What Are PRP Musculoskeletal Injections?
The human body has the remarkable ability to heal itself, and in the field of regenerative medicine, doctors are using that natural ability to increase the speed and intensity with which the body heals. In blood, platelets are the blood cells responsible for blood clots and other important healing mechanisms. In platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, the patient's own platelets are used to help accelerate the body's natural healing processes. PRP therapy can be used in a wide variety of ways, including to help with healing in the body's musculoskeletal system.

How Do PRP Musculoskeletal Injections Work?
Good candidates for PRP musculoskeletal injections may have injured or diseased tissue in their muscles, tendons, or ligaments. PRP therapy begins with taking the patient's blood and running it through a centrifuge to separate out the platelets. The platelets are then injected into the desired tissues. Sometimes an ultrasound machine will be used to determine the correct site for injection. Once the platelets are injected, there is minimal chance of adverse reaction as the body will not reject its own cells. The activated platelets then help stimulate healing in the injured or diseased tissue by increasing the number of reparative cells your body produces. PRP injections can reduce the need for anti-inflammatory medications, improve function, and help alleviate pain.
