PRP Therapy Treatment

By Steven Meier

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an exciting and cutting-edge treatment that is revolutionizing the way many orthopedic injuries and conditions are treated. In some cases, the treatment offers patients previously unavailable relief from chronic pain and mobility problems that can adversely impact work, play, and overall quality of life.

PRP Therapy Treatment

Platelet-rich plasma is derived from the patient’s own blood, and is used to create a highly concentrated solution with five to ten times the normal quantity of growth factor, components found in plasma that help with healing and recovery. The procedure is fairly straight-forward. Dr. Meier and members of his team will extract blood from the patient, and separate the platelets from the red and white blood cells by running it through a centrifuge. Once the platelet-rich plasma solution has been prepared, it is administered to the affected joint or tissue by way of a simple injection, giving patients a new option beyond conservative treatments that may have previously failed, or surgical procedures that may not be an option for every patient and injury.
