Welcome to Joint PRP

Joint PRP is dedicated to providing exceptional medical treatment, guidance, and care using cutting-edge techniques to patients who are experiencing joint, muscular, and skeletal pain. Our mission is to help relieve joint pain and restore our patient’s health and quality of life. For years, we have set the standard for orthopedic and rheumatologic excellence in California. Whether you need treatment for immediate, work-related, or chronic injuries, we strive to use research and innovation to provide optimal health care until our patients achieve overall better health.

We believe that lasting pain relief does not have to come solely from medications and surgery. Our team employs PRP therapy, which uses platelets acquired from the patient’s own body to enhance the body’s ability to heal itself. We use this treatment option to try and help with pain of the tendons, ligaments, muscles, and other musculoskeletal conditions. 

PRP is the short of Platelet Rich Plasma, a groundbreaking, non-surgical kind of healing treatment. We take a sample of your own blood, separate platelets, and re-inject the serum directly into the abnormal tissue. The concentrated platelets release growth factors try and help support the bodies own ability to heal and improve pain. And we can achieve this without having to use general anesthesia, getting stitches, having to stay at a hospital, undergoing the risks of surgery, or going through a long recovery process. The goal of PRP therapy is to help treat the underlying painful conditions of the joints including the shoulders and knees, not just masking painful symptoms.

The fascinating thing about this treatment is that since it was first used in the 1970s, doctors are still finding new uses for it. For instance, PRP is now being used to help heal issues with vision, infertility, and erectile dysfunction. At Joint PRP, we also offer PRP therapy for face therapy, acne treatment, hair restoration, and treatment for scars and stretch marks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Whether you suffer from arthritis, have taken a fall leading to an injury, or have an aesthetic issue affecting your confidence, PRP can often address your concern. We know you might have many questions about this type of treatment and its effectiveness. We’ve answered some of the most frequently asked questions about PRP, but feel free to reach out to us with more questions.

You might remember learning about platelets in your biology class. When you’re injured, platelets help your blood clot and release growth factors that jump-start the healing process. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is plasma - the liquid portion of whole blood - with a high concentration of platelets. The PRP serum is made from each individual patient’s blood that is harvested from the forearm. The solution is then injected directly into the treatment site to stimulate repair and regeneration, offering the patient quicker healing rates and pain relief.

PRP injections are usually administered under local anesthesia if it’s meant to provide pain relief and tissue healing. Conversely, a topical numbing may be used to lower discomfort if used for correcting skin issues or hair loss. If you’re using PRP treatment for joint and tissue issues, the doctor will use ultrasound imaging in order to carefully place the plasma in the exact location where it can be most effective. For instance, if the PRP treatment is for knee pain, the serum may be placed below the knee cap. But for skin issues and hair loss, the serum might be injected a millimeter into the skin. The procedure usually takes 30 to 45 minutes to complete. When you choose Joint PRP, you can expect your visit to be very comfortable.

After the injections, there may be a temporary increase in pain, bruising, stiffness, and swelling for a few days. Your doctor will give you instructions to follow and prescribe pain medications you can take to manage the pain. Usually, patients need to avoid non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for 1 week before and 4 weeks after the procedure. You’ll be required to avoid strenuous physical activities for 2 weeks, have a nutritious diet, drinks lots of water, and avoid smoking and drinking.

Every patient responds differently. With PRP, you should expect a gradual healing process. Some patients see some improvement by 2-6 weeks after treatment.

Because we’re using your own blood components, the injections are considered safe by most physicians. However, there’s a minimal risk of infection at the injection site.

PRP therapy is a great option for a wide variety of patients with joint pain and aesthetic issues. But patients with abnormal platelet function, severe anemia, active systemic infection, low platelet count, or active cancer are not ideal candidates for PRP. A comprehensive consultation can help us tell whether you’re a candidate for this treatment. Feel free to schedule a consultation with our physician to find out if you’re a candidate.

We obtain PRP by doing a simple blood draw from the patient’s forearm. The blood is then placed in a special test tube to prevent clotting. The test tubes are placed in a centrifugal device that spins that them at high speeds in order to separate the components of your blood into three distinct layers. The upper layer is Platelet Poor Plasma (PPP), the middle layer is PRP, and red blood cells are collected at the bottom. We use aspiration methods to extract the upper layers and then place them into the centrifuge for a second spin to create the pure form of plasma. The concentrated PRP serum settles at the bottom, and then we separate the upper layer of PPP. We have state of the art equipment that enables us to collect the highest concentration of platelets. Once we have the PRP serum, we then add FDA-approved compounds to prevent the PRP serum from clotting and enhance its healing properties.

PRP therapy can help you with a wide range of orthopedic conditions and aesthetic issues. PRP has been shown to be an effective and safe treatment for conditions of the shoulders, knees, ankle, foot, wrist, elbows, hands, hips, ligaments, tendons, and muscle. PRP can also be used in ophthalmology to treat a variety of eye conditions. In dermatology, PRP injections can rejuvenate facial skin, treat acne, reverse signs of aging, and erase various skin flaws, such as age spots, injury and surgical scars, blemishes, stretch marks, and discolorations. In open wounds and surgery, PRP can be used to accelerate healing with minimum possibility of infection.

There’s no direct answer to this question because it mostly depends on the location and chronicity of your problem. However, the most common treatment plan is 1 to 3 injections spread throughout six weeks to three months.

This varies from one person to another. It mostly depends on the underlying disease process and whether there has been a further injury to the area. Based on a person’s progress, it’s possible to predict if and when additional injections will be needed.

PRP may eliminate or delay the need for surgical interventions by treating injured tissue before the condition is irreversible. The treatment also can help accelerate the healing process, allowing a patient to get back to normal activities quicker than with other treatments. There’s also no risk of immune reaction, cross-reactivity, or disease transmission as the PRP is coming from the patients own blood cells.

At the present time, most insurance plans do not include PRP as a covered benefit. This is because most insurance carriers consider PRP as elective and somewhat investigational experimental. With numerous new studies attesting to the efficacy and safety of PRP for a wide range of conditions, efforts are being made to make PRP injections reimbursable through insurance.
