The Platelet Rich Plasma Process Regenerative Medicine at Michigan Pain Consultants

Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet-rich plasma therapy or PRP, is an advanced treatment option that uses the patient's own blood components to stimulate the body's natural healing capabilities. Let's take a quick tour through the process of a platelet rich plasma procedure at Michigan Pain Consultants.

Collecting Blood

The first step in a platelet rich plasma procedure is to draw blood from the patient. Typically 30-150 ml of blood is drawn from the patients arm.

The Filter

Once the draw is complete, the blood is then carefully placed into a specialized filter and prepared for the centrifuge process.

The Centrifuge

The filter containing the patients blood is then placed in a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins at a high rate of speed for approximately fifteen minutes to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood components.

The PRP Solution

The result is a highly concentrated platelet rich solution that contains up to eight times more growth factors than the body's normal response to injury or damage.

Apply PRP

Under the use of guided X-ray, a physician will inject the concentrated PRP solution directly into the site of damage or injury, stimulating advanced healing and pain relief.
