Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are an innovative approach to treat a variety of orthopaedic conditions. If you are suffering from an orthopaedic injury or condition, read further to determine if this might be a treatment approach for you.
Platelet Rich Plasma is a fluid that is derived from a patients’ own blood. This fluid is filled with growth factors that can aid in soft tissue and bone healing. Due to the healing properties of this fluid, Platelet Rich Plasma can be extremely beneficial for orthopaedic patients.

This is an innovative and new approach that Dr. Nadaud has incorporated into his practice and can benefit patients of all ages. It is a non-surgical approach that can be used to treat a variety of conditions both chronic and acute.
Mike Johnson, an avid skier and race car driver, recently experienced the healing benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma. After suffering from an acute tennis injury, he sought the expertise of Dr. Nadaud for treatment.
Mike shares his story:
“I was a week away from going skiing with my family when I tore my calf muscle playing tennis. Luckily, Dr. Nadaud got me right into his office and was able to help me with a boot and some Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) cells. We were both a bit skeptical that I would make it on the slopes, but once I got my ski boot on, I knew I would be fine. I’m sure my tear wasn’t as bad as it could have been but at the time, I thought there was no chance I would be able to ski with my family. Since then, I have sent two friends to see Dr. Nadaud and I would highly recommend him to anyone.”
