Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP injections)
This procedure involves taking the patient’s own blood and extracting an isolated dose of platelets from this sample. This extracted ‘platelet rich plasma’ can be directly injected into damaged tissue, tendons or joints under ultrasound guidance to stimulate and optimise the body’s natural ability to heal areas of damage.
These injections can be repeated a few weeks apart to allow for the optimal healing of damaged tissues.
Conditions Used for
