PRP Injection Therapy in Greenwood Village
PRP is a therapy that uses a patient’s own blood to collect a concentration of platelets—the essential components of healing—to target an injured area.
Platelets are clotting cells that are rich in the growth factors that coax reparative cells to proliferate and compose connective tissue. When the body is injured, plasma and white blood cells are sent directly to the area. However, when an injury is old and hasn’t healed properly, this process may need to be triggered to induce a therapeutic effect. In this sense, PRP harnesses the body’s natural healing process to address several common complaints, including:
- Joint pain
- Injured tendons
- Torn ligaments
- Tendinosis of the ankle
- Sports Injuries
- Muscle and tendon tears (e.g. hamstring, bicep tendon)
- Sprains and strains (e.g. wrist, ankle)
- Tennis Elbow
- Torn ACL’s
- Achilles Tendonitis
- Miniscus tears
- Degeneration of joints
- Osteoarthritic joints
- Chronic pain related to past injuries or chronic inflammation
