PRP THERAPY IN TORRANCE, CA

TREATMENT USED BY PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES

About Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy 


PRP therapy is an innovative, non-surgical approach that uses healing components derived from a small, concentrated amount of a patient’s own blood. Injected into damaged tissue, PRP therapy has the potential to “supercharge” the healing process. PRP has been successfully used in orthopedics and sports medicine to treat joint and tendon pain, ankle sprains, heel pain, non-healing wounds, plantar fasciitis, poor circulation, diabetic neuropathy, and many other conditions, as cited in the Journal of Orthopaedic Research (Jan. 2006). Recently, PRP therapy has made headlines due to its successful use by professional athletes like Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant, Alex Rodriguez, and Rafael Nadal.

Best results are seen after 3-4 sessions, however, some patients have reported improvements as soon as one treatment. With PRP therapy the goal is to repair and strengthen damaged areas. The procedure is aimed at long-term improvement of injury and to eliminate the need for more aggressive treatments or surgical intervention.

The procedure:

To keep it simple, your own blood is drawn and then placed in a centrifuge and spun at a level and speed to get the desired viscosity for your type of injury. The plasma is extracted and then activated, and injected back into the injured site to promote the body's natural healing properties. It takes about 30 minutes total time and is an out- patient procedure done by the orthopedic doctor. 

Our orthopedists, Dr. Simmonds is a specialist in regenerative medicine procedures and has developed cutting edge protocols in the regenerative medicine field.
