Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

at Murphy Wainer

Orthobiologics uses the body’s own resources to initiate healing. In the Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy process, the patient’s blood is drawn and separated to concentrate the healing components that already exist in the patient’s own body. Those concentrated healing components are then injected directly into the injured tendon or muscle. Platelet- Rich Plasma Therapy has been used for decades to speed up healing and help people return to their activities more quickly. It is a safe and effective treatment for joint and muscle injuries and our providers are experienced in this procedure.

ADVANTAGES OF PRP THERAPY

Less side effects compared to steroid injections or surgery Completely natural and organic Healing continues several months after injection Promotes accelerated healing Minimal or no down time Minimally invasive in-office procedure
Not EVERY patient is a good candidate for Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy, but people who have exhausted other treatments, including steroid injections, may decide on PRP Therapy as an alternative treatment to resolve their pain without surgery. For more information, or to make an appointment, please contact Murphy Wainer Orthopedic Specialists: (336) 375-2300 or mwo @ sosbonedocs.com
A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient.
The blood already contains the necessary component.
A centrifuge separates the blood components.
The platelet-rich plasma is extracted.
The PRP is injected directly into the muscle or tendon.
The PRP kick-starts the healing process.
The illustration above shows the steps involved in the Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy procedure. This regenerative procedure speeds up the healing process in most patients, and many patients continue to see improvement up to three months after the injection. Without the worry about side effects from medication or the recovery time from surgery, patients who receive PRP therapy often experience a reduction in joint or muscle discomfort and a gradual return to their daily activites.

PRP injections are most commonly used for knee, shoulder, foot, ankle, and elbow problems. The injections can help promote healing in activity- or sports-related injuries. PRP Therapy is especially effective for chronic tendon injuries such as tennis elbow, chronic Achilles tendonitis and jumper's knee. It's also helpful for patients suffering from acute ligament and muscle injuries, such as a pulled hamstring. Finally, some patients suffering from low- to moderate-grade knee osteoarthritis have found some relief with PRP Therapy.
