PRP (Platelet-rich plasma) at The Cooden Medical Group

Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a form of regenerative medicine which uses factors in your own blood in order to amplify and accelerate the growth in your tissue. In doing so, providing you a faster recovery and relief.

PRP Injections can be used to treat:

  • Joint pain resulting from inflammation after an acute injury
  • Chronic Degenerative Joint Disease
  • Ligament and muscle injuries
  • Tendonitis, e.g. tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow
  • Early partial tendon tears
  • Instability and pain in various joints
  • Injuries throughout the body, including in the knee, shoulder, elbow, and other joints
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Chronic pain conditions
  • Sprains and strains

How does PRP treatment work?

The doctor will generally draw blood from the arm. The platelet-rich plasma is then separated in the blood, which a doctor injects directly into the area in need of treatment.

Occasionally an ultrasound machine will be used to ensure the specific area is treated with as much precision as possible.
