PRP plasma therapy

If you are having knee pain, your doctor and One Health Medical CentersĀ  might order platelet-rich plasma therapy (better known as PRP) which involves using your own blood. It is thought that the natural healing factors in the blood helps regeneration of the knee.

Platelets circulate through the blood and are critical for blood clotting. Platelets and the liquid plasma portion of the blood contain many factors that are essential for the cell recruitment, multiplication and specialization required for healing. PRP is given through and injection directly to the injured are of bone or soft tissue, such as tendon and ligament.

After the injection, the doctor will instruct you to avoid exercise for a short period of time before beginning rehab or exercise treatment.
