PRP is an effective regenerative medicine treatment for ligament injuries, tendonitis, soft tissue injuries and arthritis. Those interested should call (623) 335-0448.
Platelet rich plasma treatment has been used for in areas in medicine such as urology, wound care ophthalmology and cardiovascular medicine for quite a while. However, it was only recently that PRP has begun to be used for relieving musculoskeletal pain.
Studies are showing promise that it relieves pain from soft tissue inflammation problems like golfer's and tennis elbow, and it is working well for treating ligament injuries and tendonitis. Three professional sports leagues - the NBA, NFL and MLB - approve of PRP, and several professional athletes have obtained PRP therapy such as Dwight Howard, Hines Ward, and Troy Polamolu.
The treatment involves a simple blood draw, and the blood is then spun down two cycles in a centrifuge machine. The resulting top layer is the PRP, and it is then injected into the problem area. Most recently, some papers presented at the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons have shown effectiveness for arthritis.
