Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Platelets are the part of our blood responsible for preventing blood loss through clotting. Dr. Gordon uses Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy as a way to heal joint and muscle pains among other related health problems.

PRP uses the patient’s own plasma as a way to treat a variety of joint and muscle problems. Below are some of the more common issues PRP therapy is used to treat:

Osteoarthritis of the spine and peripheral joints such as the knee, shoulder and hip.
Shoulder Rotator Cuff Tears
Labral tears of the shoulder or hip
Bursitis of the shoulder or hip
Tennis Elbow
Hand pain / CMC Joint arthritis
Meniscal tears in the knee
Foot Plantar Fasciitis
Neck and Back Pain
Whiplash Injuries
Sacroiliac Joint Pain
Ankle Sprains

 PRP works as a way to boost the natural plasma production in the body. One of the basic functions of plasma is to treat affected areas of the body through regeneration. Directly injecting those areas with more plasma promotes faster healing and recovery. There is also no risk for allergies or other complications since we will be using the patient’s own blood as a plasma source.

Dr. Joanne Gordon is widely recognized for her skill and experience in PRP Therapy. She continues to study with many leading physicians in the United States and participates in teaching other doctors on skilled injection techniques.
