Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

PLATELET RICH PLASMA THERAPY MAY RELIEVE YOUR ORTHOPEDIC PAIN

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a promising treatment for many orthopedic conditions including sports injuries.

A liquid concentrate that’s rich in blood platelets containing hundreds of growth factors, which can potentially aid the healing process, PRP therapy is most often used to treat tendon, ligament or muscle injuries, including:

  • Achilles tendonitis in the heel
  • Jumper’s knee (an inflammation of the patellar tendon)
  • Tennis elbow
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Acute sports injuries such as pulled hamstring muscles

PRP therapy also is being evaluated to help tissues heal following certain types of surgery—such as torn rotator cuff and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repairs—as well as in the treatment of knee arthritis and some fractures.

While many professional athletes credit PRP with returning them to competition, this therapy’s success depends on your injury, how it occurred as well as your overall health. To see if PRP therapy is right for you, speak to your Orlin & Cohen subspecialist.
