Treating Pain with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

Pain is an essential function of our body indicating underlying damage or injury. While there are many options for pain management, many individuals are looking for non-invasive and non-surgical treatment alternatives; Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is one such option that is gaining traction in recent years.


PRP therapy refers to a natural healing method, utilizing a patient's own blood to help accelerate healing and treat ailments affecting the musculoskeletal and nervous systems.

The treatment extracts platelets from a patient's blood and concentrates them into plasma before being injected into the affected body part. PRP therapy has shown encouraging results in treating tendon and joint injuries such as tennis elbow, osteoarthritis, shoulder and knee pain associated with overuse and aging.

What are the key benefits of PRP therapy?

  • Enhances the healing process - PRP therapy significantly promotes the natural healing mechanisms found in the body. With high platelet counts in the injected blood, the body can create the chemical signals necessary for enhancing the healing process.

  • Non-surgical and non-invasive - Unlike other therapies involving surgical or anti-inflammatory approaches, PRP injections are entirely non-invasive requiring no incisions, stitches or volatile drugs to the patient.

  • Long-lasting effects - PRP injections bring long-lasting relief since they help in repairing the underlying tissues and injuries. As a high concentration of platelets are injected into the body, the repair runs deeper, and the tissues regenerate faster.

  • Reduced recovery period - PRP therapy helps speed up the recovery time of injuries and reduces the recuperation period post-injection. Patients can quickly go back to their normal work after treatment.

  • Minimal or no side-effects - Since the treatment involves using the patient's blood cells, the chances for the body to reject the cells are minimal.

What types of conditions can be treated with PRP?


  • Tendinitis - PRP therapy may help in alleviating the symptoms of tendinitis. Injuries occur in specified places can be effectively treated by address issues in the sources of pain.

  • Osteoarthritis - Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint ailment which can lead to long-term joint damage and tenderness. It is one cause of cartilage tissue breakdown. PRP therapies can stimulate the cells and help in fostering cartilage tissues regrowth.

  • Microinjuries - Microtraumas or slight injuries may lead to recurring and lasting pain. PRP treatment is suitable for treating such persistent and minor injuries affecting musculoskeletal systems in the body.
