PRP injection therapy is a form of regenerative treatment for soft tissue, muscle, ligament or tendon damage or injury. The growth factors released by the platelets help to stimulate healing and the
growth of new tissue.
PRP injection therapy can be used to treat a number of conditions. I have listed some of them, by body part. Please note, this is ONLY a partial list.
Hip: Piriformis syndrome, sacroiliac joint pain, hamstring tears or
Knees: Tears or sprains of the knee ligaments, bursitis, patellar tendinosis and
Arm and Shoulder: Bicipital tendonitis, partial tears of the rotator cuff and also
tendonopathy and tendonitis, tennis or golf elbow.
Feet and lower leg: Plantar fasciitis, ankle sprains, partial tears of the
Achilles and tendonitis in this ligament.
Neck and Back: ligament sprains, muscle strains, and arthritis.
PRP injection therapy involves drawing a patient’s own blood, which is placed in a centrifuge. The PRP is extracted using a multi-step process. The platelets are concentrated and then injected into
the damaged or injured part of the body. The number of times an individual will need to have this procedure done will depend on the seriousness of their injury and the body’s response to the
treatment. In most cases, between 1 and 3 PRP injections are required. Usually 1 PRP injection per month for 3 months with a follow up injection at 6 months.
This is an out of pocket expense. Your insurance will usually cover the cost of the office visit and blood draw, NOT the cost of the injection it self. The cost of the PRP injections is $625.
