RecoveryZone’s PRP Orthopedic Specialist, Michael A. Palmer, M.D offers PRP orthopedic injections to Monmouth County area patients seeking an additional or alternative treatment to medication or surgery. PRP injections can help injuries heal quickly while decreasing pain and discomfort.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy for orthopedics is a natural, nonsurgical treatment used to speed up the healing process following an injury or trauma. It takes advantage of the body’s own ability to heal and regenerate itself through the growth factors found in platelet rich plasma.
Platelet rich plasma is simply plasma that contains more platelets than normal. By injecting a large number of cells into the site of an injury or wound the platelet rich plasma reactivates and accelerates the natural healing process.
