Platelet Rich Plasma

PRP treatment uses a patient's own blood to promote the healing of injured tendons, joints, muscles and ligaments.


What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment ?

PRP treatment is an autologous procedure meaning ‘from your own body’ that involves a small amount of blood being drawn from the body before being processed using a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma in the blood. The plasma is then further processed with a centrifuge to separate a protein liquid, which is injected into the joint to treat pain and slow the progression of cartilage degradation, enabling you to get back on your feet faster. PRP treatment is used for Osteoarthritis, Joint degeneration, Tendinopathy, Tendonitis and partial tears of ACL and rotator cuff.

Patients may experience some localised pain and swelling from their injection, which will subside over 24-48 hours. There are no lasting side effects of the treatment, but we suggest bringing someone with you on the day of your treatment. It is recommended that you minimise your activity level for 14 days (but not to exceed pre-injection levels). Pain is reduced after just one week and clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of one injection. The effect of the treatment may take 3-4 weeks to become evident following the injection, with a sustained improvement over the coming weeks and months. Studies suggest one injection can last at least 12 months and will delay the need for surgical joint replacements over time.
