PLATELET-RICH PLASMA THERAPY (PRP)

Go Beyond The Average

Platelet-rich plasma, combined with other regenerative treatments, provides a faster healing and recovery experience you won’t get anywhere else

 

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been used for years to reduce pain and increase mobility. Now, we’ve taken the healing power of regenerative medicine to the next level. Injury Care Centers uses an exclusive, innovative, and powerful combination of techniques to improve the effectiveness of PRP.

 

Whether you’re a weekend warrior suffering from chronic pain or an active person dealing with pain caused by osteoarthritis, PRP is a safe alternative to surgery. Regenerative medicine helps the body to heal itself. Some of the world’s most elite athletes, like Tiger Woods and Rafael Nadal, have used PRP to speed up the recovery process and return to competition.

 

PRP INJECTIONS

Our three-pronged, comprehensive therapy, known as Targeting, begins with shockwave therapy to break down injured tissue and prepare the body for PRP. PRP is then injected directly into damaged tissues to motivate the body to grow new, healthy cells. In the final step, we use a laser to stimulate and rejuvenate the area, significantly speeding up your recovery time.

PRP injections are made up of plasma, a component of your blood that contains special proteins that help your blood to clot and support cell growth. Injecting PRP into damaged tissues will stimulate your body to grow new, healthy cells, and promote healing. Most people can resume their normal activities almost immediately after PRP therapy.

 

CONDITIONS TREATED

Hair loss: PRP injections into the scalp promote hair growth and prevent hair loss. PRP is also effective in treating androgenic alopecia, which is also known as male pattern baldness.

Tendon injuries: Tendons are usually slow to heal after injury. Injections can help in the recovery process. Injections are used to treat chronic tendon problems, such as tennis elbow, Achilles tendonitis, and jumper’s knee.

Acute injuries: Sports injuries, such as pulled muscles or sprains are treated with injections.

Postsurgical repair: After surgery to repair tendons or ligaments, doctors may use injections to speed up the recovery process.

Osteoarthritis: Injections may also help ease knee pain caused by osteoarthritis.

DOES MY INSURANCE COVER PRP?

While some insurance companies cover PRP, others do not.  Cost varies depending on the treatment and number of sessions needed. You will be responsible for the full payment of the procedure.
