Platelet Rich Plasma
Are you suffering from a painful condition and have trouble finding a solution with conventional medicine? Our platelet rich plasma treatments may be just what you need.
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a regenerative medicine treatment made from a sample of your own blood that is an alternative to more invasive treatments or risky medication, focusing on the root cause of the pain rather than the outward symptoms.

How Does PRP Therapy Utilize Your Own Body's Natural Mechanisms for Long-Term Relief?
When you experience pain from a degenerative condition or injury, that pain is just a symptom of the real issue that is taking place under the surface. The key to the success of platelet-rich plasma is that it works in partnership with your body’s own natural healing mechanisms to resolve the underlying cause of the pain. It’s only when the cause is addressed and fixed that you’ll experience long-term relief.
Have you ever used pain medication for your condition? If so, you know the relief is only temporary and must be repeated every time the medication’s effect wears off. With PRP therapy, the cause is treated so the pain has no more reason to exist.
The process of platelet-rich plasma therapy is drug-free, non-surgical, and straightforward:
- A small sample of your blood is drawn in our office
- The blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and red blood cells
- New platelets have become concentrated and contain healing properties
- The platelets are injected into your damaged or degraded tissue to help facilitate the healing process
- Minimally invasive with little to no downtime after treatment
- PRP therapy is made from your own blood, so there is virtually no chance of rejection
PRP can also be used for aesthetic treatments, like the PRP facial. We offer this treatment at our clinic, and it has been shown to reduce fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance.
