PRP Therapy Q & A

What is PRP therapy?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a treatment that uses your body’s own healing abilities to restore function and health to bones and tissues damaged by injury or disease.

The goal of treatment is to use your body’s own resources to regenerate damaged tissue, providing you with long-term relief from pain and enhanced mobility.

How does PRP treat orthopedic issues?

PRP is found naturally in your blood and contains growth factors that are important in stimulating tissue regeneration. By extracting a sample of your blood and isolating the platelet-rich plasma, your Alpha Orthopedics & Sports Medicine physician can inject a high concentration of growth factors into the injured area.

Over time, PRP stimulates your body’s natural healing response, rebuilding damaged tissue to repair torn ligaments, deteriorating cartilage, and other conditions that affect your:

  • Hips
  • Knees
  • Ankles
  • Elbows
  • Shoulders

PRP is also effective in treating symptoms that result from degenerative issues related to age or disease.

What are the benefits of PRP therapy?

PRP injections benefit the healing process for several reasons. First, the risks of side effects associated with PRP therapies is very low because the Alpha Orthopedics & Sports Medicine team use your body’s own materials to stimulate healing. This reduces your risk of therapy rejection or health complications like infection.

Another benefit of PRP therapy is the long-term benefits you can enjoy after your procedure. For some, PRP treatments provide quick relief from pain and inflammation that continues long after the injection. As new cells form, restoring your damaged tissue, you benefit from long-term relief of the symptoms that interfere with your ability to function.

The Alpha Orthopedics & Sports Medicine team offers in-office PRP injections for your comfort and convenience. The procedure is minimally invasive and requires no downtime after your treatment is complete.

While it will probably take several weeks after your injection to see optimal benefits of treatment, your pain should continue to lessen, allowing you to enjoy increased mobility and range of motion in the affected area.
