Are you a weekend warrior, play on a local sports team, member of the tennis club, or just very active? Do you have a minor or more severe injury? Dr. Laura can help you to stay in your game with PRP therapy!
PRP is effect for a number of orthopedic conditions ranging from arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, bone spurs, torn ligaments and cartilage. It is also especially effective with more advanced joint degeneration such as arthritic hips, knees, and shoulders.
How does it work?
We start with a small sample of your blood that is processed to concentrate the platelets – this is the PRP. The PRP is then administered to the joints stimulating growth factors and local stem cells to start the repair process. This happens over the first 3-5 days and the healing continues for 4-8 weeks.
When you come to see Dr. Laura she will evaluate you and your joint to determine the best treatment plan resulting in the best outcome.
She may combine the cost-effective prolozone therapy to enhance the effect of the PRP yielding optimized healing in more severe joint degeneration.
Whether you have knee, ankle, foot, achilles tendon, shoulder, or hip degeneration and pain, PRP can make a significant difference.
It can result in you avoiding surgery and healing faster!
