What is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is a treatment that involves the use of a person’s own blood to promote healing. Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is a non-surgical treatment and is a revolutionary treatment in its field.

Platelet Rich Plasma is a substance made from your own blood. Platelets contain growth hormones and cytokines which are essential in the healing process and regeneration of tissue. PRP is usually injected directly into the affected area, stimulating a response to begin the healing process. This will ultimately lead to restoration of blood flow, new cell population and tissue regeneration.

What Conditions Can Benefit from Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)?

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is currently being used for many different pain conditions, which include:

The main goal of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is to heal injuries and conditions, which cause pain to the patient. Noticeable improvement can be seen within a few weeks, as the healing process goes on. PRP Therapy is a good option for patients who are looking to avoid surgical procedures and/or radical intervention.

Patients who choose Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy may see a large improvement in symptoms associated with the conditions listed above, as well as the return of previously lost or decreased function.

What Is the Process For PRP Therapy?

First, a certified physician will evaluate you and your medical history, providing a physical examination and review of any previous medical results. You and your doctor will determine whether PRP is the appropriate treatment for you. This may involve further testing and blood work to rule out other treatments.

Once you and your physician have decided that PRP is the best option for you, the doctor will draw a sample of blood and prepare the blood into the Platelet Rich Plasma. The area where the injection will be administered will be cleaned and disinfected. The physician may or may not apply a topical numbing cream.

After the injection has been administered, you will most likely stay in the office for 20-30 minutes after to observe the site of injection and then be released.

Your doctor may recommend refraining from heavier than daily physical activity to maximize the benefits of the injection. Some patients will receive follow up injections, usually up to three injections within a six-month period.
