What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma is a regenerative fluid derived from your own blood. We will draw your blood, and by spinning it in a special centrifuge we will concentrate the platelets down to a very small amount, which we will inject into your painful joint. These platelets will then release small packets called alpha granules, which influences your tissue to regenerate (grow new healthy tissue).
Why not steroids?
For the last 50 years or longer, the classic treatment of joint pain or injury was an injection of steroids – typically cortisone. More recently, we have discovered this may have not been the best option.
