Platelet Rich Plasma (aka – PRP) is an amazing Regenerative Medicine Treatment used to increase healing time of joint injuries, back pain, neck pain, and other stubborn chronic pain conditions even neuropathies have healed from PRP treatments.
We highly recommend you do not ice or use NSAIDS before or after the procedure for maximum benefit. This will interfere with the treatment working.

How many treatments do I need?
It’s hard to say. However, typically 60-95% improvement is noticed with 4-6 PRP Treatments per joint or body region (low back) depending upon the severity of your condition.
PRP has been used in medicine and dentistry for over 30 years now. Many famous athletes have received PRP injections instead of cortisone injections for their joint pains to increase the healing time, resolve chronic pain, arthritis, and for the outstanding regenerative benefits.
PRP is essentially your own blood liquid called plasma and also contains small solid parts of your blood (red cells, white cells, and platelets). It’s commonly called “liquid gold” due to the golden color of plasma. The platelets were previously only thought to aid in blood clotting. However, now science has revealed that platelets also contain hundreds of small proteins called Growth Factors (GF), which aid helping to heal injuries.
PRP is essentially mostly your plasma with a high concentration of platelets and their associated Growth Factors – up to 10 times greater than usual.
The PRP Procedure
A blood draw is completed in the office, the blood sample is spun down in a centrifuge for 10 minutes to concentrate the platelets in the plasma using specially designed PRP technology, and then it is drawn up in a syringe and injected into the affected area where you are suffering. This could include joints, back, neck, scalp (for hair loss), or other regions of the body.
Conditions Treatable with PRP
- Joint Pain (Hip, Knee, Shoulder)
- Sports Injuries
- Work Related Injuries
- Back Pain
- Arthritis and Osteoarthritis
- Hair Loss – balding
- Peripheral Neuropathy
- Autoimmune diseases (Rheumatoid Arthritis)
- Medications: Blood Thinners, Aspirin, NSAIDS
- Clotting Disorders
- Inflammation in the blood found on a blood test (High CRP, Fibrinogen, MPO)
- Morbid Obesity (if you are overweight then you will put more weight on knee and hip joints making it hard for the PRP to regeneration tissue)
- History of Cardiovascular Events (heart attack or stroke in the past)
