What is a PRP injection?

Platelets, a part of your blood, contain growth factors — proteins that enable healing and tissue repair. PRP injections are a kind of regenerative medicine that uses concentrated platelets to ease pain and speed up healing.

PRP treats tissue damage related to aging, sports injuries, and wear and tear. In many cases, PRP injections allow you to recover without surgery because it encourages tissue repair far faster and more efficiently than it would otherwise occur.

When might I need a Synvisc, Cortisone or PRP injection?

You might need a Synvisc, Cortisone, or PRP injection if you have:

  • Spine injuries and chronic conditions
  • Joint pain
  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Shoulder rotator cuff tear 
  • Knee meniscus tear
  • Bursitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Muscle injuries

These injections are beneficial in the parts of your body that tend to heal slowly. For example, ligaments and tendons don’t have a rich natural blood supply, so sprains and strains in those tissues can take a long time to heal on their own. These injections overcome this natural obstacle to speed up healing.
