PRP Therapy Q & A

 

What is PRP therapy?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a treatment that uses the platelets in your blood to stimulate and support healing in targeted areas. Your body uses platelets in its regenerative processes. Whenever you’re hurt, for example, it directs platelets to the area. These platelets help your blood clot and supply the area with growth factors your body can use to repair damaged tissue. 

During PRP therapy, Dr. Manohar takes a small sample of your blood. He places it in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets into the PRP. He then uses imaging guidance, including ultrasound and fluoroscopy, to guide the injection of PRP into the targeted area. 

The arrival of the PRP signals to your body that it should start its healing processes and floods the area with growth factors that your tissue can use to repair itself.  

What conditions can PRP therapy treat?

Dr. Manohar uses PRP therapy to treat:

Shoulders

PRP therapy can treat rotator cuff problems, bursitis, tendonitis, arthritis, labrum tears, and shoulder instability. 

Backs

Dr. Manohar uses PRP therapy to minimize pain from facet joint arthritis, scoliosis, and rib problems.

Is there downtime with PRP therapy?

No. You can get PRP therapy and continue on with your day immediately afterward. As you do, your body uses the injected platelets to repair your tissue. This speeds your healing process, relieving your pain and restoring your ability to do the things you love faster.
