Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections
PRP injections use the bodies natural properties to heal joint damage and pain as well and work very similar to the way stem cell injections do - the main difference being that platelets are drawn from your blood. This, too, is a nonsurgical method to help you rid of joint pain and get back to feeling like your best self.
THE DETAILS ABOUT PRP INJECTIONS
How's it work?
Our blood contains Platelets that naturally promote healing. Once the doctor has drawn your blood and separated out the Platelets, they will then inject that concentrated blood back into your areas of pain, damage or injury.
What are the benefits?
PRP injections have very similar benefits to stem cell injections - they, too, are non-invasive and require no surgical procedure. There is also a quick recovery time and no scarring or external damage. And because Platelets are naturally occurring in your body, injecting them actually promotes natural healing.
What can I expect?
At first, the spot you received the injections may be sore, but within 6 weeks the healing process will be complete! Some patients need just 1 injection, while others will need 2 or 3 to be back to feeling their best.
