Intra-articular platelet-rich plasma infiltration to relieve joint pain

30 de May de 2023

Intra-articular infiltration of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an innovative and regenerative therapy that helps relieve pain and contributes to tissue recovery in the joints.

What is intra-articular infiltration of platelet-rich plasma?

Intra-articular infiltration of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a minimally invasive procedure that uses components of the patient’s own blood plasma to promote tissue regeneration and relieve joint pain. PRP is obtained from a sample of the patient’s blood, which is processed in a special device to separate and concentrate the platelets and other growth factors present in the plasma.

In which cases is intra-articular PRP infiltration applied?

Intra-articular infiltration of PRP can be useful in different situations, such as:

  • Joint pain due to degenerative diseases, such as osteoarthritis or chronic tendinitis.
  • Sports injuries to joints, such as torn ligaments or meniscus.
  • Postoperative pain after joint surgery.
  • Rehabilitation and recovery of joint function.


How is intra-articular PRP infiltration performed?

The procedure is performed in our clinic on an outpatient basis and under strict aseptic measures. The medical specialist will draw a blood sample from the patient and process it to obtain the PRP. Then, using ultrasound guidance techniques, PRP is injected directly into the affected joint. The procedure is quick and usually takes less than an hour.
