PRP Injection Therapy explained.

A small amount of a patient’s blood is drawn and then spun at high speed. The platelets are concentrated. This liquid is then injected around or near the area of injury being treated. The PRP at this stage contains three to five times the concentration of growth factors compared to normal human blood.
A physician may recommend a single injection or a series of injections based on the injury being treated and a patient’s initial response to the therapy. Your doctor may use ultrasound or an X-ray as a guide to placing the injection.

What happens after a PRP injection?

You may experience mild pain and irritation of the area for several days following the injection. Some doctors may ask patients to limit motion or weight-bearing activity immediately following the injection. The use of a brace, boot or cast may be recommended during the early post-injection course.
Three to seven days after the injection, you may gradually return to normal physical activities. The return to full activity is determined based on response to the therapy and the recommendation of your surgeon.

How Much PRP Injections Cost?

This is a very common question that most patients ask their doctors.  In the State of California, a PRP injection if performed by a certified Doctor or Podiatrist could cost anywhere from $800 to $1400 depending on the type of PRP and severity of the injury.  Communities are becoming flooded with technicians and doctors who are not orthopedic surgeons- offering “PRP” at lower prices. However, the PRP you might buy at a cheaper price from a non-surgeon may not be of the same quality or as effective as PRP treatments provided by a qualified orthopedic surgeon.
