Across the world, physicians and medical innovators are coming to realize that the most important components for an individual’s health and well-being are already produced within the body. As such, regenerative medicine and therapy has come to the forefront of the remedial industry, with PRP therapy, or platelet rich plasma, taking a spotlight. PRP, which is sourced from the body’s own blood, provides numerous benefits to the skin, body, and even in healing injuries.
At Eterna MD, we pride ourselves in providing cutting edge therapies to our patients. One such therapy is our Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment. PRP therapy concentrates the natural growth factors found in a patient’s own blood for reinjection. The high concentration of growth factors such as vascular endothelial growth factor, connective tissue growth factor, epidermal growth factor, and several others promote tissue growth and vascularization while at the same time minimizing the risks of allergic reactions. The regenerative properties of these growth factors can strongly aid in the body’s natural healing mechanisms for chronically damaged areas.
Our physicians have used PRP to assist our patients with a number of issues, including torn or strained hamstrings, hip arthritis, sports injuries, tendon and ligament injuries, and many more. Across the board, patients who receive PRP have reported an increased ease of motion, reduced pain, and expedited healing of torn or injured tissues. As this regenerative therapy uses the body’s own products for the healing process, there is very little risk of rejection or other adverse effects.
If you’ve been suffering from chronic pain due to arthritis or injuries of the tendons or ligaments, don’t let your discomfort get in the way of living a full, healthy life.
