Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments
PRP is an incredibly safe and effective treatment using the patient's blood to accelerate healing. PRP consists of two elements: plasma, the liquid portion of blood, and platelets, a type of blood cell that plays a vital role in healing the body. Platelets contain growth factors that trigger cell reproduction and stimulate tissue regeneration. PRP is simply blood that contains more platelets than usual.
PRP is created by taking a small blood sample and placed into a centrifuge device. The centrifuge rapidly spins the blood sample, separating the platelets and concentrating them within the plasma.
PRP can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including osteoarthritis and tendon, ligament, muscle, and joint injuries. It has become increasingly popular because of its safety profile and minimal side effects, particularly among elite athletes.
Three PRP injections over six weeks achieve the best results. Ultrasound-guided injections help to ensure the PRP is directly in the area of need.
Joint Care offers both diagnostic ultrasound and ultrasound-guided injections.
