They emit growth factors which help to heal your cut, growth hormone is one of these many growth factors. PRP utilizes growth factors for healing.
We take a small amount of your blood and spin it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets, white blood cells, and plasma from the red blood cells (red blood cells are not responsible for healing).
After separation, the PRP is activated with light for 10 minutes and injected into the injured area. This helps your body heal in a natural and long term way.
PRP can be used to treat orthopaedic conditions such as osteoarthritis, bursitis, muscle strain, tendonitis, tendonosis and repetitive strain injuries.
Although PRP is a relatively new treatment and some people and doctors have not yet heard about it the basic idea has been around for decades.
There are already more than 8000 published clinical articles and many level one studies and meta-analysis which prove that PRP is the treatment of choice for osteoarthritis of the knee to prevent or delay joint surgery.
Our doctors have now supplied approximately 200,000 PRP treatments to 22,000 patients with approximately 80% of patients enjoying positive results and without any serious adverse outcomes.
