During your treatment, a sample of blood is drawn through a fine needle similar to at your doctors visits, the sample is then spun in a centrifuge for several minutes which isolates the platelets in the plasma, then the plasma with the isolated platelets is injected back into your injured tissue or joint.
Since the PRP solution is created from a sample of the patient’s own blood, there are no harsh side effects or allergic reactions. In essence, PRP therapy is perhaps one of the safer methods of treatment out there!
Typically, 3-5 injection visits are anticipated Some patients with minor issues may not require as many injections, while others with more extensive issues may require more. The frequency of treatments is every 4-6 weeks.
PRP may be an ideal treatment for you if you are experiencing non-fatal injuries of joints or tissues in the shoulder, knee, hip, wrist, hand, elbow, foot, or other places in the body. Additionally, PRP can serve as an all-natural anti-aging solution to combat wrinkles and uneven skin texture. Dr. Kelner and her team can determine if PRP therapy may be right for you during your consultation.
