What is PRP?


Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a medical treatment that uses a patient’s own blood to promote healing. The blood is drawn from the patient, processed to concentrate the platelets, and then injected into the area of the body that needs to be treated. Platelets contain growth factors that promote healing and tissue regeneration. When injected into the body, PRP triggers a natural healing process that helps to reduce pain and improve function. PRP has been treat a variety of conditions including joint pain, sports injuries, and skin rejuvenation. The procedure is minimally invasive and has a low risk of side effects, making it an attractive option for patients seeking less invasive treatments.

PRP treatment process


Blood draw: The first step in PRP treatment is to draw a small sample of blood from the patient.

Processing: The blood is then processed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood.

Concentrating platelets: The separated platelets are then further concentrated to create the PRP solution.

Injection: The PRP solution is then injected into the area of the body that needs to be treated. This can be done using a needle or other delivery method, depending on the specific condition being treated.

Post-treatment care: After the injection, patients may be instructed to rest and avoid physical activity for a period of time. Pain and swelling may occur, but can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.
