What is a Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a treatment that aids in healing injuries, especially in sports-related or post-surgery scenarios. These injections utilize your own blood, specifically the plasma—a liquid component containing water and proteins. Plasma allows various blood cells, including platelets responsible for blood clotting and healing, to circulate in your bloodstream. PRP injections address several conditions, such as torn tendons, tendinitis, muscle injuries, arthritis-related pain, and joint injuries. In sports medicine, PRP is commonly used for ailments like golf and tennis elbow, showcasing its effectiveness in treating various sports-related injuries.

Blood Collection

We draw blood from your body, initiating the procedure with a minimally invasive and routine process.

Centrifuge Process

Using a centrifuge machine, we separate platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood for a concentrated and potent solution.

Numbing the Area

Before injection, we apply local anesthesia to the treatment area, ensuring a comfortable experience for our patients.

Plasma Injection

Once the area is numb, a precise needle injects the platelet-rich plasma into the targeted body area.

Injection Precision

We strategically inject multiple muscle locations for comprehensive care, enhancing effectiveness through precise targeting with ultrasound technology.

Procedure Duration

Completed in approximately 30 minutes, the duration of PRP injections varies based on the treated area.
