PRP is a component of your blood (plasma) with concentrations of platelets above normal values. PRP typically has 3-8 times more growth factors of normal platelet levels.

Platelet Rich Plasma

PRP is an FDA-approved therapeutic injection process for the growth, repair, and rehabilitation of connective tissue, such as shoulders, knees, hips, neck, back, etc. PRP therapy aides the body’s natural healing process by delivering a higher concentration of platelets, directly into the area of need.

What is PRP Therapy?

Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP for short, is a process by which the patients blood is drawn using a special blood collection tube that contains an anticoagulant.

When processed in a centrifuge, the red blood cells are trapped beneath the gel separation layer and the concentrated platelets are captured above it

These platelets are then extracted into a syringe and injected into the area of the patients injury or spots for anti-aging treatment.

The process has been shown to be safe and effective in treating the following common conditions:

 

  • Osteoarthritis of the Knee, Shoulder, Hip & Spine
  • Rotator Cuff Strains & Tears
  • Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL)
  • Pelvic Pain & Instability
  • Back & Neck Injuries / Pain
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Tendonitis & Ligament Sprains
  • Chronic Knee Pain
  • Muscle Strains

How Do I Know If PRP Is Right For Me?

 

  • Pain lasting at least 3 months or longer (for chronic conditions)
  • Sprains, strains, tears of muscle/ligament/tendon (acute conditions)
  • Symptoms and physical examination results consistent with diagnosis
  • Persistent pain despite standard nonoperative treatment (physical therapy, NSAIDs, activity modification, steroid injections, etc.)
  • Pathological changes seen on diagnostic imaging: X-Ray, MRI, CT, and/or ultrasound
  • Patient wishes to delay or avoid surgical treatment

Are You Ready To Make A Real Change?

Frequently Asked Questions About PRP

  • Are there any adverse reactions?

Some patients have had some slight swelling, pain, or bruising shortly after the injection. This is likely due to the fact that blood and healing properties of the blood are rushing to the area of injury that has been injected to do it’s work, but this is temporary. There is a slight risk of blood clotting, increased bleeding, and a chance of infection, as with any other injection based procedure

  • Are there any contraindications?

Patients that are on a high dose of blood thinner such as Plavix, Coumadin, Warfarin, etc. have an increased risk of post procedure bleeding and hematoma. In these cases we require an INR score (blood clotting time study) to be performed before the procedure to ensure safety

  • Is PRP FDA Approved?

Yes, the Food & Drug Administration has approved PRP therapy, and is also conducting further research into advancing this treatment.
