Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Many musculoskeletal injuries are mistaken to be inflammatory in nature, and treatment directed at reducing inflammation repeatedly fails. Such injuries are often the result of repetitive damage to the tissues (typically ligaments or tendons), causing decreased blood flow with degenerative changes in these areas. PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a fraction of whole blood containing concentrated growth factors and proteins, which, when injected into the damaged tissue, can help facilitate new growth of healthy tissue.

PRP is emerging as one of the most exciting non-operative treatments for sports injuries, and has shown remarkable success in treating persistent cases of a wide array of tendon and ligament injuries, such as tennis elbow, patellar tendinosis, Achilles tendinopathy, knee ligament sprains- to mention only a few.

The precision of these injections may often be aided by the use of Ultrasound Guided Injections. This can add to the safety and efficacy of the injections. Because the goal of PRP is to facilitate the healing of damaged tissue, ultrasound guided PRP can add a new dimension of pinpoint accuracy of these injections to ensure the solution is targeting the damaged tissue as well as avoiding other structures.
