PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Injections
Platelet Rich Plasma is made from the patient’s own blood spun in a centrifuge to create a potent concentrate rich in blood platelets. These contain several growth factors that stimulate soft tissue healing and are injected into the site of injury using ultrasound guidance. Any injury slow in healing is a good candidate for PRP injection therapy including tendon, ligament and cartilage injuries as well as tears, arthritis, rotator cuff tendinopathy and cartilage tears.
