Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection Therapy is a safe, non-surgical procedure. It offers relief and healing to people suffering from chronic pain/arthritis, and athletes or active individuals, who endure pain from overuse or a past injury.

Platelets are crucial when it comes to repairing injuries. Platelet cells contain special healing proteins called growth factors that initiate repair of injury and can dramatically enhance tissue recovery. PRP therapy mimics the body's natural healing process by delivering a high concentration of platelets to the damaged tissue.

It's safe / natural since PRP uses your own cells, there is no risk of an immune response.

Less invasive than surgery - by allowing the healing process to occur more naturally we create a better chance of achieving true regeneration.

 

Regeneration is the process of healing and renewal, something the human body does naturally. We are in a constant state of regeneration, replacing old cells with new ones.

When the body is injured, a specific cascade of events occurs to heal the injury and restore us back to our healthy state. The manner in which the body recognizes injury, intervenes, and restores health is understood now more than ever.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments are attempts to harness that healing potential.

The closer a PRP treatment can mimic the body's natural healing process, the more regenerative the treatment will be.

Research demonstrates the regenerative potential and clinical benefit of PRP. We allow the healing process to occur more naturally, and the more chance we have of achieving true regeneration.

It is important to note that not all PRP preparation systems or treatments are the same. These differences play a critical role in determining the clinical outcome. We use industry leading PRP systems to deliver the best results possible.
