Many naturopathic practitioners and orthopedic professionals have used PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy to help their patients repair joints and soft tissues like ligaments, tendons, and muscles. If you are interested in discovering if PRP is a good option for your unique situation, Dr. Dubroff at Holistic Solutions is here to help.
How Does PRP Work?
PRP utilizes plasma, which is the liquid component found in the blood. The plasma has platelets developed to a much higher concentration than what you would have in normal human plasma. The patient’s blood is taken, crafted into the plasma for injection, and introduced to the diseased or damaged tissues to help stimulate repair. While platelets are known for helping to form clots to stop bleeding, they are also loaded with growth factor proteins that can promote healing and boost the growth of healthy new cells.
Disorders or Injuries That Could Benefit from PRP
With the rapid healing potential of PRP, practitioners today have been using it for conditions and injuries such as:
- Quad or hamstring strain
- Achilles tendon iddues
- Inflammation or conditions of the elbow
- Age-related degeneration and inflammation in the joints
- Rotator cuff injuries or tears
- Patellar tendon issues like inflammation or rupture
- DeQuervain’s Tenosynovitis
When you make an appointment at Holistic Solutions, Dr. Dubroff will perform an examination and pinpoint your problem. PRP is an in-office treatment that can sometimes help patients eliminate the need for surgery due to healing and cell regrowth. Additionally, there is little to no recovery time after PRP injection therapy.
Many pro athletes and fitness buffs are using PRP to heal and regenerate after injury. This is a safe, effective, and minimally invasive way to trigger healing and helps patients to get on the mend.
