Platelet Rich Plasma

We have had great experiences with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) in our office.  This procedure has helped many of our patients.  Here, one them tells you about his experience. 

Q: What injury or pain were you experiencing prior to Platelet Rich Plasma?
A: I couldn’t walk. My knee locked out and used crutches before coming into the office. I had major pain in my knee, difficulty sleeping, and it would not bend. 
 
Q: What were some ways you tried to deal with this injury before PRP?
A: I visited a chiropractor, which helped, but not much. PRP is what stopped the pain. 
 
Q: In your own words, what is Platelet Rich Plasma?
A: Healing factors of blood which are re-injected to expedite the recovery process. 

Don't take our word for it,

Q: Could you please describe your experience of the procedure in Dr. Chong’s Office?
A: It was really fast and painless. Highly recommended! Since the last 2 years, massive changes. Dramatically less swelling, increased range of motion. I am now able to go to jiu jitsu and have zero pain. 
 
Q: How has your injury changed, improved or otherwise?
A: Swelling and inflammation has gone down — almost couldn’t tell that I was injured. 
 

Q: Would you recommend this procedure to others? If so, why?
A: Yes, it’s a good alternative before surgery. I like the shorter recovery time and that I can return to daily activities. I prefer the non-invasive methods and treatments. 

Q: Compared to other forms of treatment (i.e. surgery, physical therapy, or pain management therapies), do you prefer the PRP treatment?
A: Yes, I prefer treatment. No cutting!
