Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)Orem, UT

PRP treatment can help to treat tendon and joint injuries, arthritis, and other painful musculoskeletal conditions.

What Is PRP?
In a quick office procedure, blood is drawn by our medical doctor. Inside your blood is a liquid substance called plasma. Plasma contains water,cell signaling molecules, proteins, platelets, exosomes, and white blood cells. It circulates throughout your body taking critical nutrients to your cells, organs and tissues. Your plasma is concentrated using a special medical device, and the blood cells are removed. Concentrating them in this way helps promote their anti-inflammatory function, which is known to decrease pain and promote normal tissue growth. This plasma, now rich in platelets, is are activated to release growth and healing factors, and injected into areas that need support.
The healing and growth factors stimulate local stem cells to orchestrate the growth of new blood supply, collagen, fibrin, cartilage, nerves, and other types of tissue. It has been used safely by professional atheletes and celebrity influencers for the past 10 years to get superior results.
