Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
In Dallas, TX
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injection therapy is a safe, non-surgical out-patient procedure. It offers people relief that are suffering from athletic injuries, chronic pain from osteoarthritis in the knee & joints, and overuse injuries such as tennis elbow. PRP works to eliminate pain and inflammation, as well as increase lubrication, cushioning, and mobility of the joint.
PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma. A person’s blood is comprised primarily of plasma. Platelets are part of the blood that contain growth factors that can help reduce inflammation and speed tissue recovery.
What can I expect during Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment?
PRP is an outpatient procedure that take around 30-45 minutes. Patients are usually recommended a series of 3 injections, 1 injection per week for 3 weeks. You are free to go home on the same day as your injection with little limitations.
When you arrive, you will have your blood drawn by our Spinalworks knee & joint specialists to be used for your PRP injection. Our providers will harvest your blood by spinning it in a PRP centrifuge that separates the platelet-rich plasma from the red blood cells. When the PRP is ready, our providers will inject the PRP into your injured or arthritic joint using ultrasound-guided technology, making sure the needle is in the correct spot. This ensures you get the best possible outcome for your injection.
Patient’s often feel minimal discomfort because our providers use cold numbing spray (ethyl chloride) at the injection site. Most patients start to notice a decrease in inflammation in the weeks following the injection, and patients usually begin seeing results within 4-6 weeks of the PRP injection.
