Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
Integrative Spine and Sports offers Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy in Manhattan, New York at our Upper West Side medical practice dedicated to the treatment of sports and spine medicine and rehabilitation. This cutting-edge treatment is designed to help the body heal itself by aiding in the regeneration of injured soft tissue such as ligaments, tendons and muscles.
Dr. Sonali Lal, M.D., a board-certified physician specializing in the treatment of sports-related and spine injuries, utilizes platelet rich plasma therapy as part of a comprehensive approach to helping patients heal from injury and pain. The state-of-the-art technique combines the latest technologies with a long known understanding that the body has an incredible capacity to heal itself.
PRP gives a biological “boost” to the healing process.
Platelet rich plasma therapy uses components of a patient’s own blood to speed up healing and recovery. During the non-surgical procedure, a small amount of blood is extracted from the patient and is then separated using a centrifuge to extract out the platelet rich plasma. The PRP is then re-introduced into the patient through an injection precisely in the area of injury,to assist with the regeneration and growth of healthy soft tissue.
The platelet rich plasma includes proteins and growth factors that can help to speed the repair of connective tissue, regeneration of bone and formation of new blood vessels, promoting healing. Due to the fact that only the patient’s own blood is used, the procedure involves virtually no side effects or complications.
Platelet rich plasma therapy has become an increasingly popular treatment option in the field of sports medicine. A number of professional and elite athletes have undergone the treatment in recent years, with many attributing quicker and more effective healing to the use of the treatment.
At Integrative Spine and Sports in NYC, platelet rich plasma therapy is one option that is available to patients interested in exploring ways to aid the recovery process through the healing power supplied by their own bodies. It is a non-surgical and non-phamacological approach that has shown great promise in the treatment of soft tissue injuries and inflammatory conditions.
