PRP Joint Injections Q&A

What are platelet-rich plasma (PRP) joint injections?

PRP joint injections use a concentrated source of plasma from your blood to stimulate new cell growth and natural healing.

The Valencia Medical Center specialists process your blood using advanced, medical-grade concentration units, which can achieve up to nine times the capability of a basic bedside centrifuge.

The specialized PRP kits available at the practice provide more growth factors, cytokines, and other important proteins than many other units on the market, achieving optimal healing support. The kits are class II devices and approved by the FDA.

When injected into painful joints using ultrasound-guided imaging, PRP heals your joints and regenerates cells.

What are PRP joint injections used for?

PRP joint injections help treat the following conditions:

  • Joint Injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Age-related joint wear-and-tear
  • Joint pain
  • Arthritis discomfort
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Warmth
  • Redness
  • Shoulder pain
  • Knee pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Foot and ankle sprains

PRP joint injections also help to treat ligament, tendon, and muscle injuries.

What happens during PRP joint injections?

During PRP joint injections, you rest comfortably. Highly skilled physicians take a sample of your blood and processes it with a highly advanced, medical-grade centrifuge to separate the platelets. 

This process produces gold-colored platelets, which contain growth factors and other important proteins that are 3-5 times more concentrated than bedside centrifuges used by many physicians.The process of producing advanced PRP at Valencia Medical Center is unlike most clinics that offer standard PRP. Distinct from other, our comprehensive interventional orthopedic treatment for musculoskeletal conditions is customizable and produces a highly concentrated platelet (HCP) count, averaging 6-9x higher platelet rich concentration.

Competitors only attain 1.5-3.5x the concentration, considered as platelet-poor plasma (PPP), which is created using a bedside centrifuge and leaves the patients with undesirable results.

Using ultrasound guidance, your provider then re-injects the PRP into painful or injured joint tissues, where it releases growth factors that promote healing. This process allows your specialist to place a needle into an optimal location using utmost precision. Without imaging guidance, freestyle injection techniques result in missing the target location. 

To achieve optimal results, you might need multiple PRP joint injections spaced apart over time.
