How PRP Joint Repair Therapy Works
PRP joint repair therapy is used to heal and restore joint movement and function after an injury, trauma, stress, or aging. If you aren’t sure if you would be a good candidate for Columbia PRP joint repair, let a specialist from our office evaluate you to determine what your treatment options may be and explain in detail how the process works and will assist in your healing. You may have more options than you realize, so it is recommended that you schedule an initial consultation so that you can explore those options and ask questions.
- Blood Draw
Drawing blood is the first step for any platelet-rich plasma therapy because the blood is what is used to treat the injured joint area. Using your own blood for this treatment reduces risk of issues arising and makes the treatment nearly risk free with little to no expectant side-effects.
- Blood Separated
After the blood is drawn it will be placed in a machine, called a centrifuge, that spins the blood very fast until the blood cells are separated and the platelets can be extracted in order to create the platelet-rich plasma. This creates a healing system made up of the patient’s own blood.
- PRP Injected
Once the blood has been drawn, separated, and made into a platelet-rich plasma it can be put into a syringe and injected into the patient’s body in the joint area where healing and rejuvenation is needed. This whole process can be done in our clinic and is not a time-consuming treatment.
- Injured Joint Area Healing
This PRP therapy can then go to work in the patient’s body now that it has been supplied with a boost of platelet-rich plasma. The body knows how to use this treatment and that is why it has been shown to work to improve joint health and promote healing.
