Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

If you’ve suffered from an injury involving your tendons, ligaments, muscles, joints, or other musculoskeletal areas, ask Dr. Brown about Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections.

 

PRP is created by drawing your blood, using a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets in your blood, and then injecting the newly concentrated Platelet-Rich Plasma into the injured area.

 

How it works:

 

Platelets are blood cells that allow your body to form clots. Plasma is the portion of your blood that carries enzymes, nutrients, and other healing properties to the parts of your body that need them. Together, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) has the potential of speeding and enhance your body’s natural healing process by using your own blood to improve recovery.

 

Studies have shown PRP injections to aid in the healing process of rotator cuff tears, Achilles tendon ruptures, tennis elbow, and more.

 

PRP injections are FDA cleared and have a very low risk of side effects because they use your own blood to improve the healing process.

 

Call Dr. Brown to find out if PRP Injections are right for you.
