Joint Pain


How do you get PRP therapy?

To create PRP therapy, a small sample of your blood is drawn (similar to a lab test sample) and placed in a centrifuge that spins the blood at high speeds, separating the platelets from the other components. The concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) is then injected into and around the point of injury, jump-starting and significantly strengthening the body’s natural healing signal. Because your own blood is used, there is no risk of a transmissible infection and a very low risk of having an allergic reaction.


What are the advantages of PRP therapy over other treatment options?

  • Relieves pain without the risks of surgery or general anesthesia.
  • No hospital stay is required. The procedure is performed safely in our medical office and takes approximately one to two hours. And that’s including preparation and recovery time. In fact, most people return to their jobs or usual activities right after the procedure.
  • Because the goal of PRP therapy is to resolve pain through healing, it could prove to have lasting results. Initial improvement may be seen within a few weeks, gradually increasing as the healing progresses.
  • Research studies and clinical practice have shown PRP therapy to be very effective at relieving pain and returning patients to their normal lives. Both ultrasound and MRI images have shown definitive tissue repair after PRP therapy, confirming the healing process.
  • The need for surgery can also be greatly reduced by treating injured tissues before the damage progresses and the condition is irreversible.


How long until I see results?

Each situation is unique and the length of treatment depends on a number of factors: nutritional status, ability to heal, overall health and the severity of the injury. Prolotherapy treatments are administered on an individual basis, every two to three weeks on average. Some patients may experience complete relief from pain and restoration of function after only one or two treatments.

In general, chronic back and neck problems require between six to twelve sessions. Smaller joints may take from one to four treatments, while knees and ankles can take anywhere from three to six injections. It can take up to six weeks after the injection for the body to complete the healing process. These are general estimates and actual healing time depends on the severity of the injury, the chronicity of the injury, and the person’s individual genetics for healing.
