Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is showing exciting results with sports injuries, including ligament sprains, tendon tears and chronic inflammation. This new non-surgical treatment can relieve pain, promote permanent healing and avert the need for surgery. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), is revolutionizing the way we treat acute and chronic pain.

First used in cardiac surgery in 1987, physicians discovered that platelets had strong healing properties. They began experimenting with skin and bone grafts, further exploring the soft tissue and bone regeneration effects. Today, Orthomolecular Nutrition & Wellness is using PRP and achieving outstanding results on:

  • Achilles Tendon
  • Hip and Spine
  • Rotator Cuff tears
  • Chronic plantar fasciitis
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injuries
  • Ankle Sprains
  • Tendonitis
  • Ligament Sprains-Knee (Medial Meniscus)

Regenerating Tissue Therapy

Research studies and clinical practice have shown PRP to be very effective. Both ultrasound and MRI images have shown definitive tissue repair after treatment, confirming the healing process. The need for surgery can also be reduced by treating injured tissues before the damage progresses and the condition is irreversible.

Activating the body's own healing process

The human body has a natural ability to heal itself. The body's first response to soft tissue injury is to deliver platelet cells. Packed with growth and healing factors, platelets initiate the repair process and attract the critical assistance of stem cells. Using this natural mechanism, PRP intensifies the body's efforts by delivering a higher concentration of platelets.

To create PRP, a small sample of the patient's blood is drawn (similar to a lab test sample), transferred to a unique multi-chamber container and then placed in a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins the blood at high speeds, separating the platelets from the other components. The concentrated platelet rich plasma is then injected into and around the point of injury, jumpstarting and significantly strengthening the body's natural healing ability.

Is PRP Therapy Safe and do the effects last?

Patients treated with PRP have shown significant improvement in their pain and ability to function. Because your own blood is used, there is no risk of a transmissible infection. PRP is performed in a sterile, office-based environment, and does not require general anesthesia or hospitalization. Because PRP helps to resolve pain through healing, it provides lasting results. Initial improvement may be seen within a few weeks, gradually increasing as the healing progresses.
