Meet Duane “Bang” Ludwig
Using PRP with Dr. Kyle Hampton
PRP(Platelet Rich Plasma) has been used to treat sports and musculoskeletal injuries. Ligament and tendon strains are common uses and many professional athletes have turned to PRP to help speed up recovery from injuries that used to be reserved to medications, physical therapy or surgeries.

PRP at Arktos Direct Care
At Arktos, we use PRP in a variety of ways. Dr. Hampton uses PRP as an enhancement to prolotherapy treatments for various musculoskeletal problems and also as targeted joint injections for pain from osteoarthritis.
What is PRP?
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is the liquid part of blood (plasma) that has been separated from the red blood cells and white blood cells and concentrated with a higher proportion of platelets than would normally be found in blood.
How does PRP work?
The increased concentration of platelets, and therefore growth factors, have been shown to speed up and enhance the bodies natural healing process. Using targeted injections of PRP, we can stimulate healing to occur exactly where it is needed.
How is PRP created?
PRP is made by drawing blood from a patient and then using a centrifuge to separate the different parts of the blood. The plasma and platelets are drawn up and then plasma is removed until the desired concentration of platelets is achieved.
What can PRP treat?
PRP is emerging as an effective treatment for a variety of problems. PRP treatments have been shown to be effective for joint pain due to osteoarthritis or wear and tear injuries that may typically require steroid injections or even surgery as well.
“Dr. Hampton was great to work with. I have been fighting for so many years it’s hard to keep up with aches and pains. PRP has helped me keep in fighting shape and I would recommend it to anyone trying to recover from injuries.”
