What can PRP be used to treat?

PRP can be used to treat multiple musculoskeletal conditions, similar to steroid injections, such as osteoarthritis as well as meniscal and tendon injuries.

How is the procedure performed?

The procedure involves drawing a small amount of blood from the body. The blood is then spun in a centrifuge in order to separate the red blood cells from the plasma. The plasma is then injected into the target tissue in a similar fashion to a steroid injection.

Why choose a PRP injection?

PRP injections are a good option for people who:

1. Have not had sufficient benefit with steroid injections
2. Do not tolerate steroid injections
3. Would prefer an injection without the use of pharmaceuticals
