PRP or Platelet-Rich Plasma therapies are a way to treat chronic or temporary pain and injuries.
- You’ve tried pain relievers, but the results are temporary or you’ve experienced side effects.

So, what is PRP?
PRP is injections of a patient’s own platelets to trigger the healing process. There are different types of cells including red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets in everyone’s blood. The platelets are healing cells that clot and promote your body’s healing.
The PRP Process
- The PRP therapy process begins with blood draw from the patient.
- The blood is then rotated, which separates out healing-rich platelets.
- Those platelets are then injected into the patient’s injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and/or joints. In some cases, Dr. Allen will use ultrasound technology to target very specific injuries.
Why choose PRP?
By injecting the patient’s own blood cells to trigger the body’s the healing response, PRP leverages the body’s ability to heal itself and help it heal for good.
