PRP Injection Therapy Q & A

What is platelet-rich plasma therapy?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a treatment using platelets harvested from your own blood. Your platelets have growth factors that stimulate tissue regeneration and healing. PRP therapy injections focus a heavy concentration of those platelets in specific areas to accelerate your recovery significantly.

What conditions does platelet-rich plasma therapy treat? 

PRP treats many types of chronic pain and injuries, including:

  • Joint injuries
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Muscle tears
  • Tendon tears
  • Ligament tears 
  • Cartilage damage
  • Joint wear-and-tear 

PRP has tremendous regenerative and healing properties not restricted to pain and injuries. 

Your Hands on Health Wellness Center provider can also administer PRP therapy to the scalp for hair restoration and to the face (via microneedling) for wrinkle reduction, skin smoothing, and skin tightening. 

Am I a good candidate for platelet-rich plasma therapy?

PRP therapy is often ideal for patients who have chronic pain. If you’re experiencing ongoing pain, stiffness, and movement problems due to an injury or chronic condition, the initial treatment approaches might not provide quite enough pain relief. That’s when PRP therapy can come in to speed up your healing and complement the results of other noninvasive treatments.

PRP is so effective that it helps some patients avoid major surgery. For example, if you have knee osteoarthritis, it might help you avoid knee replacement. 

What are the advantages of platelet-rich plasma therapy? 

PRP offers many benefits, including:

  • 100% natural, from your own body
  • Faster healing
  • Reduced pain and inflammation
  • Improved range of motion
  • Longer-lasting results than other minimally invasive treatments

Another advantage of PRP therapy is that it works well with other natural approaches, like chiropractic care and massage. 

What can I expect after platelet-rich plasma therapy? 

After your platelet-rich plasma therapy session, the Hands on Health Wellness Center team provides detailed recovery instructions. It’s normal to notice some mild tenderness, swelling, or bruising for a day or two. 

Over the next few weeks, you’ll typically notice symptom improvement, including less pain and a better range of motion.
