If so, it may be time to consider Platelet-Rich PLasma (PRP) therapy. 


This all-natural treatment harnesses your body's own healing power…so you can say goodbye to the constant struggle and embrace the hope of life with less pain… much less in most cases. 

Pain coming from arthritis, tendons, joints, and muscles can be a relentless enemy -  causing pain and limiting your ability to enjoy life to the fullest. Simple tasks like climbing stairs or even driving can be challenging.  

But -  there is a newer, innovative, and, all-natural treatment called Platelet Rich Plasma or more simply at PRP. 

If you suffer from arthritis, joint, tendon, or muscle pain and discomfort, the specialists at NYC Pain MD can help.  Led by Dr. JeanJacques Mbabuike and Dr Yevginiy Sorokin with offices in the Elmhurst neighborhood of Queens and the Financial District neighborhood of New York City, the team at NYC Pain MD prides itself on offering the latest, effective treatments.  Among the those they often recommend to patients in pain is PRP. Here, they break down why this therapy is a game-changer. 

What is PRP? 

Platelet-rich plasma is an innovative therapy that harnesses the natural healing power of your blood.  

Your blood consists of several components, including red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Platelets are best known for their role in clotting blood, but they also contain growth factors that facilitate tissue repair. 

 PRP is created by drawing a small amount of blood, typically from your arm. This blood sample is then processed to concentrate the platelets by approximately 8 to 10 x normal thus creating a solution packed with healing potential. 

(As an example, if you were to cut yourself, it is these same platelets that are automatically released to the damaged area that “seal” the wound and create “scar” tissue around the damaged area ) 

 Once the PRP is precisely prepared, it's injected (always with advanced focused imaging) into the affected joint or tissue. The growth factors within the PRP stimulate your body's natural healing processes, promoting tissue regeneration and reducing inflammation.  

In a study published in the National Library of Medicine, researchers found that PRP injections significantly improved pain and function in osteoarthritis patients, with benefits lasting up to a year. Numerous scientific studies have supported the positive effects of platelet-rich plasma.  

How is PRP administered? 

PRP therapy is administered as an outpatient procedure. It's a relatively quick and straightforward process. Here’s what you can expect: 

  • Blood collection: A small amount of blood (usually about 30-60 milliliters) is drawn from your arm, similar to a routine blood test. 
  • PRP preparation: The collected blood is then placed in a centrifuge that spins the blood at high speeds. This separates the platelets and other beneficial components from the rest of the blood. 
  • PRP injection: Once the PRP solution is prepared, it's carefully injected into the affected joint or tissue under focused imaging techniques like ultrasound or fluoroscopy. This ensures precise placement. 
  • Recovery: After the procedure, you'll likely resume your daily activities, although it's recommended to avoid strenuous activities for a few days. 

Your doctor will provide specific post-procedure instructions. 

How does PRP work to ease pain symptoms? 

PRP attacks your pain on multiple levels. Here’s how: 

  • Reducing inflammation: Arthritis pain is often exacerbated by inflammation in the affected joints. PRP's growth factors help reduce this inflammation, providing much-needed relief. 
  • Stimulating tissue repair: PRP's growth factors also promote the regeneration of damaged cartilage and other tissues in the joint. This can slow down the progression of arthritis and improve joint function. 
  • Pain relief: As the damaged tissues heal and inflammation subsides, you'll likely experience a significant reduction in pain and discomfort.
