PRP harnesses your own body’s normal healing properties to stimulate and accelerate our healing response to any injury.

How is PRP Obtained?

PRP is obtained through a simple blood draw. Approximately 30cc’s of your blood is obtained and then spun in a centrifuge. The blood then separates into two parts leaving a red layer and a straw-colored layer. This straw-colored layer is the Plasma or PRP. This is what is injected into the affected area. The entire process takes about 30 minutes.

Is it safe?

Because PRP is merely components of your own blood that have been separated out, there is nothing artificial or extraneous added to it. As such, it may represent one of the safest treatment modalities we can offer a patient. It is also FDA approved, and accepted by all major professional sports as well as the International Olympic Committee.
