PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma)

Injections with PRP represent a regenerative method of care that harnesses the body’s capacity to self-heal. Platelets contain components that naturally stimulate cell growth, tissue repair, and healing. PRP injections can help in the treatment of chronic tendon injuries, acute ligament, and muscle injuries. It’s useful prior to surgical intervention and to support post-procedure tissue healing or accelerate a stalled recovery.

How it’s done

After drawing a small volume of a patient’s blood, we immediately centrifuge (spin) it for a few minutes to separate and collect the regenerative platelet-rich plasma components. We then perform a therapeutic PRP injection into the damaged tissues.

Our office uses PRP to address:

  • Mild to moderate arthritic conditions
  • Back and sciatic nerve pain (Intradiscal PRP)
  • Knee hip and shoulder injuries
  • Hip and shoulder bursitis

For your convenience, all of our procedures are performed in our office, or downstairs at Carolina Interventional Pain Institute.
