A possible alternative to surgery for several orthopedic conditions, platelet rich plasma injection therapy uses the body’s own platelets, extracted from the patient’s blood, to help heal itself. Patients may have reduced pain in the affected joint area, tendons, or ligaments after one treatment, although as many as three treatments may be administered in a six-month period. Besides providing pain relief and healing without surgery, PRP therapy may offer patients with a nearly irreversible condition the chance to slow damage progression and undergo surgery while in improved health. The board certified physicians at Torrance Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Group evaluate each patient carefully before administering any type of treatment. We have several years of experience in orthopedic medicine, are prestigiously trained, and always strive to offer each of our patients the most effective and minimally invasive treatment plan for their condition.
