PRP Injection Therapy
The process starts with a sample of the patient’s whole blood. Then, the technique we utilize results with an end product that has a very high concentration of platelets, which are small cells in the blood loaded with beneficial growth factors. We introduce these platelets into the tissue in a cutting edge way to facilitate cellular growth and healing. This can include improved blood vessel health and inflammation control. Platelet Rich Plasma, by itself or in combination with exosomes or stem cells, have a variety of benefits.

What are PRP injections and how do they work?
‘PRP’ stands for platelet-rich plasma. The repairing process in the body is predominantly governed by platelets. PRP therapy utilizes a highly concentrated solution of platelets. These platelets are most abundant in plasma, hence the name Platelet Rich Plasma. Once the platelets are isolated from the rest of blood, they are activated and injected into a target area on the body. The goal of this is to induce inflammation which will ultimately engender accelerated repair processes over a rather short period of time.
How does PRP work and what would a procedure entail?
A patient receiving PRP therapy will primarily have their blood drawn. Around 60 milliliters of blood will be taken and then centrifuged (spun at high speeds) to isolate the platelet rich plasma. The PRP will then be injected back into the patient into a site such as a joint, tendon, or the scalp.
Is PRP Painful?
Any injection carries the risk of discomfort or a small amount of pain, but local anesthetic is always administered and laughing gas is available to help alleviate procedural anxiety.
What is the future of PRP?
Celebrities such as Kobe Bryant and Tiger Woods have used PRP to help rehab their injuries. That being said, the future of PRP is limitless. There is currently a polarization from synthetic remedies to more natural ones for injury repair/therapy. As PRP utilizes only the patient’s blood and no other additives, it is the most natural option with a ceilingless future.
What conditions are commonly treated with PRP?
Tendonitis, osteoarthritis, ligament and muscle injuries, alopecia areata (hair loss), and more.
What are the goals of PRP treatment?
One goal of PRP is to restore injured tissue to its once robust composure. We believe that PRP should be one of the first targeted methods of treating an injury. PRP is relatively inexpensive, especially in comparison to surgeries that can rack up a hospital bill of $50,000 and higher.
