PRP For Sports Injury
Using PRP to treat a wide variety of sports injuries.
PRP Treatment for Sports Injuries
Platelet-rich plasma is particularly good for helping to heal soft tissue injuries, including tendons and ligaments and muscles.
We will use platelet-rich plasma in the shoulder for issues of the rotator cuff. That would involve supraspinatus, infraspinatus or biceps. At the elbow, we deal with golfer's elbow and tennis elbow. At the wrist, carpal tunnel syndrome. In the lower limbs around the knees, the ligaments, including medial collateral ligament and lateral collateral ligament, as well as the patellar tendon. In the ankle, the achilles tendon, in the sole of the foot, the Plantar Fascia.
We have also used platelet-rich plasma quite successfully after surgical repair of a soft tissue. If you've had a biceps tear or a tendon or ligament injury that has been repaired surgically, we can come in with platelet-rich plasma shortly afterwards to help to foster some additional healing.
We have found PRP very helpful for:
- Rotator cuff tendons
- Golfer's elbow
- Tennis elbow
- Carpal tunnel
- Knee ligament sprains
- Ankle ligament sprains
- Patellar tendon
- Achilles tendon
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Also Male & Female Enhancement
We also use PRP for acute muscle injuries (10 - 14 days post-injury) and to enhance healing of soft tissues after orthopedic surgery (10 - 14 days post-op).
We do not use PRP for back pain here at Pagdin Health in Kelowna.
