Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy

PRP INJECTIONS are a safe and very effective method used to heal damaged bone and soft tissue, and to alleviate chronic pain, using your own blood.  Platelet-Rich Plasma involves taking a small sample of blood and spinning it in a centrifuge to concentrate and separate out the platelets and plasma.  This concentrated sample is then injected into the painful area, where it repairs damage by rebuilding the tissue.

Platelets also contain growth factors and proteins which are very important in the repair and regeneration of tissue.  Therefore, Platelet-Rich Plasma accelerates the healing process and encourages the growth of cells in the injected areas.  Weak ligaments and tendons cause the majority of the pain and damage related to joints.  Platelet-Rich Plasma treatments strengthen these weak tissues, leading to improved joint and muscle functions with significantly less pain.

Talk to your Doctor to see if PRP injection is right for you. If appropriate have your doctor give you a referral. The script should prescibe the following: 

 "Please see patient for "your condition"  and possible PRP injection at your discretion" 


Viscosupplementation Therapy  


Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance found in the synovial (joint) fluid. It acts as a lubricant to enable bones to move smoothly over each other and as a shock absorber for joint loads.  In people with osteoarthritis (OA), this fluid becomes diseased and no longer protects the joint effectively.  The covering on the ends of the bones (cartilage) can also break down, becoming worn and frayed.  These changes may result in inflammation, swelling, tenderness and pain in the joint, which leads to a reduction in mobility.Although OA is most commonly found in the knee joint, it can also affect other joints such as the hip, ankle, shoulder or hands. 

Viscosupplementation is a procedure that can increase the cushioning and lubrication of osteoarthritic synovial, or joint, fluid. The goals of the treatment are to:

  • Restore the properties of shock absorption and lubrication to diseased synovial fluid.
  • Reduce or stop the pain from osteoarthritis of the joint.
  • Improve mobility.

Talk to your Doctor to see if a visco injection is right for you. If appropriate have your doctor give you a referral. The script should prescribe the following: 

 "Please see patient for 'your condition' and possible visco injection at your discretion"
