Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a regenerative medicine treatment that benefits many orthopedic conditions. It’s a product made from your own blood that contains a high concentration of platelets.
Platelets are tiny cells found in your blood. Platelets are best known for their blood clotting abilities. In addition to stopping your cut from bleeding, your platelets contain growth factors and specialized cells that heal damaged tissue.
Your Regenerative Orthopaedics and Spine Institute provider administers PRP injections containing a high concentration of your body’s natural healing properties directly into the tissue that needs it the most.
The PRP starts and then speeds up the repair process to reduce pain, heal tissue damage, and restore function.

Regenerative Orthopaedics and Spine Institute give your PRP injections at the office. First, your provider takes a blood sample from your arm to make your PRP injections.
Your provider injects the PRP directly into the diseased or damaged tissue using guided imagery (fluoroscopy or ultrasound) to ensure accurate placement of the healing properties.
The team might have you remain at the office for observation for a few minutes before sending you home. There’s no downtime following PRP injections. You can resume your usual activities afterward.
You might experience increased inflammation and pain at the site of your injection following your PRP treatment. This is a normal part of your body’s natural repair process.
Healing damaged tissue takes time. It could be several weeks before you notice reduced pain and improved function.
