About PRP Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy utilizes a concentration of the platelets of your own blood to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. The procedure works by separating the platelets from the antibodies and nutrient-rich proteins in the blood and then injecting the platelets into the injured area of the body to restore healing. Platelets are the clotting factors in the blood and when separated from the blood, they can offer treatment for a number of chronic pain conditions, such as inflammation due to osteoarthritis. Our team of pain management specialists at Tricity Pain Associates offers PRP therapy to promote the natural cell regeneration process and alleviate pain and discomfort associated with injured muscles, ligaments, and joints.

PRP Therapy Treatment
At the start of your PRP therapy treatment, some of your blood will be drawn and then placed into a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood. The platelet-rich plasma will then be injected into the area that is causing pain. Since PRP therapy is a temporary treatment, multiple follow-up sessions may be needed in order to maintain your results. Most patients will notice improved results in about two weeks, but this may vary on the severity of your condition. During your follow-up appointments, our pain management team will evaluate your pain level and adjust your treatment plan as necessary to ensure the best possible outcome.
