Platelet Rich Plasma Injection (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma Injection (PRP)

PRP is a relatively new method of treatment for several orthopaedic conditions such as muscle, ligament, and tendon injuries; arthritis; and fractures. PRP injections can help alleviate painful symptoms, promote healing and delay joint replacement surgeries. Platelet-rich plasma or PRP is a high concentration of platelets and plasma.  A normal blood specimen contains only 6% platelets, while platelet-rich plasma contains 94% of platelets and 5 to 10 times the concentration of growth factors found in normal blood, thus greater healing properties.
