Platelet Rich Plasma Injections
Jersey Shore Sports Medicine provides PRP injections in South Jersey.
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.
Your doctor may recommend platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection to treat certain soft-tissue injuries and conditions of the hip, knee, shoulder, elbow and wrist. These include:
- Joint instability
- Muscle, ligament and tendon tears
Your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection will be performed in our office. It may require one injection treatment, or we may recommend a few PRP injection treatments over the course of a few months. The number of injections depends on how much your condition improves after each injection.
