Get Back to Peak Performance with PRP Therapy in Anchorage, AK

Are you struggling with a nagging sports injury or chronic pain that just won't seem to go away? You're not alone. Millions of people worldwide face similar challenges, often resulting in frustration, missed activities, and a diminished quality of life. But now there's hope, because a new innovative treatment option called Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy can help accelerate healing, reduce pain, and get you back to doing what you love faster - all without surgery.

What is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is derived from a patient's blood. A sample is taken in clinic and run through a centrifuge which separates the PRP from the rest of the blood. The platelets are suspended with additional fluid called plasma. Together, platelets and plasma have multiple growth, healing, and anti-inflammatory benefits when injected at an injury site.

Why Choose PRP Therapy?

PRP therapy offers a unique and effective alternative to traditional pain management methods like surgery or medication. Here are some reasons why you might choose PRP:

  • Non-surgical and minimally invasive: No need for scalpels or lengthy recovery times. PRP injections are a quick and comfortable procedure performed in-office.

  • Faster healing: PRP can significantly accelerate tissue repair, allowing you to get back to your activities sooner.

  • Reduced pain: The growth factors in PRP have anti-inflammatory properties, providing natural pain relief and improving function.

  • Safe and effective: PRP uses your own blood, minimizing the risk of allergic reactions or side effects.

  • Promising results: Research shows PRP therapy can be effective for treating a variety of conditions.

What are PRP Injections Used to Treat?

Applications: Participating in a tennis elbow study, we found PRP therapy improved the elbow in over 90% of patients. Patellar tendinitis (pain from diseased tendons under the kneecap commonly referred to as jumpers' knee) showed favorable results when patients performed physical therapy following PRP therapy. For rotator cuff tears, we have used PRP therapy in conjunction with surgery. Our literature supports that patients treated with this adjunct have had better outcomes. Using PRP in all our total-joint surgeries results in a very low infection rate (<1%). When used to treat osteoarthritis, we see about 12 months of lasting anti-inflammatory symptomatic relief. The bottom line, PRP can help keep you moving and active.
