At Jock to Doc, we understand how important it is for you to feel and function at your best. If you are experiencing problems with your ligaments, tendons, or muscles that require repair, our team is pleased to provide some non-surgical, advanced treatments to jumpstart the body’s natural healing process. One of these advanced options include PRP injection treatment.
What is PRP?
PRP stands for “platelet-rich plasma.” PRP is naturally present in the blood. These platelets are known for providing a high concentration of growth factors. When they are injected into specific areas of the body, they can improve the healing process and provide faster recovery. At Jock to Doc, we use PRP to inject into the ligaments, tendons, and muscles for faster healing, less pain, and improve physical abilities.
How is PRP obtained?
PRP is one of many elements in a patient’s blood. Patients will have their blood drawn by Dr. Mark Adickes. This blood is then placed in a special device called a centrifuge, which spins the blood to separate the PRP. Then, the PRP is injected into the area where physical dysfunction is occurring to naturally stimulate the body’s natural healing processes for faster results.
Why chose PRP injection treatment?
Researchers in the field of medicine are always finding advanced and biological methodologies to help improve health and address common ailments of the body. Patients who are experiencing tears and dysfunction of their muscles, tendons, and ligaments may find that this treatment addresses a wide variety of concerns. PRP injections can be used alongside other treatments such as physical therapy to provide faster recovery from mild to moderate conditions impacting one’s ability to properly perform.
