Platelet Rich Plasma - Your Very Own Superpower

PRP Therapy Joplin MO

We humans are extremely resilient. You might say healing is in our blood – more specifically, in the platelets within our blood. But sometimes our regenerative capabilities just need a little jolt. A skillfully delivered Platelet Rich Plasma treatment can help regenerate damage, revive function, relieve pain and help with a variety of eye conditions.

That’s exactly why sports stars like Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant, Maria Sharapova, and Alex Rodriguez have been treating major career-threatening musculoskeletal injuries for decades. Then, a certain reality television star popularized it for medical facial aesthetics by having a PRP facial treatment in one of her episodes. Now it’s gaining traction in chronic condition management and amongst ophthalmologists.

Platelets are powerful clotting tools pulsing through your blood. Neither cells nor molecules, these unique hybrids are considered mature, specialized “cell fragments”. In concentrated serum form they bathe your damaged cells to stimulate healing where it’s been failing — especially stubborn, slow-motion injuries and age-related tissue damage.

You don’t have to be a reality star or sports hero to tap your own super power with PRP treatment. Discover how quickly you may win your fight with your eye condition – call us for a consultation today at (417) 547-6200.

Does PRP work?

Over the last three decades numerous global studies have demonstrated the efficacy of PRP to regenerate musculoskeletal damage and resolve pain in patients of all ages1. Clinical trials continue to evaluate more specialized uses of the therapy.

Less than 1% of your normal blood cells are platelets, which carry at least seven growth factors. What are growth factors? Proteins, vitamins, and hormones that promote cell growth. Once your PRP is processed and extracted however, the concentration of platelets can jump to as high as 94%, revving up your:

  • cellular migration proliferation
  • angiogenesis (new blood vessel formation)
  • soft tissue cell regeneration
  • inflammation and pain reduction

But this science can only succeed if delivered by an expert. After your practitioner draws your blood and separates the platelets in a centrifuge he or she must achieve custom concentration, ensure proper composition specifically for your application.

How long does PRP last?

Every patient’s experience will be different, but many have reported permanent relief or improvement starting just weeks after their PRP treatment.
