PRP Therapy Can Help
|Natural Healing||Promote Healing||Avoid Surgery|
|Healing can often result in scarring, which affects function. PRP stimulates the body’s natural healing processes, so can avoid the need for any foreign substance, surgery or long term medication.||PRP therapy can help activate and promote healing. The high level of platelets and Growth Factors stimulates the body’s own natural healing capabilities, restoring normal tissue composition.||PRP therapy is a more conservative approach to treating musculoskeletal injuries. Unlike surgery, PRP therapy avoids the possibility of postoperative complication and protracted recovery.|
What Is PRP Therapy?
Platelet Rich Plasma is derived by placing a small amount of your blood in a filtration system, which separates red blood cells from platelets. The high concentration of platelets (containing a high level of Growth Factor) is then injected into the injured tissue, which initiates the body’s natural healing response.
All the injections provided at The London Musculoskeletal Centre are performed under ultrasound guidance. After treatment, cold therapy/icing of the affected area may be beneficial.
Usually 2-3 injection are required depending on the severity of the injury and the chronicity of the symptoms.
