A New Approach to Treating Chronic Pain & Injury

At Mahaska Health Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, our #1 priority is putting you first and helping you get back to living life pain free. We are dedicated to providing safe and effective complementary and integrative medicine approaches and treatment options for our patients.

Why do injuries take a toll on our musculoskeletal system as we age? Some things we can’t change. Hormones, such as testosterone, decline with age and this can cause our bodies to heal more slowly.

Help Your Body Heal Itself

We are proud to provide PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatment options to our patients! Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) can be utilized to treat musculoskeletal conditions like tendonitis, including rotator cuff tendonitis, and plantar fasciitis, sports injuries such as ligament, tendon tears and arthritis, osteoarthritis and more. PRP can be a great option for active people, from professional athletes to weekend warriors to anyone wanting to improve their joint health, heal from an injury, reduce pain, and maintain their active lifestyle.

Our team of experts can help you get back to living life to the fullest with Nationally Recognized & Award-Winning Care.

A New Approach to Treating Chronic Pain & Injury

If you are a good candidate for PRP therapy, this may eliminate the need for long term medication, surgery, as well as offer a remarkable return of function.

How does the PRP process work?

The entire PRP production process is usually done in less than 30 minutes. Your health care provider will withdraw a small amount of blood from a vein in your arm. This sample is placed in a centrifuge, where it undergoes a high-speed spinning process that separates and concentrates the platelets and other beneficial growth factors from other blood components.
