Platelet Rich Plasma Orthopedic Injections
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy has been used in the field of orthopedics for many years and has the ability to reduce pain, heal traumatic injuries, rebuild cartilage, and reduce inflammation.
Phoenix PRP Orthopedic Specialists have seen many men and women recover from their injuries and reduce or eliminate chronic pain in a natural way without surgery, or other invasive procedures. PRP orthopedic treatments are used to treat inflamed joints, degenerative joint conditions, cartilage tears, ligament/tendon injuries, and additional orthopedic concerns. Countless patients from Phoenix, Scottsdale, Glendale, Chandler, Mesa, and surrounding Maricopa and Pinal Counties in Arizona have benefited from PRP Therapy.
PRP orthopedic treatments work to rejuvenate tissue, while stimulating collagen production. Tendons, ligaments, and fascia all need collagen to be rejuvenated because most soft tissues are made with collagen. As tissues are regenerated, patients often experience pain reduction, improved range of motion, and healing.
While patients can often see results the same day, the growth factors and platelets work for several weeks in the healing of tissue, and full results can be seen after several weeks. Depending on the severity of the injuries, some patients may need several treatments to continually promote healing. Many patients have been able to obtain numerous benefits from Platelet Rich Plasma Orthopedic Injections.
