Platelet Rich Plasma

In addition to Prolotherapy injections, Prolotherapy Florida also offers Platelet Rich Plasma injections for treating chronic pain and degenerative joints. Platelet Rich Plasma is a concentrated portion of the patient’s own blood with 5 times the amount of platelets as regular blood. Platelets are special blood cells that contain numerous growth factors which, when injected into the area of injury, greatly enhance the body’s natural healing capacity. This treatment leads to a faster and better restoration of the injured area to a healthy state.

At Prolotherapy Florida our goal is to identify each and every source of your problem and provide specific, effective treatment through Prolotherapy, Regenerative Injection Therapy or Platelet Rich Plasma.
