If you are suffering from a joint injury, experiencing joint pain, or if you are considering regenerative tissue therapies, you may be a candidate for Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy. Though the name sounds complicated, this treatment option is not only a minimally invasive procedure, it is also a very simple and easy procedure.
The first step of PRP therapy is a simple blood draw. The doctor takes some of your blood and runs it through a centrifuge to separate the components. The platelets, the components of blood used in healing, and plasma, the watery substance that makes blood a liquid, are separated from the red and white blood cells, then injected into the affected site. If you are also undergoing regenerative therapy, these cells will be mixed with the plasma and platelets to assist with the healing process. The treatment has been shown to help reduce pain and inflammation while promoting healing and functional restoration.
If you have anemia, cancer, an active infection, or a low platelet count, you may not be eligible for this treatment. Risks are minimal and include bleeding, infection, and nerve damage. This is considered a safe procedure and, while it is not considered a cure, it is an effective treatment to reduce your pain and improving function in the affected area.
