Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is a game-changing area of medicine with the potential to fully heal damaged tissues and organs, offering solutions and hope for people who have conditions that today are beyond repair. Of course, it isn’t new — the first bone marrow and solid-organ transplants were done decades ago. But advances in developmental and cell biology, metabolics, and other fields have unlocked new opportunities to refine existing regenerative therapies to develop new ones.
Our Three Interrelated Approaches:
1. Rejuvenation. Rejuvenation means boosting the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
2. Regeneration. Regeneration involves delivering specific types of cells or cell products to injured or diseased tissues, where they will ultimately restore tissue function.
3. Functional Restoration. Functional restoration involves multiple disciplines who work together (medical providers, physiotherapists, massage therapists, and chiropractors) in a coordinated fashion. Their focus is on maximizing function returning to pre-injury productivity (with sufficient functional capacity to avoid recurrent injuries) while preventing needless disability, unnecessary medical and surgical care, and healthcare-related complications.
Understanding Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is one of the most effective treatments today that help regenerate tendon injuries, ligament damage, and osteoarthritis. This procedure is non-invasive and harnesses your body’s natural healing potential. Our qualified and experienced physician first extracts a sample of your blood. The blood sample is then processed and spun by a modern centrifuge to separate the serum portion of the blood from the blood platelets, which contains the healing and growth factors necessary for tissue regeneration within the body. The growth factors are collagen (key building blocks for joints and connective tissue, growth factors (messenger RNA), amino acids (proteins), carbohydrates (for metabolism), electrolytes, and enzymes. The resulting solution, rich in growth factors, is then injected directly into the affected area. The rich solution then attracts your body’s stem cells to the area to accelerate the healing process.
Benefits of Platelet PRP
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is one of the safest and most advanced approaches to treating a wide variety of injuries and diseases within the human body. Patients recovering from injuries with PRP are more likely to exhibit greater mobility and experience less pain than the lengthy and exhaustive period of post-surgical rehabilitation.

Disclaimer: All reasonable efforts will be made to determine if you are a good candidate for Platelet Rich Plasma therapy before the treatment is initiated. Many factors determine the amount of regeneration or repair an individual will experience. Receiving a PRP injection cannot guarantee a specific amount of regeneration or repair, and results will vary for each individual.
