PRPFacts & Information
PRP is a next-generation injection procedure commonly used to treat the following conditions:
As Regenexx Network Physicians, our platelet rich plasma procedures incorporate significantly higher blood platelet concentrations and are much more pure than PRP offered at clinics utilizing a simple bedside centrifuge to process blood draws. Our PRP therapy procedures produce the best possible patient results and fewer inflammatory side effects due to the purity of the PRP mixture.
The procedure typically takes a couple of hours, including preparation and recovery time. Performed safely in a medical office, PRP therapy relieves pain without the risks of surgery, general anesthesia, or hospital stays and without a prolonged recovery. In fact, most people return to their jobs or usual activities right after the procedure.
This will be discussed between you and your physician. Up to three injections may be given within a six-month time frame. However, a large number of people gain considerable to complete relief after the first or second injection.
Because the goal of PRP therapy is to resolve pain through healing, it could prove to have lasting results. Initial improvement may be seen within a few weeks, gradually increasing as the healing progresses. Research studies and clinical practice have shown PRP therapy to be very effective at relieving pain and returning patients to their normal lives. Both ultrasound and MRI images have shown definitive tissue repair after PRP therapy, confirming the healing process. The need for surgery can also be greatly reduced by treating injured tissues before the damage progresses and the condition is irreversible.
