what is PRP for Joint Therapy?

Our skilled physicians can harness the rejuvenating power of your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for healing. The process involves separating the PRP from your blood and injecting it back into your joints. This can help you recover more quickly after joint replacement surgery or an injury. It may also help people who live with chronic or acute joint pain. When injected into your joints, PRP can improve your body’s healing abilities, reduce inflammation, and enhance your overall quality of life. We encourage you to schedule an appointment at Upstream Medical Care and Aesthetics in Savannah, GA to learn more about PRP and how it can assist with pain management and joint recovery.

What to Expect from PRP for Joint Therapy

After a consultation and exam, we will draw a small amount of blood from your arm and place it into a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from it. Once the PRP is ready, we'll use a syringe to inject it into the joint causing you pain. This process can take anywhere from 45 – 90 minutes, depending on the number of joints you're receiving treatment for. Follow-up treatments may be necessary to maintain the pain-relieving benefits of the injections.

After your session, you may have some mild bruising and sensitivity near the injection sites. We will give you a detailed list of post-care instructions to help you recover. We usually recommend using cold compresses when needed and avoiding the use of anti-inflammatory medication. For joint injections in the knee, ankle, elbow, or shoulder, patients can (on average) maintain 40 – 50% of their normal activity level for the first 4 – 5 weeks and are able to return to full activity by week six. We'll make sure you feel comfortable with the recovery process and answer any questions you might have before you leave.

Dr. Portzer and his staff are a delight to deal with. They are knowledgeable and kind throughout every step of the appointment. I recommend them whenever I have the opportunity.
