WHAT IS PRP THERAPY?

Platelet-rich plasma therapy uses injections of concentrated platelets from a patient’s own blood to accelerate the healing of injured tissues. PRP therapy has shown great promise for treating injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. Science is catching up to what traditional healers have known for centuries—that the body is adept at healing itself.

HOW DOES PRP THERAPY WORK?

To make platelet-rich plasma, a technician takes one to a few vials of a patient’s blood and runs it through a centrifuge to concentrate blood platelets. The platelets are then mixed with blood plasma to make PRP. When the PRP is then injected into injured or diseased tissue, the platelets release growth factors that stimulate and increase the number of repair cells your body produces. The whole process, from the time your blood is drawn until the doctor administers the injection, typically takes about an hour. Some doctors use ultrasound imaging during the procedure. This technology allows the doctor to “see” inside your body and guide the injection to the precise site of the injured or damaged tissue.

FAQS ABOUT PRP

  1. What are platelets and blood plasma?

    Plasma is the liquid portion of your blood that circulates red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and proteins around the body. Platelets are blood cells that help blood to clot and play an important role in healing.

  2. Is there any recovery time?

    Most people can continue their daily activities immediately after a PRP injection. In cases where PRP is injected after an injury, it’s best to rest the affected area. You may start to notice improvements in as little as a few days after receiving the injection, but it may take as long as several weeks, or even months.

  3. Are there any potential side effects?

    Soreness at the injection site
    Pain and stiffness around the treatment area
