Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is an innovative treatment which involves accelerating body’s natural ability to repair itself.


What does it involve?

After an assessment, blood is taken from the patient and prepared in a certain way to obtain plasma, which is activated under a light and injected into the affected area under local anaesthetic.
The process will take around 45 minutes to one hour.
It is recommended to have a series of 3-4 injections with an annual top up (depending on a condition) to obtain best results

How does it work?

The activated plasma contains growth factors which promote cells to multiply and accelerate healing resulting in tissue repair in a natural way
When compared to cortisone injections, PRP shows better and more stable results which stay longer and you can enjoy your usual activities sooner.
The effect of steroid injection is usually rapid but declines very quickly, it reduces inflammation, rather than induces healing.

– Osteoarthritis
– Degenerative knee condition
– Muscle and tendon tears
– Tennis elbow
– Golfer’s elbow
– Bursitis
– Rotator cuff injuries
