Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)


When soft tissue sustains damage or an injury, the body’s initial response is to increase more platelets to the injured area to facilitate the healing process. The growth factors found in platelets can enhance the healing of damaged muscles, tendons, and ligaments. PRP therapy amplifies the body’s response to injury by concentrating an additional supply of platelets to the damaged area to accelerate healing.

Benefits of PRP

There are several benefits to using a patient’s own PRP to treat muscle, tendon, skin, ligament, and scalp conditions, including:
  • A quick, simple, and painless procedure
  • Safe and effective treatment using platelets that are derived from the patient's body
  • Minimal risk of allergic reaction
  • Zero side effects or recovery time
  • A non-invasive procedure that's more convenient that surgery

How PRP Therapy Works

Everyone’s blood is composed of the same key components: red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma, and platelets.

Platelets are responsible for controlling bleeding. They also release growth factors, or proteins that stimulate the growth of tissue, to accelerate healing and repair.

PRP Therapy works by concentrating the platelets in your blood and re-injecting them into the affected areas.

How Does PRP Therapy Heal the Body?

With any injury, increased blood flow and platelet delivery to the area is the body’s first response.

Platelets are packed with restorative growth factors that start the healing process, and they naturally attract stem cells to further stimulate healing.

PRP Therapy supercharges the body’s healing process by delivering a purer and higher concentration of platelets to the damaged area.

The PRP serum used in the procedure is prepared much like any other blood test, manually in a lab with the help of a centrifuge.

Once the PRP sample is prepared, Dr. Childers will inject the treatment into the affected area to enhance your body’s natural healing process.

This risk of transmissible infections, allergic reactions, and other adverse side effects are eliminated because your own blood is used for the procedure.



What are the Results from PRP Therapy?

Healing chronic pain and tissue damage is the primary purpose of PRP Therapy, and the results often prove to be long term.

Most patients experience improvement within the first few weeks after treatment, and those improvements gradually increase as the repair and healing process continues.

Clinical research and preliminary studies have shown that patients who have received PRP Therapy resume normal, pain-free lives.

Diagnostic images, like ultrasound and MRI, have confirmed PRP Therapy’s effectiveness at accelerating the healing process and repairing tissue damage.

PRP Therapy can also slow or stop tissue damage completely before injuries reach an irreparable stage, significantly reducing the need for surgery.
