Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Intra-Articular Treatment

PRP Intra-Articular Treatment

We are proud to offer Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy as one of the latest, non-surgical treatment option for people with chronic pain & joint injuries. Our esteemed orthopedic surgeons are known for using innovative biologic treatment methods in sports medicine. With PRP therapy, we can heal your injury and eliminate painful and disruptive symptoms surrounding your joints.

PRP therapy is an intra-articular treatment that uses an injection of the patient’s own concentrated blood platelets. Blood is first drawn from the patient and spun in a centrifuge at a high speed so that platelets and plasma are separated out. Some of the plasma is removed, and the remaining plasma is mixed back in with the platelets. This forms a very “platelet-rich plasma” solution which is then injected back into the patient’s injured area. Growth factors are then released, which promote a natural immune response to repair the injured area. Stem cells and other cells can then begin to repair the injury at an accelerated rate.

At Ortho Sport & Spine, the following conditions may be treated with PRP Therapy:
