Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

Treatment to Relieve Pain & Speed up the Recovery Process

Platelet rich plasma is something that your body naturally produces. Platelets play a major role in the healing process, unfortunately, they are not always able to get to the places where they are most needed. In PRP therapy, platelet rich plasma is extracted from your own body and reapplied to an injured area in order to speed up recovery.

Conditions that can be treated with PRP therapy include:

  • Arthritis
  • ACL Injuries
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Strains And Sprains
  • Tendinitis
  • Rotator Cuff Tears
  • Chronic Plantar Fasciitis
  • SI Joint Dysfunction
  • Back And Neck Pain

At National Spine & Pain Centers, you will find Regenexx® Network Doctors who are highly experienced in these procedures. The methods used by these Doctors obtain much richer and purer platelet concentrations than what is found at typical clinics offering PRP therapy. This leads to a faster recovery and fewer inflammatory side effects.

How it Works

When an injury occurs, the body’s first response is to deliver platelet cells. These cells stimulate growth and help the body repair itself. In PRP therapy, a small blood sample is taken and placed in a centrifuge to separate out the platelet rich plasma. The PRP is then injected in the injured area, speeding up the healing process. Because it’s your own blood that’s drawn, there is no risk of infection or an allergic reaction.

A PRP therapy procedure can take up to a couple of hours. This is a safe, non-surgical procedure that does not require anesthesia or a prolonged recovery. Most people resume their normal activities immediately after leaving their appointment.

PRP therapy often has long-lasting results. Patients with temporary injuries will experience a faster recovery process, while those with chronic conditions such as arthritis often experience several months of relief. PRP therapy has also helped some patients avoid the need for surgery.
