Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a substance found in your own blood that contains healing materials, like white blood cells, growth factors, and stem cell markers. These materials are important for the repair and regeneration of damaged tissue.
At Halper Family Medicine, Dr. Halper can recommend PRP therapy to help alleviate pain and effectively heal from conditions like:
- Nerve damage
- Soft tissue injuries
- Degenerative joint diseases
The goal of treatment is to reduce pain and other symptoms associated with your condition. For many, PRP therapy can often prolong or prevent the need for surgery.
After a review of your medical history and a physical exam of the injured area, Dr. Halper can determine if this is the right treatment for you.
