PRP Joint Project


PRP injections are all the rage in top athletes looking to return to the field quickly.  Tendonitis, muscle tears, ligament injuries, torn meniscus, and mild to moderate arthritic joints dysfunction are prime candidates for PRP injections..

The PRP Joint Project typically requires two injections 28 days apart.  Rarely, a third injection is necessary.  Local anesthetic agents are not injected as some resources claim anesthetic agents not only could have toxic effects on chondrocytes but could also influence the activation of platelet by changing the pH of the environment. (1)
