PRP

Platelet rich plasma is an autologous blood plasma that is enriched with platelets. Plasma refers to the liquid component of blood; it is the medium for red and white blood cells and other material traveling in the bloodstream. Plasma is mostly water but also includes proteins, nutrients, glucose, and antibodies, among other components. Platelets are a normal component of blood. Platelets alone do not have any restorative or healing properties; rather, they secrete substances called growth factors and other proteins that regulate cell division, stimulate tissue regeneration, and promote healing.

How does PRP work?

PRP stimulates the body’s innate healing cascade. When we experience a soft tissue injury, our body responds by delivering a rush of platelets. When these platelets are activated, they release several types of growth factors, proteins, and cytokines that play a fundamental role in cell regeneration and tissue healing.

What conditions does PRP help treat?

  • Mild to moderate OA (Knee, hip, shoulder, ankle)
  • Tendinopathies – rotator cuff, epicondylitis, patellar tendon, Achilles tendon, peroneal
  • ACL/MCL sprains
  • Plantar Fasciitis
