Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injection is a revolutionary technique that can accelerate healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints. The procedure involves taking the patient’s own blood, spinning it down in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets-rich plasma, which are then injected into the bothersome area. PRP has been used for sports injuries for some time now with great success and is becoming increasingly popular as a long-term solution for decreased pain in many painful conditions such as degenerative joint arthritis or tendonitis. PRP injections use the body’s own components to accelerate healing; it is relatively safe and has minimal risks when compared to medications or invasive treatments.
