Joint pain and inflammation treatment

PRP treatment for knees, shoulders, elbows, hips and ankles. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a form of regenerative medicine that amplifies the natural growth factors your body uses to heal tissue.

Plasma is the liquid portion of whole blood. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own plasma to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. In this way, PRP injections use each individual patient's own healing system to improve musculoskeletal problems.

PRP injections are prepared by taking anywhere from one to a few tubes of your own blood and running it through a centrifuge to concentrate the plasma. This plasma is then injected directly into your injured or diseased body tissue. This releases growth factors that stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells your body produces.

Ultrasound imaging is sometimes used to guide the injection.

Platelet-rich plasma has been found to significantly enhance the healing process. Is has been used for shoulder pain caused by rotator cuff tears, for Achilles tendon ruptures and for other soft-tissue injuries.

PRP has also been demonstrated to improve function and reduce pain in people who have tendonitis or chronic tendinosis conditions such as tennis elbow or golfer's elbow.

Some of the key advantages of PRP injections are that they can reduce the need for anti-inflammatories or stronger medications like opioids.

The PRP injections rarely have any adverse effects, since the injections are created from your own blood, your body will not reject or react negatively to them.
