Platelet-Rich Plasma for Osteoarthritis:Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common type of arthritis and a growing health problem for aging baby boomers. This progressive joint disease is caused by the degeneration of the smooth, shock-absorbing cartilage in the body’s joints. Osteoarthritis can cause pain and loss of function in affected joints. Stiffness and pain are the most common symptoms that cause people to seek medical care.
Platelet-Rich Plasma for Tendon Injuries:One of the most exciting developments in the treatment of tendon injuries is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), a process that taps a patient’s own healing factors and concentrates them to cause a healing effect. PRP is recognized as a safe and effective medical procedure that can generate healing in a chronically injured tendon.
