Toronto PRP Injections Procedure
At AESM, we are proud of the fact that each and every one of our sports injury treatments is thorough and complete. Of course that includes these injections. As a precaution and a way to get an accurate diagnosis, we always use proper imaging techniques.
At the beginning of the procedure blood is drawn from the patient’s body into a syringe. That blood is processed and the platelet-rich plasma is them prepared for injection.
After the injection
To maximize the effectiveness of this particular treatment, there are several follow-up procedures patients should carry out. The joint that received the injection might need to be immobilized. The patient might need to wear a brace or use crutches to keep the affected joint stable.
A cold or warm compress applied to the injection site can help to keep swelling down. Remember that here at AESM, we are always available to answer any and all of your questions about Toronto PRP injections for sports injuries. Why not get in touch with us today?
