PRP Injections

PRP injections are a medical treatment that can be used to help promote healing and reduce inflammation in the body. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, which is a solution that is made from a sample of the patient's own blood. During the procedure, a small amount of blood is taken from the patient and then processed in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets and other healing factors. The resulting solution is then injected back into the patient's body, typically in the area that is experiencing pain or inflammation. The platelets in the PRP solution contain growth factors and other proteins that can help to stimulate healing and reduce inflammation in the area. PRP injections can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including tendon and ligament injuries, osteoarthritis, and muscle strains. The procedure is typically done on an outpatient basis and can provide long-lasting relief for many patients. If you are experiencing pain or inflammation, make an appointment with Dr. Johnson to see if PRP injections might be a good option for you.
