Your doctor typically pairs PRP therapy with physical therapy as part of your individualized treatment plan. PRP therapy can significantly reduce your pain and help you resume activities after just a couple treatments.
Your integrative health care team at Total Health Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Center works together to create a rehabilitation plan that best meets your needs and goals. The results of PRP therapy are typically long-lasting, too, because they allow the area of your body to heal properly, rather than temporarily masking the pain.
If you’ve suffered an injury or you have a chronic condition that hasn’t improved from other treatment methods, PRP therapy may be an ideal solution. Call Total Health Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Center to schedule or use the online booking system.
