At our Orthopaedic Specialists of Connecticut, we are proud to offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections as a cutting-edge solution for a range of orthopaedic conditions. PRP injections are a highly effective, non-surgical treatment option for those suffering from musculoskeletal pain and injuries.
What are PRP Injections?
PRP injections are a form of regenerative medicine that utilizes a patient's own blood to promote healing and tissue regeneration. A small sample of the patient's blood is taken and then processed to concentrate the platelets, which are rich in growth factors and other healing agents. The concentrated platelets are then injected into the area of the body that is injured or causing pain.
What Conditions Can Be Treated with PRP Injections?
PRP injections can be used to treat a range of Orthopaedic conditions, including:
Osteoarthritis: A degenerative condition causing joint pain and stiffness.
Tendinitis: Inflammation of a tendon causing pain and weakness in the affected area.
