Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is the first ever for of regenerative treatment for joint, tendon, muscle, and ligament injury, cartilage degeneration, and wide variety of chronic and neurological conditions. Platelet Rich Plasma contains a high concentration of platelets and more than thirty bioactive proteins to help heal damaged tissue. Patients heal 2-5 times faster with the use of PRP Therapy.
Platelets are concentrated elements in our blood that are enriched with growth and healing factors, as well as, stem cells critical for the healing process of injuries. Research suggests growth factors released by platelets supply curable cells in addition to stem cells that increase soft tissue healing and tissue repair.
The patient’s own blood is drawn and placed in a centrifuge machine which spins it at a very high speed to separate the plasma and platelets from your blood. The concentrated platelets are then re-injected into the patient’s affected or injured area. At Physical Healthcare of Jacksonville we use this state-of-the-art therapy in conjunction with rehabilitation to help the body’s natural healing mechanisms and enrich your ability to repair and regenerate.
