Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a blood plasma that holds a high concentration of platelets which is much greater than that of normal blood.

One of the body’s first responses to soft tissue injury is to immediately begin delivering platelet cells. Platelets then facilitate the repair process, attracting the crucial aid of stem cells. By leveraging this mechanism, platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy complements the body’s efforts by providing a higher concentration of platelets and enhancing the body’s natural healing ability.

Research studies and clinical practice have indicated that PRP therapy is very advantageous. Both ultra-sound and MRI images have exhibited definitive tissue repair after treatment, validating the healing process. The ultimate goal of PRP treatment is to provide an immediate, effective solution to swiftly alleviate pain caused by an injury.

PRP Therapy is being heralded as a solution for many health concerns. Common areas of use include:

  • Osteoarthritis of the knee
  • Hip and spine
  • Shoulder
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Pelvic pain and instability
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Ankle sprains
  • Tennis elbow
  • Tendonitis
  • Ligament sprains

At present, platelet rich plasma injections are not covered by insurance reimbursements.
