Patient Guide to PRP Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
What is PRP Therapy?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is an innovative treatment that uses the body’s own cells to relieve pain and promote healing of certain musculoskeletal conditions. Many professional players and hundreds of recreational athletes have undergone the relatively simple procedure with impressive results. As part of our ongoing commitment to providing patients with cutting edge treatment options, Seaview Orthopaedics is currently offering this breakthrough treatment.

- Arm pain: Biceps tendonitis, elbow tendonitis/tendonosis (tennis elbow), wrist tendonitis, golfer’s elbow, shoulder osteoarthritis and tendonitis

- Knee pain: Anterior cruciate ligament (ALC) injuries, patella tendinitis (jumper’s knee), knee osteoarthritis, quadricep tendinosis
