Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment in Norcross

Expert Care & Treatment from the Total HealthCare Team

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) has received a huge amount of publicity over the last several years. Many celebrity athletes have received PRP treatment for sprains, tears, and other soft-tissue injuries that have been traditionally treated with physical therapy, surgery, or medication. Total HealthCare is proud to offer this exciting pain treatment to our patients at both our Norcross and Sandy Springs medical centers.

Why Should I Choose Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?

If you are dealing with an acute or chronic injury to a muscle, tendon or ligament, most pain-relief solutions only mask the pain. The goal of PRP therapy for joint pain treatment is to heal the underlying problem, reducing the pain naturally and permanently.

Platelet rich plasma can treat a wide variety of injuries including:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Meniscus Tears
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Ligament Sprains
  • Chronic Tendon Injuries

What Is Platelet Rich Plasma & How Does it Work?

Your blood consists of solid cells, including red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets, which are suspended in a liquid called plasma. The platelets contain hundreds of “growth factors,” which are proteins that play a vital role in the body’s natural healing process.

The patient’s blood is spun in a centrifuge, which separates the different components. The red blood cells and much of the plasma is drained away, leaving a high concentration of platelets and growth factors.

While it’s not fully clear how PRP works with the body, it is believed that the concentrated growth factors can speed up the healing process for many patients. Since the body sends platelets as the first response to any soft tissue injury, injections of PRP are understood to intensify and speed the body’s natural healing process. The latest studies have shown that joint pain treatment with PRP is most effective for chronic tendon injuries such as tendonitis or tendon inflammation.
