This is an exciting new treatment that uses the body’s own growth factors in repairing aging or damaged body tissues. Dr. Omid uses PRP for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions including tendinitis, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, rotator cuff conditions, knee arthritis, Achille’s tendinitis, and plantar fasciitis. Unlike corticosteroid injections, PRP does not lead to weakening of tendons or acceleration of joint degeneration. PRP injections entail obtaining one or two tubes of blood in the office which will be then spun to separate the regenerative platelet rich plasma from the rest of the blood. This is in turn injected in the area of treatment. The treatment sessions last around 45 minutes. Contact us to learn more.
