How does platelet-rich plausma (PRP) therapy work?

The idea behind PRP issimple, blood platelets help stop a cut from bleeding. But research has nowshown that platelets do more than just coagulate and stop blood flow; they alsorelease growth factors, which draw special regenerative cells (“progenitorcells”) to the site of the injury. Platelet-rich plasma therapy maximizes thisplatelet/progenitor cell relationship.

The physician will performa simple blood draw. The patient’s blood is then placed in a centrifuge thatseparates the platelets and plasma from the red blood cells. After around 15minutes, the platelet-rich plasma is removed from the centrifuge machine. Thephysician will then place a needle into the damaged area of your body thatrequires treatment, and inject the platelet-rich plasma into the injury site.The high concentration of platelets is loaded with growth factors, which expeditesthe healing and recovery process. This entire procedure is done in-office andtakes about an hour to complete. In some cases, a physician may even be able to go to yourgym and treat multiple patients’ onsite for a small additional fee. Theprocedure is that simple and safe that it can be performed almost anywhere.

After youreceive a PRP injection, you will be asked to return to for a follow-upappointment six to eight weeks later. Your sports medicine physician willevaluate your injury to see how effective PRP therapy has been. While somepatients may be fully or nearly recovered, most patients will return for two orthree more treatments. Injections are usually spaced eight to 12 weeks apart.Your physician will discuss the best treatment options for you.
