Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be used to stimulate the natural healing process to treat a variety of painful conditions. Platelet-rich plasma is an advanced technique which involves isolating platelets from the patient’s own blood to produce a potent plasma-platelet mixture which can initiate the healing cascade. Platelet-rich plasma can promote soft tissue recoveries from tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints. Because platelet-rich plasma primarily involves using autologous (the patient’s own) blood as treatment, it is a natural and safe alternative to more invasive surgeries. By precisely guiding the platelet-rich plasma to the injured tissue using advanced imaging techniques, we can provide effective minimally invasive treatment.
How it helps
A PRP procedure relieves pain by enhancing and promoting the healing of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions.
