Platelet Rich Plasma – PRP Injections

Platelet Rich Plasma – PRP Injections

PRP or platelet rich plasma, is a small amount of a patient’s blood that is drawn and then centrifuged to separate the red blood cells and plasma. The platelets, which remain in the plasma contain growth factors that can help in the healing of injuries. PRP can be used to treat acute and chronic tendon, ligament and muscle injuries, in the treatment of arthritis and during surgery. Although research is not conclusive regarding the efficacy of PRP, it is an option for patients who wish to utilize this therapy. At this time, PRP is not a covered treatment by most insurance companies, however many patients still choose PRP to improve the healing process.
