Get Back To Doing What You Love

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are used for the repair of chronic degenerative joints, ligaments and tendon injuries. This new technology is changing the way doctors and sports physicians treat injury, pain and aging.

PRP is blood plasma with concentrated platelets. The concentrated platelets found in PRP contain huge reservoirs of bioactive proteins, including growth factors that are vital to initiate and accelerate tissue repair and regeneration. These bioactive proteins initiate connective tissue healing: bone, tendon and ligament regeneration and repair, promote development of new blood vessels and stimulate the wound healing process resulting in new collagen formation. PRP is often combined with ultrasound to guide the injections to the specific pathologic tissue or joint.

    Conditions We Treat:

    • Chronic overuse injuries to the ankles, knee and shoulders
    • Arthritic joints
    • Chronic back and spine arthritis and pain
    • Degenerative disc disease
    • Tennis elbow
    • Carpal tunnel syndrome
    • Knee ligament tears
    • Shin splints
    • Partial thickness rotator cuff tears
    • Plantar fasciitis
    • Achilles tendonitis
    • IT band syndrome¬†
