Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma—or PRP—contains a high concentration of protein-packed platelets, which are the body’s way of promoting its own healing from within by stimulating new cell growth in damaged tissue, cartilage, ligaments, muscle, and bone. In PRP therapy performed by specialists here at Peak Medical, your own plasma is used to repair any damage you may have, alleviate its associated pain and inflammation, and prevent further degeneration in the affected area. Some common conditions that can improve with regenerative PRP therapy are:
- ACL and meniscal injuries
- Ligament and muscle injuries
- Osteoarthritis and rotator cuff injuries
- Tendinitis and tendinosis
Further, PRP has proven to help speed up the healing process, particularly in older patients, whose bodies tend to recuperate at slower rate than those of younger patients.
PRP therapy is a popular option for people who are not interested in prescription medications. If you would like to find out if PRP treatment is a solution for you, please be sure to contact us.
Note: PRP therapy has also proven to be an effective regenerative treatment for visible signs of aging and promoting new hair growth. Contact us if you would like advice on whether PRP therapy, or one of our other cosmetic treatment services, is the right choice for you.SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION
