Active lives can often lead to the pain of damaged ligaments and tendons. And the long-time treatments—medication, injections, physical therapy—only provide limited relief. At the Arthritis Treatment Center, we have powerful new options for you.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a fast-evolving treatment that can trigger a natural and lasting repair of injured ligaments and tendons. That’s due to the tremendous amount of growth and healing factors present in the alpha granules of platelets.
The procedure itself is brief and relatively painless. We obtain a blood sample from the patient and use a centrifuge to separate viable living platelets from the other whole blood components. Then, using precise ultrasound guidance, we inject the platelets into the injured area. Our expertise with PRP is reflected in our results: we have helped scores of people with chronic tendonitis, bursitis, and fasciitis to recover and to regain mobility.
