PRP Therapy


Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is a biological, holistic way to help treat pain and boost your body’s natural regenerative abilities. It can be used as a stand-alone treatment, as a post-injury or post-surgery option, or in combination with other therapies.

How PRP works
To obtain platelet rich plasma, one or more vials of your blood are drawn and then centrifuged to concentrate platelets in the plasma. The concentrated plasma is injected into the site needing healing or pain relief.

PRP benefits
Treatment for trauma to tissue caused by injury or surgery
Pain management without the risks of oral medications
Completely natural and bioidentical treatment

Who is a good candidate for PRP?
Candidates for PRP include patients who are currently suffering with pain that has been difficult to manage with traditional treatment. PRP is particularly indicated for joint pain and surgical site pain, as it promotes healing and can add powerful growth factors to the site of the injury.

What to expect from PRP
Your PRP injection typically should start providing relief from pain within a few days, and the effects can last weeks or even months. Some patients may need several injections to achieve the full benefits of PRP.
