PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) TREATMENT

PRP is cutting edge technology:

In recent years, rapid developments have been made in the use of growth factors for accelerated healing of injuries. PRP therapy offers a solution to accelerate the healing of these injuries naturally without subjecting the patient to significant risk. PRP treatment merges cutting edge technology with the body's natural ability to heal itself.

How does it work:

Using your own blood that is drawn from you, specially prepared platelets are taken and then re-injected back into the affected area of pain. These platelets release your own body's growth factors lead to tissue and joint healing. By concentrating these platelets, we increase your own growth factors which promote the healing of the damaged tissue or joint. The human body has a remarkable ability to heal itself and by re-injecting concentrated platelets we are supporting your own body's healing process.

Is PRP therapy right for me? What conditions can be treated with PRP therapy:

  • Acute and chronic tendinitis, tendonopathy, ligament injury
  • Muscle sprains
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Arthritis in joints
  • Chronic pain areas
  • Tennis/Golfers elbow
  • Promotes hair growth for male/women pattern baldness
  • Facial aesthetics/skin care
  • You should consider PRP therapy if you have tendonitis, ligamentitis, bursitis or osteoarthritis; and whereby conservative treatment such as anti-inflammatories, physical therapy and bracing have not provided symptomatic relief. For most patients, PRP offers a solid alternative treatment for those who do not wish to have surgery.
