PRP therapy is based on the most advanced medical knowledge and techniques available. Professional athletes have been using the therapy for decades to heal injuries in a fraction of the time required for other methods. Because it’s non-surgical, the treatment reduces long recovery times that can easily ruin an athletic career.
The therapy has multiple applications, from easing chronic pain to healing an extensive array of soft tissue injuries, and aids in relieving inflammation that occurs as injured tissues break down. The therapy has been used by a wide variety of professional athletes in sports ranging from baseball and basketball to football.
PRP can be used as a stand-alone treatment or as an adjunct to surgery to speed healing and recovery. When used as a wound and injury treatment, it can be injected or sewn directly into torn or damaged tissues. It’s effective for addressing injuries of tendons and ligaments, arthritis and fractures, for skin grafts, to minimize surgical scars and in dental surgery.
How PRP Therapy Works
Your blood is comprised of multiple elements, one of which is platelets that contain at least 19 growth factors. Those growth factors can be separated from the blood in a concentrated form and reintroduced into the body to activate cellular regeneration. It’s a therapy that’s equally effective for men and women of all ages.
