PRP therapy is a type of regenerative medicine that can help patients with pain and injuries. PRP uses a person's own blood to help heal and repair a problem in the body. This is a great treatment option for athletes and those dealing with chronic pain because it can spead up healing times and avoids surgery. However many of our patients have used PRP to feel better and heal, safely.

The process for PRP entails having your own blood drawn, just two vials. The blood is seperated with a machine. We use the plasma which is concentrated with platelets, proteins and groth factors that help promote a great healing environment. This is then injected right at the source of pain or injury in your own body.
