Treatments for a Sports-related Injury
Platelet-Rich plasma, PRP, is a safe and effective pain relief treatment that harnesses your body’s ability to heal sports injuries. This includes torn muscles, tendon injuries like tennis elbow, and ligament sprains. PRP treatments can be done up to three times a year and results will depend on how serious your injury is.
Your doctor will extract platelets from a small blood sample to create a powerful concentrate. It is mixed with plasma and injecting directly into the injury site. The growth factors and healing agents present in the platelets target missing or injured tissue. This treatment reduces inflammation, and most patients see pain relief quickly. Platelet-rich plasma has been successfully used to heal soft tissue and joint injuries without surgery or pain medications.
