Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

A procedure used to treat osteoarthritis, cartilage disease and to encourage tendon regeneration in soft tissue injuries such as Golfer’s elbow or tendonitis.  In PRP, a patient’s blood is drawn and then filtered to separate out highly concentrated platelets which are re-injected into the patient’s injured joints and muscles.  Once re-injected, the platelets release special growth factors that often lead to tissue healing and repair. Pain and function is improved over 6 months to a year, although many notice diminished pain and an anti-inflammatory effect within three to four weeks. 

Key Points:

  • reduce inflammation
  • aid cell development
  • initiate signaling response from the body’s immune system.
