Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet-rich plasma therapy can help if you suffer from conditions like back pain, neck pain, degenerative disc disease, and sciatica. Permanent healing is possible with this natural and non-surgical injection. We offer cutting-edge regenerative PRP treatments to clients in and around Columbus, Ohio.
PRP therapy uses a concentration of your blood platelets in a small volume of plasma. We create the PRP injection from a sample of your blood, which is then spun to separate all of the components in your blood. Platelets release essential growth factors that restore and heal damaged cells and tissues. So, PRP therapy not only decreases your pain but also heals and regenerates damaged body tissue in joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
PRP therapy is also beneficial for treating body conditions such as plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff tears, and sports injuries that cause muscle swelling, pain, tendonitis, sprains, and more. During your appointment, we will draw a sample of your blood and place it in a medical device to separate and concentrate platelets and plasma. Concentrated platelets are then combined with a portion of the plasma, and this mixture is injected into your damaged joints, discs, and more.
Platelet-rich plasma injections contain several growth factors that work to restore the injured area and relieve pain. Platelet-rich plasma therapy mimics the normal healing process that happens after you sustain an injury but at an accelerated rate. Concentrated platelet-rich plasma jump-starts your body’s natural repair process.
PRP works by platelets and other components necessary for healing and restoration directly to the site of your injury. Growth factors stimulate the growth of new cells and increase collagen deposits. We use PRP treatment to enhance your body’s natural ability to self-heal and to shorten recovery time from acute and chronic soft tissue injuries.
