Anyone who follows the Phillies knows about Aaron Nola’s devastating injury in 2016. It took him out of the game for the rest of the 2016 season!

What you may not know is how he recovered and is back to feeling 100%. His recovery is remarkable and primarily due to his highly effective PRP therapy that helped his injury recover quickly and safely. PRP has proved highly effective for treating sports injury, and every Phillies fan is glad for that!

So, you may be wondering: what exactly is PRP in Philadelphia and what does it actually do?

How PRP in Philadelphia Can Put You Back in the Game Faster than Ever

The biggest benefit of PRP is that it is entirely natural and is derived from the patient’s own blood. These means that as long as the injections are performed correctly it is essentially a risk free procedure.

But how does it work?

It’s quite simple really, platelets are the cells in the blood that cause tissue to regenerate and new cells to grow. So, to take advantage of this natural rejuvenating properties of your own body, a small blood sample is drawn and using a centrifuge machine, the red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and the plasma. This plasma now contains a higher than normal number of platelets and is called platelet-rich plasma, or PRP.

Since your body is using its own natural healing methods, the recovery is shorter and less painful than other methods. The procedure itself is short and after you can immediately return to your normal life. Minor pain may continue for a few days, which can be treated with ibuprofen.

By using a PRP in Philadelphia to treat your sports injuries you can be naturally and quickly healed, just like Aaron Nola! If you think benefit from PRP for sports injury or if you have further questions, please contact Dr. Stuart A. Kauffman.
