What is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?
PRP technology was initially developed 20 years ago to aid with wound healing and is used in Europe for this indication so we are confident that it is a safe modality.
Recently it has also been used extensively for cosmetic applications. Autologous blood is collected in a special tube approved for PRP harvesting when spun in a centrifuge the selector gel separates the red blood cells from your plasma. The low density fraction of this is then removed yielding a serum rich in natural healing growth factors.
Sportreat now performs PRP procedures for the treatment of chronic tendon tears, such as tennis elbow & rotator cuff pathologies.
We are also doing knee joint injections for osteoarthritis, tennis elbow, achilles tendoinistis, patella tendoinistis and knee joint arthritis.
