What is Jumpers Knee?
Jumper’s knee, also known as patellar tendonitis, is a condition characterized by inflammation of your patellar tendon. This connects your kneecap (patella) to your shin bone (tibia). Jumper’s knee weakens your tendon, and, if untreated, can lead to tears in your tendon.
How WE Get Great Results with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Theapy
PRP treatments are a safe and effective procedure that basically boosts your body’s natural healing response and focuses it on a particular area of injury — in this case, at the knee where the damaged tendons are.
In this procedure, some of your blood is drawn, then spun in a centrifuge, a laboratory device used to separate and concentrate the platelets from the other components of your blood. These platelets contain “growth factors” that stimulate the production of wound-healing cells. A solution with a concentrated level of these platelets is then reinjected at the site of the injury. This promotes healthy tissue regeneration and the quick, successful healing of the tendon tears.
