PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a new treatment modality that stimulates your body’s innate healing properties, essentially making your body heal itself. The medical provider draws a small sample of your blood, purifies and isolates the PRP, and injects it into the targeted areas, such as the damaged muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints. Brand Surgical Institute provides personalized PRP injections to stimulate natural healing and alleviate chronic pain, helping you lead a pain-free life without relying on opioids or medications.

How do PRP injections alleviate pain?
The human blood consists of red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma, and platelets. The plasma allows the platelets and blood cells to circulate through your veins and arteries to purify your body. It also protects your body from blood disorders, infections, vascular problems, and other blood-related conditions. The platelets contain growth factors, components responsible for the bulk of your body’s innate healing properties, such as blood clot formation and cellular regeneration.
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is essentially a serum with a high concentration of platelets and growth factors. The growth factors, as mentioned previously, have the potential to heal wounds, stimulate blood clot formation, and promote cellular regeneration. During PRP therapy, the medical provider isolates and purifies the PRP serum and injects it into the damaged muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints. The growth factors accelerate your body’s innate healing properties to correct the injuries, thus alleviating chronic pain.
Benefits of PRP injections:
- Minimally invasive treatment — no incisions or scarring
- Autologous treatment — based on components drawn from your body
- Stimulates natural healing and cellular regeneration
- Reduces the symptoms of chronic pain
- No harsh side effects or complications
- No post-treatment downtime — resume daily activities immediately
Your PRP injections experience at BSI
Brand Surgical Institute performs PRP therapy after a thorough evaluation. Our medical providers administer numerous imaging tests to visualize the internal structures of your anatomy and identify the damaged tissues. After diagnosing the root cause of chronic pain, the medical provider curates a personalized treatment plan, which may include PRP injections. Since PRP injections don’t provide instant results, your treatment plan may also include epidural injections, nerve blocks, facet joint injections, physical therapy, etc.
During PRP therapy, the medical provider draws a small sample of your blood from your arm via a syringe. The blood sample is carefully spun in a centrifuge to isolate the golden-colored PRP serum, which rises to the top of the vial. The medical provider draws the PRP serum into another syringe. The targeted area on your body is cleansed, following which the medical provider administers local anesthesia for comfort. The PRP injection is delivered into the targeted tissues using ultrafine needles.
