What is plasma and what are platelets?
Plasma is the liquid portion of whole blood. It is composed largely of water and proteins, and it provides a medium for red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets to circulate through the body.
Platelets, also called thrombocytes, are blood cells that cause blood clots and other necessary growth healing functions.
Platelet activation plays a key role in the body’s natural healing process.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP is a safe autologous product and poses a lower risk of rejection because it is derived from a patient’s own blood. PRP is a concentrated source of growth factors and cellular signaling factors that play a significant role in the biology of healing.
How PRP Works
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. … These activated platelets are then injected directly into your injured or diseased body tissue.

Is PRP Treatment Effective?
Surgeons for the NBA recently published a review article on PRP. They reviewed 148 scientific studies using PRP and concluded “There is support for the use of leukocyte-poor platelet-rich plasma in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis.”
A 2017 peer-reviewed meta-analysis involving over 1,400 patients compared PRP versus other treatment options, such as corticosteroids, for osteoarthritis. Their study not only showed that PRP worked but it “was superior to other intra-articular injections in terms of pain relief and function improvement through 3 to 12 months.”
The safety of PRP has been well-established:
“PRP is a relatively safe preparation that is produced using a sample of the patient’s own blood”
“A single PRP … intra-articular injection is safe”
“The risk of adverse events related to … PRP is very low”
“The possibility of adverse events related to the use of PRP is low”
“PRP injection did not increase the risk of adverse events”
“The preliminary results indicate that treatment with injections of PRP is safe”
“Intra-knee-articular injection of PRP to treat knee articular cartilage degeneration is safe”
“Administration is among the safest, most minimally invasive procedures”
