What to expect following your procedure?
Following your procedure, take the rest of the day off. Post injection soreness is expected due to the inflammatory response induced by the PRP treatment. The inflammatory response induced by PRP stimulates the healing of the injured tissue. Swelling and moderate pain is to be expected for the first several days. It is best to avoid significant activity involving the treated area for one week.
How often are the treatments recommended?
One to three treatments are typically recommended depending on the severity of the injury and how long ago the injury was incurred. A follow up appointment should be made 4-6 weeks following the procedure to evaluate if further treatment will benefit in further healing and symptom relief.
Is PRP covered by insurance?
Some portions of the evaluation and/or treatment may be covered. Each case is unique. Give us a call to discuss..
Who is not a candidate for PRP therapy?
PRP therapy is not recommended for those with severe anemia, low platelet counts, abnormal platelet function disorders, and systemic infections, those with active cancers or those who are on blood thinners with a history of blood clots or atrial fibrillation.
