PRP Injection Therapy

PRP is a therapy that uses a patient’s own blood to collect a concentration of platelets—the essential components of healing—to target an injured area.

Platelets are clotting cells that are rich in the growth factors that coax reparative cells to proliferate and compose connective tissue. When the body is injured, plasma and white blood cells are sent directly to the area. However, when an injury is old and hasn’t healed properly, this process may need to be triggered to induce a therapeutic effect. In this sense, PRP harnesses the body’s natural healing process to address several common complaints, including:

  • Joint pain
  • Injured tendons
  • Torn ligaments
  • Tendinosis of the ankle
  • Sports Injuries
  • Hamstring strains/tears
  • Bicep tendon tears
  • Tennis elbow
  • Ankle sprains
  • Etc.

To ensure the maximum possible results of PRP therapy, we have partnered with Harvest® Technologies to utilize their Platelet Concentrate System, which consistently delivers the highest yield of platelets compared alongside competing systems.

PRP can be a good intervention if multiple therapies have failed, including:

  • Physical therapy
  • Steroid injections
  • Inefficacy of or sensitivity to NSAIDs

You may not be a suitable candidate if you have any of the following:

  • Active infections, metastatic disease, or certain skin diseases
  • Are on anticoagulants or associated therapies
  • Anemia
  • Pregnancy
  • Blood disorders/abnormal bleeding
