Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy for sports injuries

PRP therapy is an autologous treatment for sports injuries. It has the potential to accelerate physiological healing processes in damaged tissue and relieve pain. PRP therapy is increasingly being used by athletes to recover from injury safely and quickly.

How does PRP work?

PRP contains a high concentration of growth factors. When injected into the site of injury, the growth factors in PRP trigger cell reproduction and stimulate tissue regeneration, accelerating and enhancing the healing process.

 

PRP injections hold better results and last much longer compared to conventional treatments such as cortisone injections. While the effects of cortisone are rapid, they are often followed by a decline in condition. The effects of PRP are accumulative and show greater long-term improvement, leading to less injury recurrence.

What does the process of PRP involve?

A sample of your blood is taken, similar to a standard blood test. Next, the blood is spun in a centrifuge to isolate the plasma component. The PRP is extracted, activated under a light, and injected into the site of injury. Local anaesthetic is injected prior to PRP injections to minimise discomfort.

What sports injuries can PRP treat?

Many athletes visit our doctors to receive treatment for sports injuries sustained during training or competition. Common injuries include rotator cuff tears, achilles tendon ruptures, lateral epicondylitis and plantar fasciitis.
