PRP to Speed Healing of Sports Injuries and Chronic Pain
For some sports injuries, the body can heal itself over a period of weeks or months. For more severe injuries, the body simply does not have enough self-healing power. In both cases, PRP jump-starts the natural healing process and speeds it along.
Both professional athletes and weekend warriors can become sidelined by injury. Athletes were traditionally given the choice of either sitting out for weeks (or months) to heal or undergoing major surgery — neither of which is particularly desirable.
PRP injections offer a third alternative. Minimally-invasive, safe and quick, this orthobiologic treatment is highly effective for many of the most common sports injuries.
A form of regenerative medicine, PRP injections involve drawing a small quantity of the patient’s blood, then isolating and concentrating the healing platelets. At Be CLINICAL we then inject the concentrated plasma into a carefully chosen location near the injury.
In addition to platelets, PRP contains components known as growth factors. Growth factors are a critical component of the human body’s natural bone and soft-tissue healing mechanisms.
PRP Treatments Have Been Shown to benefit in the following areas:
- Chronic Tendon Injuries
- Acute Ligament and Muscle Injuries
