What is PRP and How Does it Work?

PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. When you get hurt, platelets rush to the scene to kickstart clotting. But platelets don’t just stop bleeding – they come packed with growth factors that tell your body to heal. PRP therapy takes advantage of this natural healing process for chronic issues like arthritis or injuries.

During a PRP treatment, we take a small blood sample and spin it in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. Then we inject this concentrated plasma directly into the troubled area, flooding it with a mega-dose of healing and regeneration factors. 

PRP can reduce inflammation, ease pain, spur tissue growth, and get those tired joints moving again.

Who is a Good Candidate for PRP Injections?

If you’re suffering from stiff, achy joints or chronic injuries, PRP may be the natural healing solution you’ve been looking for. PRP works especially well for:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Chronic tendon injuries
  • Ligament sprains
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tennis elbow

And since it uses substances made by your own body, PRP is extremely safe with few side effects.

What Happens During a PRP Treatment Session?

At your appointment, getting PRP injections takes just a few easy steps:

First, we draw a small blood sample and isolate your platelet-rich plasma. Then we inject this concentrated plasma into the injured or degenerated area, using ultrasound guidance for precise placement. The entire treatment takes less than an hour, with the actual injections lasting only 10-15 minutes.

You might feel some mild discomfort during the injections. Afterward, you can get back to your regular activities right away. You may notice some soreness, swelling, or stiffness for a couple of days as the growth factors get to work. It’s normal to feel better within 1-2 weeks and see more improvements in the months to follow.

How Long Do PRP Injection Results Last?

Relief from a single round of PRP injections can last 1-2 years. We recommend starting with 3 treatments spaced 1 month apart for optimal results. If your pain flares up again later, we can always touch up with another round.

By activating your body’s own healing powers, PRP injections can deliver longer pain relief than cortisone shots or other anti-inflammatory treatments. And there’s minimal downtime, allowing you to quickly pick up the activities joint pain may have forced you to drop.

Frequently Asked Questions About PRP

What is the benefit of PRP over other injections?

Unlike cortisone shots which temporarily relieve inflammation, PRP facilitates true healing and regeneration of damaged tissue. PRP also delivers longer-lasting relief than common gel injections like Synvisc or Euflexxa. The growth factors can stimulate regeneration for 1-2 years.

How long does it take to recover from a PRP injection?

You may have some mild soreness or swelling for 24-48 hours after injections. Most patients feel noticeable improvement within 1-2 weeks as the growth factors get to work. You can resume normal light activities immediately but avoid strenuous exercise for 2-3 days.

Does PRP therapy hurt?

PRP uses injections, so you may feel some mild discomfort or pressure during the procedure. However, we use a local anesthetic to maximize comfort. Following the procedure, most patients describe muscle soreness comparable to a moderate workout. Over-the-counter pain medication can provide relief.

Why not have surgery instead of PRP?

For conditions like partial tendon tears or mild arthritis, PRP can promote regeneration without invasive surgical procedures. While surgery may still be needed in advanced joint deterioration, trying PRP first allows patients to harness the body’s healing abilities before taking more extreme measures.

How many PRP treatments will I need?

We recommend a series of 3 treatments spaced about 1 month apart for the best results. Starting with this initial round, we can determine if further touch-up injections might be beneficial down the road. But relief after the first few sessions often lasts 1-2 years.

Will insurance cover PRP injections?

Unfortunately, PRP is not covered by insurance at this time, as it is considered experimental. Our office fees are extremely competitive though compared to other clinics offering these cutting-edge injections. Financing plans are available.

What areas can be treated with PRP besides joints?

In addition to orthopedic conditions, PRP can treat hair loss, wounds, neurological issues, sexual health concerns, gum disease, and much more. The growth factors stimulate regeneration in many tissues throughout the body.
