PRP Joint Injections
Platelet Rich Plasma is a type of Regenerative Injection Therapy used to treat many soft tissue injuries (tendons and ligaments).
PRP involves taking blood from a vein in the arm and separating the platelets from the rest of the components of the blood.
This is NOT the same as a cortisone injection; cortisone injections are only temporary pain relievers that do not alter the underlying cause of the pain.
Most procedures including plasma therapy for joints take 30-35 minutes.
Healing takes place over the course of a few weeks.
The following musculoskeletal conditions can be treated with PRP:
- Neck and back pain
- Shoulder pain
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Knee pain/bursitis
- Hip bursitis
- Tennis elbow
- Golfer’s elbow
- Chronic ankle pain
