PRP for medical concerns
Plasma Rich Platelet (PRP) therapy is a novel treatment that aids in relieving pain and speeding
up the healing process. PRP is helpful in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions
in areas such as the knee, shoulders, spine, and hip. It is a non-surgical therapy with a
significantly lower risk than traditional surgery.
Tendons are tight, thick tissue bands that link muscle and bone. After an injury, they often take a long time to recuperate. Tennis elbow, Achilles tendonitis in the ankle, and jumper’s knee, which causes discomfort in the patellar tendon in the knee, have all been
treated with PRP injections.
PRP injections have been used to treat acute sports injuries, including shoulder
injuries, strained hamstring muscles, ankles injuries and knee sprains.
PRP injections are sometimes used after surgery to heal damaged tendon or ligaments (such as the rotator cuff in the shoulder and the anterior cruciate ligament in the knees)
