Frequently Asked Questions about Toronto PRP Injections
What is PRP Injection Therapy?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injection therapy is the process of maximizing your blood’s healing properties by using concentrated doses of your body’s healing factors to accelerate the healing of injured joints, muscles, tendons, or ligaments.
We start by extracting a smallvolume of your blood (typically 15 mL to 30 mL).
We then process that sample to extract the Platelets and increase Platelet concentration so that the result is a Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP).
Next, we inject the PRP to the area in need of treatment.
How Does PRP Therapy Work?
PRP therapy works by applying your blood’s Platelets — which enable healing by promoting tissue repair — in strongly concentrated doses to the injured area.
How Long Does PRP Take to Work?
The PRP injection process itself can take as little to 15 to 30 minutes, but the overall time for healing from an injury varies between patients.
However, PRP will accelerate the healing process, which will reduce the time you spend in pain, and in turn, enable you to get back to conditioning and game-ready shape sooner.
How Many PRP Injections are Needed?
This depends on the patient’s exact needs and the nature of their injury. Often only one injection is needed. However, because PRP injections are a non-invasive outpatient treatment, you can do them quickly at a clinic such as Athletic Edge Sports Medicine, not just at hospitals.
