PRP Therapy in Scottsdale
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatments are an invaluable option for treating orthopedic and sport-related injuries. Today, PRP is used to help patients heal faster and avoid more invasive treatments like surgery. We can help treat your injuries or damage to parts of the body like tendons, ligaments, muscles, joints, and the skin.
What is PRP?
Essentially, PRP is blood plasma that carries a high platelet concentration.
PRP treatment involves drawing a small quantity of a patient’s own blood and separating it using a centrifuge. The blood has its platelets and plasma separated from the red blood and white blood cells. The platelets are isolated for injection into the injury body location using real-time ultrasound or fluoroscopy (live x-ray) for precise placement.
PRP treatments activate the healing process. It is highly complex but involves over 30 bioactive proteins that are natural to the healing process. In addition, they secrete seven protein growth factors that trigger wound healing. In essence, they supercharge the healing process. Platelets lower inflammatory cells and enhance cellular growth.
Is PRP Therapy Right for You?
Experience shows that PRP therapy can treat many injuries, like: tendinopathy, ligament injuries, plantar fasciitis, and rotator cuff tears. Additionally, we are now using PRP to treat ankle sprains, MCL tears, patellar and Achilles tendon injuries, as well as arthritis.
No single modality works for every patient or type of injury. However, our regenerative therapies, like PRP and Amniotic Fluid injections, have the potential to benefit a wide range of patients who suffer from acute and chronic orthopedic and sport-related injuries.
