PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) Injections
Combining integrative and functional medicine in Burbank opens up several natural options. PRP injections are a cutting-edge medical treatment that utilizes a patient’s own blood to promote healing. A small amount of blood is drawn and centrifuged to concentrate platelets, growth factors, and healing proteins. The resulting platelet-rich plasma is injected directly into the injured area, stimulating tissue repair and reducing inflammation. PRP injections are used in orthopedics and sports medicine to treat various conditions, from tendonitis to joint pain, offering a natural approach to healing.
