There are plenty of treatments available for injuries involving ligaments, tendons, joints, and other soft tissue damages, but quite possibly the best option is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy. You may have heard some buzz about this treatment in recent years, as multiple famous athletes – Tiger Woods, Rafael Nadal, Kobe Bryant, and many others – have received PRP Therapy for various health problems, such as sprained knees and chronic tendon injuries.
This emerging biotechnology has continued to extend its reach into multiple areas of medicine since the early 1990’s. PRP Therapy has become a notable addition to the fields of orthopedics, and rehabilitative and restorative medicine.
But, what exactly is PRP Therapy?
Platelet Rich Plasma is blood plasma that has been collected from the patient’s body and enriched with concentrated platelets infused with a cocktail of bioactive proteins and human growth hormones. Once the fluid is prepared, it is mixed with local anesthetic and injected into the afflicted area. The entire process of the injection is always monitored under ultrasound guidance by a radiologist.
PRP Therapy is commonly used as a conservative treatment to enhance rehabilitative efforts, manage pain, accelerate healing and regeneration of healthy tissue. At Colorado Regenerative Health, we have had continued success with this treatment option; patients with arthritis, spinal issues, and neck injuries have all benefited greatly from this treatment. Without a doubt, PRP Therapy could be the right option for you.
