Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy in Naples, FL
At Renew Regenerative Medicine, our skilled medical team provides innovative and non-invasive Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment in Naples, FL to assist in promoting tissue repair by using the body’s own healing properties. PRP therapy is a relatively new regenerative treatment that is often used in orthopedic applications to treat muscle, tendon or soft tissue injuries.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
PRP has a concentration of platelets that are many times greater than what is typically found in the blood. Not only are platelets important for clotting blood, but they contain growth factors made of hundreds of proteins that can aid in the healing of injuries and degenerative conditions. In order to prepare platelet rich plasma, a sample of the patient’s own blood is collected. Centrifugation causes the platelets to separate from the other blood cells, which increases the concentration of platelets. Platelets enhance healing in muscles, tendons and ligaments. PRP presents a long-lasting solution to injury and pain utilizing the body’s natural healing properties.
What does PRP Therapy Entail?
During the first step in PRP treatment, a simple blood sample is collected from the patient. The platelets are then separated from other blood cells through centrifugation causing an increase in concentration. The concentrated platelets are then injected into the site of injury or degeneration, using an ultrasound when necessary for accurate guidance. To make the PRP therapy more comfortable, a local anesthetic can be combined with the PRP. PRP is a safe and effective alternative to invasive treatments and has minimal recovery time.
Why PRP Therapy?
PRP therapy at Renew Regenerative Medicine in Naples, FL can help relieve chronic and acute pain as well accelerate healing in injured joints and tissues in the body. Conditions effectively treated with PRP injections include knee, Achilles tendon, shoulder, heel, hip and elbow injuries, among many others. By creating a concentration of the patient’s own platelets, this non-surgical procedure helps promote repair to damaged tissue or joints. The platelets act as a natural reservoir to grow and repair injured and degenerated tissues. Using your own platelet rich plasma can stimulate and accelerate your body’s natural healing process. In this way, PRP supports long-term healing, in addition to effective pain relief.
