OrthoIL offers PRP injections

Friday, June 8th, 2012

What is PRP? Platelet Rich Plasma is a concentration of platelet and white blood cells taken from your own blood which have growth factors that may help in the healing process of chronic injuries. Growth factors are chemicals that signal the body to initiate a healing response. By injecting PRP into areas of an injury, the hope is to stimulate and optimize your body’s ability to heal the chronic conditions.

This procedure has assisted in the return to competition of several high profile NBA, PGA, MLB, and NFL players after what was initially diagnosed as a game ending or season ending injury. Please see our informative brochure or call our office today for more information on how we can get you back to work or back to your activities of daily living sooner with a PRP injection today!
