This procedure uses the healing potential of the clients own blood to produce a pain relieving and regenerative effect. Our blood contains platelet cells which contain powerful growth factors and other substances that have a healing and regenerative effect. This effect can bring about pain relief. Our PRP system gives a high concentration of the all important platelets, a low concentration of red blood cells (which is good as these cause inflammation and harm the effect of PRP) and a low concentration of neutrophils (which is good because these cells harm the effect of PRP).

The whole procedure is performed in the outpatient clinic. It is a walk in walk our procedure. First a blood sample is taken under sterile conditions. The sample is spun in a centrifuge to separate the different parts of the blood. The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is withdrawn and then prepared for injection. After some local anaesthetic has been administered the injected is performed under ultrasound guidance into the joint.

Most patients notice an improvement in their pain starting about 2-3 weeks after the injection. Some notice pain relief a bit earlier. After a course of injections the improvement can last for up to 6-9 months or longer in some. Depending on the initial problem, a course of injections can result in complete resolution of the problem.
