Finally, one of the newest types of injection is Platelet-Rich plasma or PRP. As the name implies, we use the patient’s own blood to treat a condition. Firstly, we take a blood sample.  Similar to a normal blood test, we draw blood from a vein in the elbow.  Next, we place the blood in a centrifuge. Gradually, the cells separate into two components: serum and cells.  This serum contains platelets. Platelets contain a high number of growth factors. Finally, we remove the serum and platelets from the red cells and inject them into a joint or tendon.  Once again, we use ultrasound to improve accuracy.

What is the evidence for PRP?

Evidence for the effectiveness of PRP exists only for a few common conditions:

How does platelet-rich plasma work?

Platelets are important cells that control clotting. Also, they contain a high concentration of growth factors. These growth factors control inflammation and healing. Injecting platelet-rich plasma into a joint or tendon leads to the release of growth factors improving the local tendon or joint environment. Ultimately, this leads to a lower level of pain and tissue healing. However, there is no evidence that PRP regenerates tissue.
