Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection
This non-surgical procedure relieves chronic back pain with an injection of the patient’s own blood platelets. The concentrated platelets promote the natural healing of damaged joints and soft tissues of the spine.
PRP has more recently been reported to be helpful in the treatment of chronic pain due to osteoarthritis, bursitis (inflammation of fluid-filled sacs that lie between tendons and bone or skin), knee ligament injuries, plantar fasciitis (heel pain), wound healing and much more.
Conditions That Platelet Rich Plasma Can Help Treat
- Pain reduction
- Joint strengthening
- Ligament and tendon repair
- Improved function
- Muscle Strain
- Muscle Fibrosis
- Enhance surgical outcomes
How is PRP created
To create PRP therapy, a small sample of your blood is drawn (similar to a lab test sample) and placed in a centrifuge that spins the blood at high speeds, separating the platelets from the other components. The concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) is then injected into and around the point of injury, jump-starting and significantly strengthening the body’s natural healing signal. Because your own blood is used, there is no risk of a transmissible infection and a very low risk of allergic reaction.
- The treatment with PRP injections is safe and has the potential to reduce pain and improve knee function and quality of live in younger patients with low degree of articular degeneration.
- Intra-knee-articular injection of PRP to treat knee articular cartilage degeneration is safe.
- The body’s first response to soft tissue injury is to deliver platelets.. PRP therapy’s natural healing process intensifies the body’s efforts by delivering a higher concentration of platelets.
