Explore the Procedure Details

To begin the procedure, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient. This blood sample is then placed in a special machine that spins it in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the components in the blood. Once the PRP has been isolated, the solution is placed in a syringe, and injected into the area needing repair or treatment. Depending on the specific area being treated, the PRP can be injected directly into the joint or applied topically. When injected, the platelet-rich plasma provides cells with healing agents to help with the repair and rebuilding process. These healing agents also promote new blood cell production and reduce inflammation, ultimately leading to a natural healing response and faster recovery time.

Experience a Smooth Recovery

Make sure the injection site is kept clean, to prevent any potential infections. Patients are typically advised to rest for the remainder of the day, avoiding any strenuous physical activity and to take pain medications as prescribed by their doctor. Patients should also keep their legs elevated above the heart level while they rest, as this helps reduce inflammation and swelling. After 48-72 hours, the patient may resume normal physical activity as well as showering if they are mindful not to scrub the area excessively. Some mild soreness or pain in the area is normal for up to one week following the injections, however, it should dissipate after this point.

What is a PRP injection?

By drawing a minimal quantity of blood from you, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections isolate and concentrate the growth factors contained in your platelets. This highly-focused extract is then re-administered to the desired location, setting in motion the body's self-repair mechanisms.

Who can benefit from a PRP injection?

PRP injections are commonly used for individuals suffering from joint and tendon pain. However, the injections have also been used to treat a variety of conditions such as chronic inflammation, torn ligaments and tendons, arthritis, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, chronic pain and much more.

Is PRP safe?

PRP injections are a very safe treatment because the material used is derived from your own body, eliminating any risk of allergic reactions or other reactions that can come with some other injection treatments. Additionally, the injection is administered under medical supervision, further reducing any potential risk.

How soon will I see results?

The timeline of results can vary, depending on the type of condition and severity. In most cases, you can expect to begin seeing results in two to three weeks. In some cases, it can take up to several months to begin feeling the full effects of the injection.

Is there any downtime following a PRP injection?

Typically, you can resume your normal activities after the injection with only a minimal amount of downtime. You may experience some discomfort, bruising or swelling at the injection site, but this should resolve relatively quickly.
