PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy)
What is This Therapy?
PRP is —a non-surgical therapy that uses components of your own blood to promote your body’s ability to heal itself.
The process of making PRP is relatively straight forward and starts with a simple blood draw. Our Medical Providers draw YOUR blood and place it in a powerful centrifuge that spins your blood at an ultra-high setting.
This process separates the platelets, the disc shaped cells known for their ability to heal, from white and red blood cells into a highly-concentrated form otherwise known as Platelet Rich Plasma. This plasma is RICH with platelets, proteins, and a variety of growth factors. It is thought that the different Growth factors in platelet rich plasma enhance your body’s ability to heal itself naturally, and platelets attract your own restorative cells to the injured area allowing your body to heal itself faster.
The Importance of Ultrasound Guidance
With the assistance of MUSCULOSKELETAL ULTRASOUND guidance, the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is injected into the site of a damaged tissue or joint. Ultrasound guidance eliminates all the guess work. We know precisely by looking at the damaged area in REAL TIME where this plasma needs to be injected. (We also use a local numbing agent so that there is minimal discomfort.)
Is PRP SAFE?
PRP is considered extremely safe because your own blood is used for the injection. However, as with any injection there is a very small risk of infection. It is an outpatient procedure, and takes less than an hour to perform and complete the process.
