PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, therapy is the most effective treatment for joint, tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries. PRP therapy is very common among professional athletes for the treatment of sports injuries due to the significant reduction in recovery time. While PRP therapy is often used for sports injuries, it has also become popular in the treatment of arthritis and other joint conditions. PRP therapy is commonly used to treat the following:
PRP therapy is currently the most effective treatment for the above conditions. While being very affordable, it also offers the quickest recovery time and is a very simple procedure, only requiring an injection every 3 to 4 weeks. Most patients typically only require 2 to 3 injections.
Platelets are a type of blood cell, along with red blood cells, white blood cells, and plasma. Platelets are typically known for their involvement in hemostasis, leading to the formation of blood clots, but are also responsible for the human body’s general healing process. Platelets help the body naturally heal injuries to joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscles.
By increasing the concentration of platelets in an injured area, the body can more quickly and effectively repair the injury. PRP therapy is the process of increasing the concentration of platelets to promote a quick and effective recovery and promote bone repair and regeneration naturally. PRP therapy also has many additional benefits.

The “prolo” in prolotherapy is short for proliferation. Proliferation means to grow or multiply by rapidly producing new tissue, parts, cells, and that is just what it does.
By injecting a solution into a location on the body where connected tissue has been weakened or damaged for many years of use, prolotherapy causes new connective tissue to grow. This process works because the solution itself is a kind of natural irritant and stimulates the body’s natural biological responses to trigger healing. In this regard, one even might say it is similar to getting a flu shot to produce antibodies to fight the flu.
It works using the same general principle, by helping the body to heal itself. Prolotherapy takes more than one treatment to see results. Typically prolotherapy treatments are provided every three to six weeks, with treatments becoming less frequent as the treatments begin to produce results.
Examples of problems that prolotherapy can help with include
In other words, if it is a joint problem where increased ligament growth could provide a solution, then prolotherapy might provide an excellent solution for you.
