Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections Platelets are a specialized type of blood cell involved in injury healing. Platelets also contain large reservoirs of natural growth factors. Platelet-rich plasma therapy uses a dose of concentrated platelets from the patient’s own blood to help them heal faster. Used to treat orthopedic injuries that aren’t responding to traditional methods, platelet-rich plasma therapy is a series of safe injections, ranging from one to four, that often has injury sufferers feeling better within weeks and performing their daily activities within months of beginning therapy.
Platelet-rich plasma injections can be effective in treating: • High repetition muscular injuries, as well as acute muscle tears and strains • Knee tendonitis and tendon injuries, including the Achilles tendon • Injuries and sprains to the ligaments, such as the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)
• Tennis and golfer’s elbow • Partial rotator cuff tear • Plantar fasciitis
At Advanced Wellness, our experienced clinicians will help determine if you are a candidate for Platelet-Rich Plasma injections.
