Platelet Rich Plasma
Regenerative Medicine with Platelet Rich Plasma
When you are injured, your body automatically signals for help and calls your platelets, white blood cells, red blood cells and other components within your blood to travel to the site of injury. Once there, these cells communicate with each other to release specific growth factors that initiate a healing process.
When used at the site of injury, the growth factors and other components in platelet rich plasma (PRP) have been clinically shown to potentially accelerate healing of injured or poorly healed tissue, thereby improving function and decreasing pain.
Your PRP injection will contain a physiologic balance of platelets, growth factors and white blood cells tailored specifically for your problem.
During your PRP treatment, your blood will be drawn and placed in the PEAK Platelet Rich Plasma System where your platelets will be concentrated and isolated from other blood components. Your doctor may apply an anesthetic and use specialized instruments to deliver your very own high-concentrated PRP at the site of injury to boost your body‘s natural ability.
PRP has been clinically shown to potentially accelerate healing of injured tissue, thereby improving function and decreasing pain. Common uses are osteoarthritis, acute muscle tears, and tendonitis.
