What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?
PRP is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets. As a concentrated source of autologous platelets, PRP contains (and releases through degranulation) several different growth factors and other cytokines that stimulate healing of bone and soft tissue.
Validated by Numerous Studies.
A very well-documented study at Caring Medical and rehabilitation, Oak Park, Illinois, shows people with MRI-documented meniscal tears who with PRP, returned to activity and athletic sports much faster than surgical treatment.
800% Faster Healing. Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), one of 4 found in PRP, is proven to increase cell proliferation by as much as 800%.
Cycling VS Walking. The difference is like finishing a marathon by cycling instead of walking. MRI-documented cases of PRP-assisted healing shows record recovery time.
Natural Healing Cascade. PRP treatments are 100% natural. They use your own blood platelets to accelerate your healing. It is an example of harnessing your own innate ability to heal. There are no side effects to be worried about. PRP can be applied multiple times- there is no limit. Most people will see significant results in four to eight weeks.
Some frequently treated conditions are the following: Osteoarthritis, chronic plantar fasciitis, ACL injuries, back and neck injuries, tendonitis, ligament sprains, tennis elbow, ankle sprains, and meniscus tears.
