Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
Tendons and ligaments connect muscles to bone, making it possible for you to walk, jump, lift and move. Once injured, tendons and ligaments do not heal easily because they naturally have poor blood supply, particularly where they connect to bone. As a result, the tendons and ligaments become weak and the muscles become over-taxed causing chronic pain, weakness and further damage.
Common treatment options include: rest, anti-inflammatory medicines, physical therapy, bracing and even corticosteroid injections. For some patients, these treatment options are not enough and do not provide long-term relief.
Now there is a new treatment that is accelerating the way patients heal from chronic problems with tendons, ligaments and muscles. It’s called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy.
