PRP Therapy in Wilmington

PRP Therapy (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is a revolutionary procedure that uses components of the body’s own blood cells to relieve pain and promote healing of musculoskeletal conditions (joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments). Platelet-rich plasma is meant to promote healing and is considered a “booster shot” towards recovery.  

With a PRP injection, your body uses those cells, which contain a higher concentration of platelets delivered specifically to the source of pain or injury via ultrasound guidance. Increased levels of growth factors have the potential to improve signaling and recruitment of stem cells for healing.

Platelet-rich plasma therapy accelerates the body’s natural healing process efforts by delivering a higher concentration of platelets through a simple injection. PRP therapy aids in the healing process, and helps decrease pain and inflammation for conditions such as joint pain and stiffness associated with hip and knee osteoarthritis, as well as rotator cuff tears/tendonitis, hip and shoulder labral tears, knee ligament injuries, tennis elbow and joint sprains and muscle strains.  It provides effective pain relief and faster healing, and can eliminate the need for surgery and prolonged recovery. Other conditions PRP Therapy can treat include:

Shoulder:

    • Partial rotator cuff tears
    • Labral tears
    • Bursitis/Tendonitis
    • Osteoarthritis

Hip:

    • Osteoarthritis
    • Labral Tears
    • Bursitis/Tendonitis

Knee

Ankle

  • Ankle pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Tendon injury- Achilles 

Foot

PRP injections are done in our office, and usually take about 30-45 minutes depending on your condition. Blood is drawn from the arm, and then placed into a centrifuge, which separates the platelets and other beneficial growth factors. The platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the injured site under ultrasound guidance.
