Using PRP Injection Therapy to Reverse Muscular Damage
Athletes and active individuals who suffer chronic pain from tendon injuries, osteoarthritis, and other musculoskeletal conditions can now benefit from PRP Injection Therapy. PRP is a safe, non-surgical procedure which uses platelets from your own blood to repair damaged tissue, calm osteoarthritic symptoms and decrease inflammation. PRP therapy has been used as a successful pain relief and muscle repair treatment for many years, and it’s now available to you.

PRP Treatment Explained
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP Therapie) is a non-surgical procedure that is performed in a doctor’s’ exam room, generally taking less than an hour. The treatment begins with extraction and separation of your blood samples in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets from the blood. The resulting platelet-rich plasma is then injected into damaged tissue, tendons, muscles, or cartilage using an ultrasound machine to guide the treatment. Within approximately 3 months, you can expect to return to many of the activities you were doing before PRP treatment- pain free.
Common Injury Types Treatable With PRP Injection Therapy
Chronic Tendon Injuries
Research has shown that PRP is an effective treatment of chronic tendon injuries such as chronic achilles tendonitis, inflammation of the patellar tendon at the knee (jumper’s knee), and tennis elbow – a very common injury of the tendons on the outside of the elbow.
Ligament and Muscle Injuries
Platelet Rich Plasma treatment can effectively treat acute sports injuries such as ligament and muscle damage. PRP therapy has been used to treat professional athletes who suffer from pulled hamstring muscles, knee sprains, and ankle injuries.
Research into the effectiveness of PRP treatment for arthritic knees is currently underway, with results looking promising.
