PRP Injections

Platelet-Rich Plasma

This injection is done to provide pain relief and speed up the healing process in the affected area.

A Platelet-Rich Plasma Injection (PRP) contains plasma with higher amounts of platelets than blood. First, blood must be taken from the patient to separate the platelets in a process called centrifugation. In centrifugation, the concentration of the platelets are increased then combined with the blood. Once combined, this blood with higher concentrated platelets is carefully injected into the affected area of the patient. This injection is done to provide pain relief and speed up the healing process in the affected area.
