Platelet Rich Plasma Injections Q & A

What Are Platelet Rich Plasma Injections?

Your blood contains four distinct parts: plasma, platelets, and red and white cells. Platelets work primarily to clot your blood after an injury, but what many people don't know is that platelets are also rich with proteins essential to the healing process. Think of Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, as plasma that's been supercharged with these healing platelets. When you suffer from chronic pain or injuries, using Platelet Rich Plasma can help speed up your healing process, returning you to full health.

How Does Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment Work?

The process of using PRP to promote healing is fairly simple. First, an amount of blood is drawn from your body, and the platelets in that blood will be separated and enriched. Next, and most importantly, the now enriched platelets will be re-introduced into your system. Typically, the Platelet Rich Plasma will be injected directly into an injured area of your body. Using this treatment method will help to speed up the healing process and return you to your normal life.

What Conditions Can It Be Used For?

PRP treatment can be used to address a number of issues, but it is particularly useful in treating chronic injuries. For example, PRP can be used to address recurring tendon injuries, speed up healing after surgery, and relieve pain from conditions like arthritis. If you have a persisting condition, then Platelet Rich Plasma might be the right course of treatment for you.

Are There Any Secondary Risks from Platelet Rich Plasma?

Compared to other treatments for chronic conditions, the risks of PRP treatment are minimal. You may experience slight pain around the injection site, but that is to be expected. If you are interested in Platelet Rich Plasma treatment in Beverly Hills, make sure to bring your questions to the Westside Pain Specialists where Dr. James Nassiri can advise whether or not PRP is right for you.
