Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is an innovative treatment that utilizes the healing properties of platelets found in your own blood to promote tissue repair and regeneration. Platelets contain growth factors and other bioactive proteins that play a crucial role in the body's natural healing process. PRP therapy involves isolating and concentrating these platelets from a small sample of your blood and then injecting them into the affected area to stimulate healing.

How Does PRP Therapy Work?

During a PRP therapy session, a small amount of blood is drawn from your arm and processed using a centrifuge to separate the platelets from other blood components. The concentrated platelets are then injected into the injured or damaged tissue, where they release growth factors and other proteins that promote tissue repair, reduce inflammation, and accelerate healing. PRP therapy can be performed as an outpatient procedure and typically takes about 30 to 60 minutes to complete.

What Conditions Does PRP Therapy Treat?

PRP therapy has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of musculoskeletal and orthopedic conditions, including:

Tendon injuries:

  • PRP therapy can help accelerate healing and reduce pain in conditions such as tendonitis (e.g., tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, Achilles tendonitis) and partial tendon tears.

Ligament injuries:

  • PRP injections may promote healing and improve stability in ligament injuries such as sprains and tears, including those affecting the knee (e.g., ACL, MCL) and ankle.

Osteoarthritis:

  • PRP therapy can help alleviate pain and improve joint function in individuals with osteoarthritis by promoting cartilage repair and reducing inflammation.

Muscle injuries:

  • PRP injections may aid in the healing of muscle strains, tears, and other soft tissue injuries by stimulating tissue regeneration and reducing recovery time.
