Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been used for years to reduce pain and increase mobility. Now, we’ve taken the healing power of the regenerative medicine to the next level. Injury Care Centers uses an exclusive, innovative, and powerful combination of techniques to improve the effectiveness of PRP.
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 clot and support cell growth. To create PRP, a small sample of your blood is drawn. The platelets are then separated from the other components. Injecting PRP into damaged tissues will stimulate your body to grow new, healthy cells, and promote healing. The treatment is a safe alternative to surgery.
PRP injections can relieve pain without the risks of surgery, general anesthesia, or hospital stays. Most people can resume their normal activities almost immediately after having a PRP injection. Some of the world’s most elite athletes have used PRP to speed up the recovery process and return to competition.
