How will PRP help me?
Your blood is composed of the four main components: white blood cells, red blood cells, plasma and platelets. PRP therapy utilizes platelets to potentially heal chronic injuries and relieve pain.
Platelets are like the soldiers of cells that float around in your blood. The main job of platelets is to control bleeding. Platelets are also responsible for thousands of growth factors that aid in tissue repair and healing of lesions. A specialized centrifuge is used to to separate the platelets in your blood and then Dr. Woodward injects them into targeted points in the injured areas. By doing this, your platelet soldiers go to work by stimulating the body’s own healing process which can decrease pain and overall inflammation of joints. PRP is recommended for many areas of concern from ankles to knees, tennis elbow to wrists, shoulder pain and plantar fasciitis. Also, PRP has been shown to aid in erectile dysfunction, female orgasms, urine leakage, nonsurgical facelifts and hair growth.
