PRP Therapy in Rockford, IL
One of the most promising breakthroughs in rehabilitative medicine in recent years is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. Conditions treated by PRP therapy include strains and sprains, partial tendon and ligament tears, arthritis, rotator cuff tears, and chronic plantar fasciitis.
Medlux Rehabilitation & Wellness in Rockford, Illinois offers PRP therapy for the growth, repair, and rehabilitation of soft tissue in joints such as shoulders, elbows, knees, hips, neck, and back.
This form of therapy involves drawing a small sample of your own blood, spinning it in a centrifuge at high speed to separate the platelets from other components, and then injecting the concentrated, platelet-rich plasma into the damaged area of the body to accelerate healing.
Because your own blood is used, PRP therapy provides a safe alternative to invasive surgery by promoting natural healing. There is no risk of communicable infection and an extremely low risk of allergic reaction.
Since natural healing is a gradual process, patients who undergo PRP therapy may see initial improvement within a few weeks and greater improvement as the healing progresses. Long-term, PRP therapy has been shown to be effective in enabling patients to regain normal, pain-free function in the treated area. In addition, ultrasound and MRI images have confirmed definitive tissue repair following PRP therapy.
