Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

The orthopedic center at Canadian Specialist Hospital offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections to promote healing.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy refers to a cutting-edge non-operative treatment method that serves as an excellent alternative to normal injections. Unlike normal injections, PRP Therapy is persistent, promising long-lasting effects by promoting natural healing for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions.

PRP takes advantage of your blood’s natural healing properties to repair damaged cartilage, tendons, ligaments, muscle and bone. It can reduce pain, improve joint function and help you return quickly to normal activities.

PRP Injections are effective in many areas of the body, limbs and joints such as the shoulder, knee, hip, back and spine, leg, foot, arm, elbow, toes, fingers, hand, thumb and neck.

PRP may avoid patients having to have surgical intervention for certain conditions if these are treated early enough

What conditions are treated by PRP therapy?

  • Osteoarthritis (recommended for all affected joints e.g. hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, ankle)
  • Joint pain (e.g. hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, ankle)
  • Tendon injuries (Torn Achilles)
  • Tendonitis
  • Ligament injuries
  • Muscle sprains
  • Tennis elbow
  • Soft tissue sports injuries (muscles, tendons and ligaments)

What happens during the PRP Therapy procedure?

During or following your initial consultation:
  • Blood is drawn from a vein in the arm and put through a separation process there and then to extract the concentration of platelets
  • The platelets are then injected into the affected site after a few minutes, either with or without ultrasound guidance
  • The process takes about 30 minutes and is done in an outpatient setting
