WHAT ARE PRP REGENERATIVE INJECTIONS?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy treats within a joint capsule and heals the surrounding connective tissues. The different types of connective tissues that can be treated include ligaments, tendons, fascia, collagen, and cartilage.

PRP is extracted from your own blood – which consists of platelets containing regenerative cells and growth factors. These cells and growth factors create a healing response to improve the structure and function of a ligament, tendon, or connective tissue.

WHAT CAN PRP HELP TREAT?

  • Shoulder (rotator cuff tear, labrum tear, ligament damage, adhesive capsulitis)
  • Elbow (tennis elbow, golfers elbow, ligament damage)
  • Wrist (carpal tunnel, ligament damage)
  • Fingers (trigger finger, joint inflammation)
  • Low back pain (SI ligament laxity, herniated discs, sciatic pain)
  • Hip (labrum tear, gluteus tear, piriformis tear)
  • Knee (meniscus damage, ligament (ACL, PCL, MCL, LCL), jumpers knee)
  • Ankle (ligament sprain/strain, plantar fasciitis)

WHY PROLOTHERAPY/PRP?

  • A Pain FREE Life
  • Improve structure and function
  • Optimize athletic performance
  • Increase strength
  • Create stability and awareness

  • Increase post-injury or post-surgery recovery time with added attention directly to the area

HOW DOES PRP WORK?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections utilize a specialized needling technique to improve joint pain and joint function.  The procedure involves collecting the patient’s blood which is then placed into a centrifuge device to extract the PRP. The platelets in the PRP are a natural substance that the body produces and are beneficial towards an increase of production in in stem cells, collagen, and elastic fiber.  This increase in production supports growth factors and promotes joint repair.

“After years of chronic back pain, I was referred to Dr. Jay. With his PRP injection and knowledge of pain free beneficial exercises he single handedly changed the quality of my life. I now wake up and go to sleep pain free. I am so excited for my future of health and well being thanks to LIVV!” — Justin K.

  2. If you have chronic injuries, PRP is ideal to rebuild connective tissues (ligaments, tendons, and cartilage)
  3. If you have current or long-lasting sports injuries – consult with one of our doctors to improve sports performance and improve recovery time. Don’t be sidelined for multiple months.
  4. PRP is a great, less expensive and less invasive treatment to consider before considering surgery.
