PRP For Orthopaedic: Get Back On Your Feet
PRP is not just a beauty treatment; platelet-rich plasma (PRP) harnesses the body’s own healing and regeneration processes. It’s proven to work in orthopaedic settings – we’ve used it ourselves extensively with professional athletes from footballers to UFC fighters as a way to get them through injury and back to doing what they love. More and more athletes are using PRP for recovery and repair during tournaments like tennis Grand Slams.
It’s not all about sports, though; orthopedic PRP can help stimulate your body to repair joint problems, muscle and tendon tears, and is an effective treatment for osteoarthritis. PRP is used now more than surgery as surgeons move away from arthroscopies.
It’s not a magic cure-all by any means, but using PRP for orthopaedic issues helps to stimulate your body to grow new tissue – in turn, this helps the injury site to regenerate and renew. You’ll be back on your feet, fighting fit, before you know it.
What Happens During a PRP Session?
We draw a small amount of your blood, using a centrifuge to isolate the plasma. Then, using a small needle, we inject your own plasma to the injury site. The plasma’s own growth factors activate stem cells and encourage your body to generate new tissue to heal itself. It’s totally safe, relatively painless and generates long-term results.
