What is PRP?

PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, is thought to provide a boost to the body’s own healing ability by taking the patient’s blood and spinning it down in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets, which are then injected back to the afflicted area – whether that be a joint, tendon or ligament.

How Does Prolotherapy Work?

For patients interested in prolotherapy in Raleigh, NC, this is a painless, in-office procedure that takes around 10 minutes. Concentrated dextrose, or sugar water,  is injected directly into the site of pain, stimulating a mild, temporary inflammation. Sensing injury, the body floods the area with healing cells and promoting cellular growth in areas that often respond slowly to healing, such as ligaments and tendons.

Over the course of six to ten weeks, your body’s natural healing response leads to a reduction or even complete elimination of joint, ligament, or tendon pain.

Can you mix them?

Yes, there are some studies that support PRP + prolo.  We tend to take that on a case by case basis.

How Much Does PRP + Prolotherapy Cost?

Our current price for this procedure is $750.00 per treatment.
