PRP is a revolutionary treatment that taps into your body’s own natural healing power. Made from a sample of your own blood, PRP is a concentrated source of the proteins and growth factors that reduce inflammation to heal injured or diseased tissue quickly.
Professional athletes have been using PRP to treat sports injuries for faster recovery and improved function for years. Orthopedic surgeons also use cutting-edge treatment to promote healing after surgery, or as an alternative to surgery.
To create the PRP, your provider at Reid Physicians Group draws a sample of blood from your arm, then takes that sample and spins it in a centrifuge to separate the solid proteins and growth factors from the liquid portion of your blood. The concentrated blood product is then used for treatment.
When injected into your inflamed joint or injured tissue, the high concentration of proteins and growth factors can enhance the healing process and promote the generation of new, healthier tissue. PRP injections also reduce inflammation to decrease your pain and discomfort.
Researchers have only just begun to tap into the potential possibilities of this revolutionary treatment.
