What conditions can platelet-rich plasma injections treat?
Doctors use PRP injections to target specific types of injuries and ailments. we treat a variety of conditions that include:
Tendonitis and chronic tendon injuries
One of the most common uses of PRP therapy is to treat tendon injuries caused by repetitive movements, such as a torn rotator cuff or tennis elbow. PRP injections help concentrate the healing platelet cells at the tear site so that the tissue can regenerate more quickly.
Ligament and muscle injuries
PRP injections are used to address medial collateral ligament (MCL) tears or injuries, which is usually the result of a hit or blow to the outer side of the knee.
The progression of chronic degenerative joint disease, or osteoarthritis, can be halted or slowed down with prp treatments. the injections work to reduce inflammation at the joints and enable more lubrication, which helps decrease pain caused by the degenerative joint disease.
Nerve damage and injury
More doctors are using PRP therapy to treat many nerve injuries in the peripheral nervous system, such as carpal tunnel syndrome. The PRP treatments prove effective in helping reduce pain, regenerate nerve tissues, and restore proper function.
