ORA Orthopedics, the Quad Cities’ premier provider of orthopedic care since 1963, is proud to offer the latest advances in regenerative medicine, including platelet-rich plasma therapy or PRP. This advanced treatment has produced positive results for many individuals with osteoarthritis, chronic tendon injuries, acute ligament tears, muscle strains and other painful musculoskeletal conditions.
PRP therapy leverages the regenerative abilities of the patient’s own platelets – which contain high levels of growth factors – to facilitate healing around an injured area. This clinic-based procedure involves drawing a blood sample from the patient, which is then placed in a specialized centrifuge system which separates platelets, white blood cells, and serum from red blood cells. This concentration of platelets and growth factors are then injected directly into the affected joint or tissue. Patients report accelerated recovery periods when PRP therapy is combined with other conservative treatments like physical therapy and bracing.
At ORA Orthopedics, we take a personalized approach to regenerative medicine and orthopedic care to ensure our patients receive treatment that is perfectly suited to their unique needs. By merging compassionate service with advanced techniques, we help patients return to the things they enjoy most in life as quickly and safely as possible.
