Platelet Rich Plasma Injections (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma Injections (PRP)

A Division of Jersey Shore Sports Medicine

Platelets contain numerous growth factors that help to repair injured tissue. In PRP Injections, the patient’s blood is drawn, spun down, and separated in a centrifuge, concentrating the platelets and creating plasma that is rich with healing properties. This platelet-rich plasma is then injected into and around the affected area. By introducing platelet rich plasma to the damaged area, the body is tricked into believing that the chronic injury is new and a fresh wave of healing begins.
