Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

You are in the right place.

What is PRP therapy?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a minimally-invasive procedure that promotes the body’s natural repair process in response to injury. Plasma rich platelet therapy, in conjunction with stem cell therapy, is part of a rising practice called regenerative therapies.

Platelets are a natural resource of growth factors, proteins, and other products that can help kick-start the body’s repair process in degenerative or injured tissue. While PRP has gained so much traction as it was embraced by many celebrities and athletes, the science behind it is much more fascinating.

The PRP uses your own concentrated platelets and growth factors to stimulate and enhance the body’s own healing ability. For people who prefer treating the cause of their pain rather than just masking the symptoms, PRP therapy is a fantastic alternative.

PRP can treat various conditions such as Osteoarthritis, ligament or tendon injuries, Tennis elbow, Rotator cuff tears, plantar fasciitis, meniscus and cartilage damage, Back pain and others.

How is PRP therapy done?

The first step is collecting a blood sample from the patient. A centrifuge is then used to separate the blood’s various components. After that, platelet-rich plasma can be extracted and injected into a tendon, ligament, or any other area of interest. Since PRP is created using your own blood, there is almost no chance of infection or disease transfer. The procedure is basically painless, takes 20-30 minutes and is done in office.

How long does it take to see the results?

While the procedure takes only 20-30 minutes. Results take longer as the body is naturally slow to repair damaged tissue. You will start feeling the results after 6 weeks and obtain full effect within 3-4 months. Combining PRP with physical therapy was noted to expedite recovery.

What Factors Inhibit the Effectiveness of a PRP Injection?

The type of centrifuge, treatment protocol, purity of the extract, and the doctor expertise make a significant different.

How Does a PRP Injection Compare to Other Treatments?

Efficacy of treatment depends more on accurate patient selection rather than type of treatment. For example: PRP is more effective for patients with mild to moderate osteoarthritis.

For patients with advanced chronic osteoarthritis, nerve block or stimulation may be a better option. Therefore, the earlier your start PRP treatments, the easier it is to heal your damaged tissue.

PRP is also a safer alternative to recurrent steroid injections which may have significant side effects on your health. Surgery generally means 2-3 months of limited activity and post operative pain. Meanwhile, a PRP injection can help you delay or avoid surgery completely.
