Platelet-rich plasma treatment for joint pain in Bozeman

Learn about Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection in Bozeman

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) uses an extraordinary type of cell – the platelet – to direct the healing process. Platelets are present in your blood, and we use an approved kit to isolate them from a simple blood draw. Using ultrasound guidance, the platelets are injected into the injured tissue, where they release their growth factors that direct all the different components of healing. New blood vessels are stimulated to grow into the injured tissue, new collagen is formed, and damaging inflammation is suppressed, among other effects.

Platelet therapy has found application in a wide variety of medical conditions, from burns to non-healing fractures to tendon and ligament tears (see the list in the FAQ). Dr. Adams has been treating his patients with PRP since 2007 and has therefore gained extensive experience. Our clinic is also very involved and invested with professional societies that focus on cell therapy. We continually bring you the current state-of-the-art treatments.
