How does Platelet Rich Plasma work?
Platelet Rich Plasma harnesses the bodies own natural healing power to stimulate repair of
damaged tissue.  A small amount of your own blood is drawn in the office and injected into
damaged tissue.  The naturally occurring healing proteins in the blood starts the repair process.  


Eliminate the need for more aggressive treatment
Whether you are suffering from tennis elbow, rotator cuff tendinitis, muscle tears, tendinitis or
knee arthritis Platelet Rich Plasma could eliminate the need for surgery or even long-term
medication.  Steroid or cortisone injections can only provide you with temporary relief while
Platelet Rich Plasma has been shown to heal and regenerate damaged tissue with minimal
to no scarring.


Can I be treated with Platelet Rich Plasma therapy?
If you have tried and failed physical therapy, cortisone injections, medications or even surgery
then Platelet Rich Plasma may be the right option for you.  Give us a call and set up an appoint-
ment for an evaluation 210-615-9800.
