Johns Hopkins Medicine on PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

PRP is widely used for from sports injuries to hair loss. The treatment uses a patient’s own blood cells to speed up the healing.

Johns Hopkins Medicine on PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

What is platelet-rich plasma?

Clinicians take a blood sample from the patient and place it into a device, called a centrifuge, which rapidly spins the sample, separating the other components of the blood from the platelets, and concentrating them within the plasma.
Platelets are well-known for their clotting abilities, but they also contain growth factors that can trigger cell reproduction and stimulate tissue regeneration or healing in the treated area.

What is the PRP Healing Mechanism?

The mechanism behind PRP injections is not completely understood. Studies show that the increased concentration of growth factors in platelet-rich plasma may stimulate or speed up the healing process, shortening healing time for injuries, decreasing pain, and even encouraging hair growth.

What is PRP treatment used for?

  1. Tendon, Ligament, Muscle and Joint Injuries/Sports Injuries: PRP injections may be able to treat a range of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. For example, chronic tendon injuries such as tennis elbow or jumper’s knee can often take a long time to heal, so adding PRP shots to a treatment regimen can help to stimulate the healing process, decrease pain, and enable a sooner return to activities.
  2. Post-surgical Healing: Post-surgical PRP injections have expanded to help heal muscles, tendons, and ligaments, as procedures on these tissues have notoriously long recovery times.
  3. Osteoarthritis: Early studies indicate that PRP injections may help treat osteoarthritis pain and stiffness by modulating the joint environment and reducing inflammation, but research is growing.
  4. Hair Loss: PRP injections can be effective in treating male pattern baldness, both in preventing hair loss and promoting new hair growth. PRP can also aid in the stimulation of hair growth after hair transplants.
  5. Skin Rejuvenation: PRP injections are sometimes used as an anti-aging treatment, but there is little evidence to show that PRP reduces wrinkles and other signs of aging.
  6. Men’s Shot: PRP injection in the male organ helps improve basculation and helps to make the organ firmer and larger.

PRP Therapy Risks and Side Effects

A PRP injection is a low-risk procedure and does not usually cause major side effects. The procedure involves a blood draw, so you should make sure you are very hydrated and have eaten before receiving the procedure. Less common risks of PRP injections include:

  • Bleeding, tissue damage, infection, nerve injuries

If you are considering PRP injections, be sure to talk with your health care provider about all the benefits and risks.

* The equipment used to produce PRP and the injections themselves have been cleared by the FDA. Since PRP is a substance derived from one’s own blood, it is not considered a drug. FDA clearance means that doctors can prescribe and administer PRP if they believe it’s in the best interest of the patient.

“I had injections into my left shoulder and left knee and felt improvement almost immediately. I thought, well this can’t be real, but it was, from the x-ray, I don’t need knee replacement anymore. I can walk upstairs, I can get on the floor with my grandkids, and I just feel better!”

Terri C., Shoulder & Knee Pain Relief
“On August 18, 2018, I had the Intravenous and Intranasal stem cell procedure. It is now October 18, and I can tell you that my results have been amazing: my back pain is 50% better, it only takes me 20 minutes (used to be 2-3 hours) to fall asleep now, I am able to walk most days with minimal pain, 50% more energy, 70% better with Erectile Function. With the lifestyle changes I have learned from weMED, I have been able to lose over 20lbs.”
Jace T., Back Pain, Neuropathy, and Erectile Dysfunction

“I have found Dr. You to be a responsible, caring, dedicated medical professional who is diligent in his pursuit of his patients’ well being and developing more collegial relations between western and eastern medical disciplines. He is in the forefront of helping to educate the community of western physicians.”

William Riley, MD, Neurologist

“What a delight it is to watch my patients improve under the skillful care of Drs. You and Ma. When what I have to offer through Western medicine holds considerable risk, both my patients and I are grateful for the non-invasive alternatives of acupuncture and herbal medicine.”

Margit Winstrom, MD, Family Practitioner

“Dr. Yu cured me from 100% debilitating pain to 100% pain free.”

Jill Barris, Google Reviews

“Couldn’t recommend a better place. Accupuncture can seem kind of daunting at first, but I couldn’t have felt more comfortable at weMED. The people there are so nice and the atmosphere is very clean and relaxing. Great bedside table manner! I was able to get relief from some of my smaller problems like a headache one day when I went in and also some of my larger problems regarding stomach issues and anxiety. Everyone is very credible and I would trust any of the doctors in the office. Also, their reception desk is extremely responsive in a good way and you almost never have to talk to an answering machine. A must go for anyone looking for relief!”

Claire D., Yelp Reviews

“Definitely Recommend Dr You , Dr Ma, and other Oriental medical Medicine Practitioners here. Dr You have treated so many patients We referred to him with miracle result, saved so many people’s surgery and big money with his small tiny needles by doing acupuncture.
Our therapists use their fingers to do acupressure massage to help many people with their pain management, but fingers could not work as good as the needles, (those small tiny needles are not painful at all, because it is inserted in the acupuncture points in your body), for the benefit of the acupuncture, please google it, for the Master of Acupuncture, you can come to this clinic.”
