Equinox Integrative Wellness Center Is Here To Help

PRP Injection includes the blood’s natural healing properties to repair damaged cartilage, tendons, ligaments, muscles, or even bones. Platelet-rich plasma is derived from patient’s own blood and is an innovative regenerative medical treatment option available at Equinox Integrative Wellness Center.

PRP Therapy Can:

  • Reduce pain
  • Improve joint function
  • Possibly slow, halt, or even repair damage to cartilage

Plasma is an essential liquid component of your blood that contains special factors or proteins, which help your blood to clot. It acts as the medium for red and white blood cells and other material travelling in the bloodstream. It also comprises proteins, nutrients, glucose, and antibodies, among other components.

Platelets are a normal component of blood. Platelet activation plays a key role in the process of the wound and soft tissue healing.

The Process Of PRP Injection At Equinox Integrative Wellness Center

  1. We will draw a blood sample from a vein in the patient’s arm
  2. The blood is placed into a centrifuge. This is a machine that spins around very quickly, causing the blood components to separate
  3. Then the separated plasma is taken and prepares it for injection
  4. At the end of the procedure, the PRP injection is ready to inject into the affected area
