The Many Benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

There are many methods employed by doctors around the country and the world when it comes to treating injuries and improving the healing process.  One such method that is not mainstream, yet has seen a wealth of users such as famous athletes, is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

How it Works

The procedure basically entails the withdrawing of about 50 cubic centimeters of blood from a patient, where it is then spun in a centrifuge.  The spinning separates and isolates the platelets within the blood, where it is then injected directly into the tissue, tendon or muscle that has been directly affected.

Who is Using It?

Basketball superstar Kobe Bryant just recently went to Germany to have PRP on his injured knee in order to heal it at a quicker rate than conventional therapy would allow.  He is not the only sports star to swear by this procedure; there are numerous others who have utilized PRP to help heal their injury so that they can get right back into the thick of things.  Tiger Woods, Hines Ward, Troy Polamalu and Alex Rodriguez are a few big names that have found the procedure effective.  Hines Ward had been extremely   positive in his praise of the procedure by stating that "The injury that I had was a severe injury, maybe a four or six week injury.  In order for me to go out there and play in two weeks, I don't think anyone with a grade-2 MCL sprain gets back that fast."

Why Choose PRP For Your Injury?

PRP therapy has done wonders for thousands of individuals, who have seen and experienced significant increases in their recovery period.  Symptoms often improve quite quickly, and can potentially eliminate the need for more aggressive treatment and therapy.  Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy can be the step towards a speedy and efficient recovery; contact us today.
