How Does PRP Therapy Work?
PRP refers to the use of plasma found in blood. Plasma contains a high concentration of “platelets.” These platelets contain “growth factors,” which are said to promote tissue regeneration. Treatment comes in the form of injections. Injecting PRP into damaged tissues will stimulate your body to grow new cells and promote healing.
What To Expect: PRP Treatment in Our Louisville, KY Clinic
During your first visit at our Louisville Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy clinic, we’ll discuss your situation and evaluate the extent of your injury. Depending on the injury and/or damaged area, we will make recommendations for the appropriate number of injections and the possible treatment options that can help with the healing process. Treatment is a quick outpatient procedure performed at our medical facility. The procedure will vary from patient to patient, but typically the standard session goes like this: 1.) Blood is withdrawn from the patient 2.) Blood is placed in a centrifuge and spun to “concentrate the platelets” (i.e., separate the platelet-rich plasma from the blood). 3.) Our PRP doctors inject the concentrated platelets into the damaged portion of the tendon or cartilage.
