How Does PRP Therapy Work?

  • The first response of the body towards a soft tissue injury is to transport platelet cells to the injured area.
  • Full of growth and healing factors, platelets start repairing and attracting the vital support of stem cells.
  • The natural healing process of PRP accelerates the body’s efforts by transporting a higher concentration of platelets directly into the site of injury.
  • To create PRP, we draw a small sample of your blood (just like a lab test sample) and place the sample in a centrifuge that spins the blood at high speeds, to separate the platelets from the other blood components. A lab technician handles the process manually, to produce higher concentrations of platelets along with the beneficial blood components in a much more pure concentration.
  • The PRP concentrate is injected immediately inside as well as around the injury site, giving a strong boost to the healing process.
  • Since the blood used is your own, there is no risk of getting a contagious infection and the risk of allergic reaction is low.

What is the Duration of the Procedure?

Usually the procedure is a couple of hours long. This includes preparation and recovery time. PRP therapy provides pain relief with no risk associated with surgery, no need for general anesthesia, prolonged recovery or hospital stays. In most cases, patients resume their routine activities immediately after the procedure.

What Should be the Frequency of the Procedure?

Your physician will determine how many times you should get the procedure done. The doctor may give up to 3 injections within a time frame of 6 months. However, most patients experience significant to full pain relief after having one or two injections.

What are the Anticipated Outcomes?

Since the aim of PRP treatment is to relieve pain via natural healing, it can turn out to have lasting outcomes. Patients may experience initial improvement within first few weeks of getting the injection, with gradual progress as the healing continues. Clinical practice and research studies show that PRP therapy is very effective for pain relief and complete recovery towards a normal life. MRI imaging and ultrasound have confirmed definitive results in terms of tissue repair after PRP therapy. In fact, it can reduce the need of surgery to a great deal.
