How to get rid of joint and tendon pain with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Dr. Rik Patel, Regenerative Spine & Sports Medicine Specialist & Body Health Lecturer from, explains how Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) can help reduce joint and tendon pain by injecting concentrated blood directly into joints or tendons where the pain is experienced to promote the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP can help speed up the process of recovery whereas injections such as cortisone, only mask the problem.

Platelet-rich plasma includes plasma (liquid portion of blood) and platelets (a type of blood cell that plays a role in healing throughout the body). Platelet-rich plasma contains more platelets than normal. Platelets trigger cell reproduction and stimulate tissue regeneration for healing.

I was still experiencing knee pain after surgery. One platelet rich plasma injection with doctor Rik and I was pain free and running again. I couldn’t believe it.
