PRP is fast emerging as a treatment for –
- ACL and MCL injuries

Effectiveness of PRP
Many professional athletes have benefitted from the treatment. Tiger Woods received PRP therapy injections while Kobe Bryant underwent a similar treatment in 2013.
What is PRP?
PRP therapy involves taking a sample of your blood, centrifuging it to concentrate your blood’s platelets. Using an ultrasound, the platelets are directly injected into the injured area.
Where they release growth and healing factors, which aid healing.
Are you a Candidate for PRP Injections?
If you’ve been unable to experience relief with non-surgical treatments and want to avoid surgery, PRP therapy can help.
PRP can treat injuries from sports and other activities, such as climbing stairs. You may also be a candidate if you have nagging pain from previous injuries like tripping and landing on your knee, or being involved in a car accident.
