PRP injections are a promising solution to accelerate the healing of tendon injuries and osteoarthritis naturally without subjecting patients to significant risk. It is a safe and natural alternative to surgery for chronic conditions including, but not limited to:
Chronic neck, back, knee, hip, elbow, foot and shoulder pain
Articular cartilage injury
Resistant bone fractures
How Do PRP Injections Work?
Platelets are particles found in the blood whose primary purpose is to respond to injury and begin the healing process. For instance, if you get a cut on your arm, platelets migrate to the site of injury and release proteins into the bloodstream called growth factors. The growth factors then begin to heal the cut, and before you know it the skin is like new.
PRP is a one-day, outpatient procedure where the patient’s own blood is drawn, spun and processed. Only the platelets and plasma are then re-injected into the affected area. The platelets release growth factors, and the healing process begins and continues for up to 90 days. The healing that occurs from each PRP injection is permanent and will only become damaged again from re-injury to the area or natural aging. This essentially allows you to “reset the clock” on injured joints, muscles and cartilage.
Combining technology and the body’s own ability to heal itself, this non-surgical treatment could eliminate the need for more aggressive medical treatments, joint replacements or surgery.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
There are no known negative side effects of PRP injections, although soreness may be felt at the site of injection. This is a positive sign that the healing process has been set into motion.
The Proof is in the Science
A study published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine showed the following results from PRP injections in patients with chronic elbow tendinosis:
46% pain relief by 4 weeks
60% pain relief by 8 weeks
81% pain relief by 6 months
At the conclusion of the study, 93% of patients were completely satisfied with the PRP injections and had avoided surgery.
