About Platelet Rich Plasma
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is an advanced treatment that has been used by physicians to help repair damaged or injured tissues in the body. It’s a minimally invasive procedure that helps initiate the regenerative process by utilizing the growth factors that platelets are known to contain.
PRP therapy has been found by physicians to greatly reduce healing time when it’s applied to the surface of an open wound. It was also found that PRP could be used in a number of medical specialties designed to trigger a healing response from our body. The benefits of PRP are now being applied towards the facilitating of healing muscle, tendons, ligaments, articular and meniscal injuries. You may have heard of PRP through various media sources discussing the treatment of professional athletes who have been injured.
Some of the pain conditions that can be treated with PRP include:
- Tennis Elbow
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Ligament tears
- Achilles tendinitis
- Joint pain
Please be sure to speak with a doctor before perusing PRP as there are some conditions that could make PRP unsuitable for you.
