Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Q&A

What is platelet-rich plasma?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a ground-breaking alternative medicine that utilizes a patient’s blood to concentrate potent substances to accelerate healing and alleviate pain from chronic conditions, injuries, and surgeries.

How does platelet-rich plasma work?

This procedure starts with drawing a small amount of blood from the patient. Blood is then spun at high speed in a centrifuge to separate platelets from white and red blood cells, producing a serum with a high concentration of platelets. Platelets contain unique proteins called growth factors and other properties that promote the body’s natural healing process.

Then the team of multidisciplinary experts at the Center for Spine, Joint and Neuromuscular Rehabilitation processes the PRP in a proprietary method unique to their practice. Once formulated, the PRP is injected directly into the injured area.

For certain joints, ultrasound will guide the injection to ensure precision. The procedure is performed under live fluoroscopic (x-ray) imaging for spine injections.

Growth factors in platelet-rich plasma (PRP) signal to the body that the injected area is a high priority, so necessary resources are devoted to repairing the injury and restoring nerves and tissues to their original state before the injury.

Does platelet-rich plasma (PRP) help with chronic pain?

One of the main tools used to treat chronic pain is platelet-rich plasma therapy or PRP. This therapy uses a healing method your body would naturally offer but quickens it so the pain stops faster, and you can engage in more activities again.

Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a non-surgical procedure the Center for Spine, Joint, and Neuromuscular Rehabilitation experts provide, along with other cutting-edge treatments, like amniotic tissue allograft or other alternative medicine modalities.
