Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) comes from a patient’s blood. PRP is a concentrated source of growth factors and cellular signaling factors that play a significant role in the biology of healing.
PRP now plays a key role in accelerated return to play and function for many professional athletes. PRP treatment has received significant attention from the media and has been used by many NFL players and elite professional athletes from other sports such as basketball, golf, and tennis.
PRP is now rapidly gaining acceptance as a premier healing treatment option in many advanced medical centers for folks suffering from non-sports-related conditions such as osteoarthritis.
PRP’s power comes from its incredible versatility. Its regenerative powers can be used to heal a variety of issues such as arthritis of the spine, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, ankles, and feet. It is also one of the best alternatives to surgical treatments of tendon or ligament tears including tears of the rotator cuff, tennis elbow, and Achilles tendons
PRP treats multiple degenerative conditions. It provides important growth factors for repair of all joints, ligaments, and tendons.
Our PRP treatment technique allows for accurate ultrasound guidance placement of PRP not only in the joint space but just as importantly into the surrounding ligaments and capsule of the joint. Without treatment of these stabilizing structures, the benefits of PRP injection in the joint are limited as the main issue of joint instability is not addressed.
PRP safety has been studied on thousands of patients in Europe, the US, and Asia with no complications reported.
Our ultrasound-guided technique ensures accurate needle placement that essentially guarantees the safety and efficacy of the treatment.
