Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy Q & A

What is PRP therapy?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentration of platelets suspended in plasma. Both platelets and plasma are components naturally in your blood. 

Platelet-rich plasma has the unique ability to stimulate your body’s healing process and accelerate the repair of damaged tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints. 

PRP therapy is the process of applying this substance to injured areas to not only relieve pain but restore your body to its normal function. 

What conditions can platelet-rich plasma therapy address?

PRP is a versatile therapy for a wide range of soft tissue injuries. At Regenerative Medical Group, the team uses PRP therapy to address a number of conditions, including:

  • Muscle injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Joint pain
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Tennis elbow
  • Patellar tendinitis
  • Hamstring strains
  • Joint injuries
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Plantar fasciitis

Soft tissue injuries that haven’t healed properly can lead to chronic pain and impair your physical abilities. PRP therapy works by increasing the number of platelets and growth factors your body needs to repair damaged tissue. 

Platelet-rich plasma therapy not only improves your body’s ability to heal itself but can also speed up the time it takes you to recover from soft tissue injuries. It has a number of additional applications, too, such as improving skin quality and improving hair growth. 

Is PRP therapy safe?

PRP therapy allows you to address soft-tissue injuries without the need for surgery or other invasive procedures. Because Regenerative Medical Group sources PRP from your blood, there is little risk of side effects or adverse reactions. 

PRP therapy also reduces the need for medications like anti-inflammatories and opioids. PRP therapy is a safe and effective way to boost your body’s healing process. 

How do I know if PRP therapy is right for me?

Platelet-rich plasma or PRP therapy is appropriate for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. If you suffer from chronic or persistent pain, PRP therapy might be the right therapy for you. 

At Regenerative Medical Group, the team works with you to evaluate your condition and determine the most effective solution.
