PRP injections, also known as platelet-rich plasma injections, are regenerative cell therapy that uses a patient’s own blood to support the healing of injured tissues. Before the PRP injection, a small amount of the patient’s blood is drawn and processed in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from other blood components. An injection of the resulting platelet-rich plasma is then administered to the deteriorated or injured tissue, such as a muscle or joint, tendon, or ligament.
The blood cells known as platelets contain growth factors and other healing qualities. Platelet-rich plasma injections work to speed up the body’s normal healing process and support tissue repair by injecting concentrated platelets right into the injured area. PRP injections are used to treat a variety of conditions, such as tendon injuries, muscle strains, and osteoarthritis. The procedure is minimally invasive and requires very little downtime.
Most often, the beneficial effects of PRP injections are experienced for about 6 months to a year. Depending on the particular condition being treated and its severity, the effects of PRP injections may be even longer-lasting. Early intervention often correlates with the most optimal results.
Several clinical studies have found that PRP injections relieve pain and enhance joint function in patients with osteoarthritis for up to 6 months or longer. The severity of arthritis, the location of the joint, and the number of injections given all affect how long the effects of PRP injections last.
In addition to arthritis, PRP injections can be used to relieve symptoms of conditions such as muscle strains, ligament tears, tendonitis, and patellofemoral syndrome. PRP injections are a highly effective treatment that relieves pain and improves function for an extended period of time. It is advised to speak with a knowledgeable healthcare provider to determine whether PRP injections are the solution for your discomfort.
