Platelet Rich Plasma
What is PRP treatment? PRP, also known as platelet-rich plasma, consists of concentrated platelets and growth factors that stimulate healing and regeneration of painful, degenerating, or injured muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other tissues. The treatment is created using your own blood and is a non-invasive alternative to risky surgery or pain medication. When you visit our clinic, we will design an all-natural treatment protocol that gets to the root cause of your pain and doesn’t just mask the symptoms, so you can finally find relief and get on with your life.
Platelet-rich plasma injections are all-natural and derived from your body. To prepare PRP injections, a small sample of your blood is drawn and placed into a specialized medical device, which spins the blood at high speeds to isolate platelets from other blood cells.
PRP injections are a safe, non-surgical alternative for the treatment of acute and chronic pain, and it’s gaining popularity in South Florida. PRP is rich in growth factors and therapeutic bioactive proteins that stimulate your body’s natural healing abilities.
Once concentrated, platelets are reconstituted with your blood plasma and introduced into the areas where your body requires healing. When injected, regenerative growth factors immediately go to work to help you heal and get rid of chronic pain and discomfort.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma is a simple and safe non-surgical procedure that is performed at our South Florida regenerative medicine practice as an outpatient procedure. This means that there is little downtime with PRP injections, and you can typically resume normal activities after the treatments. Because PRP therapy uses your blood, there is a low risk of infection or allergic reaction following injections.
PRP treatment not only relieves pain but also jumpstarts your body’s natural healing capabilities to rejuvenate tissues and tackle the underlying conditions causing your pain. If you have pain due to degeneration or an injury, you are probably dealing with limited mobility due to inflamed, swollen, painful joints or other tissues.
Many people find that traditional treatments like rest, ice, and anti-inflammatory medications offer only short-term relief.
