PRP Prolotherapy Explained

PRP Prolotherapy is sometimes also called simply as PRP shots. PRP stands for Platelets Rich Plasma. PRP is an OrthoBiologics solution used as a prolife rant in Regenerative Injection Therapy (Prolotherapy). It has recently gained substantial popularity in the media as of late, thanks to high profile athletes like late Kobe Bryant, Hines Ward,

Tiger Woods, and many other professional athletes who have recently received non-surgical or post-surgical treatment for their sports injuries with PRP injections. It offers exciting new possibilities to promote and accelerate healing in both acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries and arthritis.


A simple blood draw procedure is performed as done for any routine blood check up. Then spin the blood in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets and plasma proteins for your injections.
Platelets have significant healing properties and are the basic framework of cells that damaged tissues use to regenerate around.
Platelets contains over 1500 growth and healing factors and plasma contains anti-inflammatory proteins that are documented to promote and accelerate healing and repair of tissue.

Pain Relief and Improved Function-
Platelets release bioactive proteins that enhance tissue regeneration and healing. This leads to better outcomes and a faster healing time for patients, with none of the downtime associated with surgery. As an effective pain relief treatment and promoter of faster healing, PRP often improves the function of the injured area beyond what the patient thought possible. It also may eliminate the need for surgery and prolonged recovery.

Outpatient Procedure-
PRP injections are performed in a comfortable office setting. Since PRP injections are a non-surgical treatment option, procedures can take as little as 30 minutes.

Decreased Risk Vs Surgery-
Since PRP injections are a conservative approach and no incisions are required, bleeding, infections, and post-procedure complications are extremely rare–especially compared to surgery. The procedure is safe for all age groups, genders, and levels of activity. It is also safe for patients with interfering medical conditions.

Cost Effective-
Compared to a typical surgery for an orthopedic injury, a PRP injection procedure at Beyond Biologics™ offers patients significant savings. For one thing, patients are spared the hidden costs of facility fees and anesthesia. Additionally, since PRP is a non-surgical treatment with very little risk of complication, there is no need for patients to rack up fees by staying overnight in a hospital.

Natural Healing-
PRP injections promote tissue repair by harnessing the body’s natural healing process. Nothing synthetic is added to the body, merely the patient’s own platelet cells. These platelets, once activated, release growth factors several of which have been identified in the body’s own healing cascade. This technology simply takes advantage of the body’s own mechanism for healing by capturing it and focusing it precisely where it’s needed most.

Following the injection, patients may experience slight discomfort in the area of the injection that can last for a few days or up to a week. Although it can seem like the injury actually feels worse than it did before the treatment, it is important to remember that there is a good reason for that— the injection triggered an inflammatory response that is quite normal and is essential for the healing process.
Once the patient returns home, we generally suggests using Acetaminophen or a prescription pain reliever. Ibuprofen or other NSAIDs including Motrin or Advil are not advised, as these are “anti-inflammatory” and may interfere with the healing response. We will recommend avoiding heavy or repetitive physical activity with the treated body part for up to a week to allow the healing to occur.
Most patients are able to return to work or continue on with their day following the procedure. Some patients notice improvement by 2 to 6 weeks after the PRP treatment. However, there are factors that can affect the treatment’s efficacy such as the type and site of injury or pain. Most chronic tendon injuries that have failed to respond to any other type of traditional treatment may take a number of weeks to heal, while PRP injections into joints and acute muscle injuries may show improvement sooner.
