Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments use the body's natural healing process to speed the recovery of musculoskeletal tissues. PRP can treat sports injuries such as torn ligaments and damaged tendons. It's also beneficial for patients struggling with arthritis and joint pain and can help speed wound healing. Using your own plasma, Dr. Wong injects platelets into specific areas of the body to help speed recovery and renewal.
How does PRP work?
PRP uses your own platelets to nourish tissues and stimulate the body's natural regenerative process. It starts by taking a small blood sample and extracting the platelet-rich plasma. After treatment, the platelets are injected into the problem areas, such as tendons or joints. The concentration of platelets can help speed up healing time and decrease painful symptoms.
How long do the effects of PRP treatments last?
The effects of the injection last for up to nine months, depending on the person and the injection site. You'll continue to experience the benefits of the injections during that time, after which you may need an additional injection to continue enjoying the benefits.
