Platelet Rich Plasma

What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a treatment used in medicine, particularly in orthopaedics, sports medicine, and dermatology. It involves extracting a small amount of the patient's own blood, typically from their arm, and then processing it in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets.

Platelets are blood cells that play a crucial role in clotting and wound healing. They contain proteins called growth factors that are involved in tissue repair and regeneration. By concentrating the platelets and growth factors, PRP is thought to stimulate the body's natural healing processes when injected into injured or damaged tissues.

In orthopaedics and sports medicine, PRP injections are often used to treat musculoskeletal injuries such as tendonitis, ligament injuries, and osteoarthritis.

The exact effectiveness of PRP treatments can vary depending on the specific condition being treated and individual patient factors. Most studies have shown promising results, however, more research is needed to fully understand the efficacy and optimal uses of PRP therapy.



PRP injections are used to help your body heal naturally. Platelet-rich plasma accelerates your body’s ability to recover by introducing healing factors at the site of your pain or injury.

After a small amount of blood is drawn, it is spun to separate red blood cells from platelets.  Higher concentration of platelets promotes faster recovery when injected into affected area.
PRP injections contain a rich solution of platelets, growth factors, proteins, and other healing agents. It is an ideal formula from your own body that has the potential to address your injury.
