How Does PRP Therapy Work?
Blood is drawn from the patient. The tube of blood is spun in a cen¬trifuge at a high speed so that it separates into is four components: red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, plasma.
Some of the plasma is removed, and the remaining plasma is mixed to form a very potent “platelet-rich plasma” solution. The PRP solution is injected around the point(s) indicated for treatment.
What Are the Expected Results?
The outcome of a course of PRP ther¬apy is to jump-start and significantly strengthen the body’s natural healing. Because the goal of PRP therapy is usu¬ally to resolve pain through healing, it could prove to have lasting results.
Initial improvement may be seen within a few weeks, gradually increasing as the healing progresses. Additional injections of PRP may be recommended depend¬ing on expected results or the severity of the injury.
Since your own blood is used, there is no risk of a transmissible infection and a very low risk of allergic reaction.
What are the Indications to Use PRP for Injury?
- Pain lasting at least 3 months or longer (for chronic conditions)
- Sprains, strains, tears of muscle/ligament/tendon (acute conditions)
- Persistent pain despite standard non-operative treatment (PT, NSAIDs, steroid injections)
- Results of Diagnostic imaging: X-Ray, MRI, CT, and/or Ultrasound
