Platelet-rich plasma, commonly referred to as PRP, is a drug-free, non-surgical treatment for pain relief that utilizes the healing properties in your own blood.
By helping to trigger your body’s natural healing abilities, PRP can help you avoid more invasive surgical procedures and get the long-lasting results you need.

How Does PRP Therapy Work to Alleviate Pain at the Source?
PRP therapy works with your body’s own natural healing mechanisms to help resolve the underlying issues that are causing you pain. This follows the concept of treating the cause rather than masking the symptoms, which is what often happens with pain medication.
When you have platelet-rich plasma therapy, the treatment starts with a sample of your own blood.
The process consists of:
- Drawing a small sample of blood
- Placing the blood sample in a centrifuge
- The centrifuge spins the sample at high speed to separate the red blood cells from the platelets
- The highly concentrated platelets are injected into your damaged or degraded tissue
- The healing properties of the PRP work with your body’s own natural healing processes to help resolve the root cause of your pain
The fact that PRP is made from your own blood means that the risk of rejection from your tissues is almost non-existent, and the process itself is minimally invasive with little to no downtime.
Most people who come in for PRP therapy can carry on with their day immediately following the appointment.
