PRP JOINT TREATMENT VANCOUVER
The Complete Wellness Program By Equinox Integrative Wellness Center
Looking for a safe and non-surgical treatment for tendon injuries and joint issues in Vancouver? Get connected with Equinox Integrative Wellness Center for the perfect solution that utilizes the healing properties of platelets from your own blood to help jumpstart the healing process and oftentimes delivering profound pain relief. We are dedicated to providing our patients with some of the most comprehensive PRP therapy. Platelet-rich plasma therapy is designed to take advantage of the blood’s natural healing properties to repair damaged cartilage, tendons, ligaments, muscles, or even bone.
Tendons are the rope-like structures that connect muscle to bone, allowing the bone to move. When a tendon is first injured, it can become inflamed, swollen and painful. This injury is often experienced in sports such as tennis, baseball, football, and any other sport that requires repetitive throwing motions.
What Is PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) Therapy Process?
Our blood is composed of the same key components: red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma, and platelets. Platelets are the important component that PRP therapy relies on to potentially heal chronic injuries and relieve pain.
