Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy in Surprise

PRP Therapy in Surprise AZ

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is part of the regenerative medicine approach used at Array Medical Center. It’s an innovative therapy that boosts your body’s natural healing abilities.


What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy?

PRP is a nonsurgical treatment that uses substances found in your own blood to promote your body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Your blood contains plasma, platelets, red cells, and white cells. PRP therapy focuses on plasma and platelets. The plasma is the liquid part of your blood and is made mostly of water that contains electrolytes (salts) and various proteins.

Platelets secrete substances called growth factors and other proteins that regulate cell division, stimulate tissue regeneration, and encourage healing. For PRP therapy, platelets and plasma are separated from the white and red cells in a blood sample. This concentrated platelet-rich plasma is then delivered to the damaged area via injection.


How Does PRP Work?

It’s believed that platelet-rich plasma can:

  • Slows inflammation
  • Reduces Joint damage due to arthritis or injury
  • Stimulates new cartilage and other soft tissue growth
  • Eases painful friction between bones of the joint by natural lubrication

What Conditions are Treated with PRP?

PRP is effective for a wide variety of musculoskeletal issues, especially when combined with other regenerative treatments.

  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Sprain or Strains
  • Minor muscle, ligament and tendon tears
  • Neuropathy
  • Arthritic joints

How is PRP Therapy Implemented in Surprise?

PRP starts with drawing a small sample of your blood that is then placed in the centrifuge, which spins rapidly and separates the platelets and plasma in your blood from the red and white cells. The PRP is then extracted and injected into the damaged or diseased tissue.

Ultrasound is typically used to guide PRP injections into a joint or other hard-to-define regions so that the injected material is delivered to the correct area. Most patients report only minimal discomfort with the injection, and the site can be numbed first with local anesthetic if you prefer.


Is PRP Safe?

Because the PRP is taken from your own blood supply, the risk of infection or other issues sometimes associated with joint injections is low. Rest assured that the injection process and aftercare are discussed in detail before you undergo PRP therapy to determine if it is right for you. and to help you set your goals and develop a plan best for you and your recovery.


Can PRP Help With Tendonitis?

If anti-inflammatories aren’t relieving your tendonitis, you may want to consider PRP. Tendonitis, which is an inflammation of a tendon, is a common condition that can affect your shoulders, elbows, wrists, or knees from overuse. As a common sports injury, you may know tendonitis better when it’s referred to as swimmer’s shoulder, tennis elbow, or golfer’s elbow.
