What is PRP therapy?
PRP stands for Platelet-Rich-Plasma. It’s a specific type of plasma found in your blood. PRP has more platelets than are typically found in blood. These platelets contain certain proteins that help injuries heal faster. Platelets are responsible for releasing proteins known as growth factors, which aid in the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
During the platelet rich plasma injection procedure, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and inserted in a centrifuge, which spins and forms a high concentration of platelets. The platelet rich blood is then injected back into the patient’s problematic site.
What are the benefits of PRP therapy?
PRP helps reduce pain and increase function. Research suggests that this procedure has been successful because it essentially uses the body’s own healing method to treat tendon and ligament problems. Our physicians apply this to many joints and tendons of the body including the shoulder, hip, knee and ankle. Researchers are still studying this promising treatment to determine other potential benefits.
Being at the cutting edge of the latest research is one of the many advantages of selecting EmergeOrtho as your provider. Success is contingent upon physicians that ensure the latest techniques are applied effectively. You can be confident that EmergeOrtho’s specialists are current in the promising new technique of PRP therapy.
