How Does PRP Therapy Work?
Blood is drawn from the patient. The tube of blood is spun in a centrifuge at a high speed so that it separates into its four components: red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and 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 therapy is to jump-start and significantly strengthen the body’s natural healing. Because the goal of PRP therapy is usually 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 depending 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 three 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
