PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy is an exciting revolution in musculoskeletal treatment that harnesses the body’s natural healing abilities. If you live in the Orlando, Florida, area and are interested in learning more about this breakthrough treatment, turn to the board-certified specialists at Physicians Rehabilitation. We help patients overcome pain from musculoskeletal conditions using the latest advances in evidence-based conservative methods, including PRP therapy.
What is PRP therapy?
PRP therapy involves using the patient’s own blood platelets to stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms. During this treatment, a small blood sample is taken from the patient and processed onsite to separate the growth factor-rich platelets from the other blood cells. The platelets are concentrated and injected into the injured area, sometimes with a mix of anesthetic agents to reduce inflammation. There are very few side effects associated with PRP therapy, and many patients report a significant reduction in symptoms following treatment.
