Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) prolotherapy is a popular treatment that makes use of leukocytes, platelets, plasma proteins and red blood cells. The blood content and its amount differ per patient and will depend on the doctor’s evaluation. The blood samples are spun in a centrifuge to isolate the plasma, which then will be injected into the injured area to accelerate healing.
This type of treatment has been significant in sports medicine, particularly for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries. As a form of regenerative medicine, this treatment allows athletes faster recovery times from knee injuries that otherwise would have sidelined them from playing for several months.
PRP treatment is recommended by Dr. Charles Mahl as these injections work like a therapy that enhances the body’s natural healing abilities. This treatment is available at GenLife regenerative medicine in South Florida.
