Do you suffer from musculoskeletal injuries, chronic tendon injuries such as tennis
elbow or jumper's knee, Osteoarthritis, arthritic knees or ankles, stiffness, joint pain, or acute joint
injury? Adding PRP injections to a treatment regimen can help to stimulate the healing process,
decrease pain and enable a return to activities sooner. Post-surgical PR injections help heal
muscles, tendons and ligaments, as procedures on these tissues have notoriously long recovery

FAQs on PRP Injections
1. How long does the PRP process take?
The entire process, from drawing blood to the injection, typically takes about an hour.
2. Are PRP injections painful?
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) injections can cause some level of discomfort or pain during and after the procedure. This is largely because they involve the injection of a substance into a joint or tissue area, which can be sensitive.
During the procedure, patients typically experience a pinch sensation when the needle is inserted. To minimize discomfort, local anesthesia or a numbing agent is often applied to the area before the PRP is injected.
Following the procedure, some patients may experience soreness or aching in the treated area. This is a normal part of the healing process as the PRP starts to repair the damaged tissue. This discomfort can range from mild to moderate and can last for a few days to a week. Over-the-counter pain relievers and the application of cold packs can help to alleviate this post-procedure pain.
It’s also important to note that pain tolerance varies greatly from person to person. Some people find the procedure relatively painless, while others may find it more uncomfortable. However, most patients agree that any discomfort experienced during or after the procedure is manageable and well worth the potential benefits of PRP therapy.
Always remember, your doctor will discuss these aspects with you in detail prior to the procedure, and they will work to ensure your comfort throughout the entire process.
3. How many treatments will I need?
This depends on your specific condition. Some patients experience improvement after one treatment, while others may require a series of injections.
4. Are there any side effects to PRP injections?
PRP therapy is generally safe. However, as with any injection procedure, there is a small risk of infection, bleeding, or nerve damage.
