PRP Therapy for Hip Arthritis
If you have arthritis in your hip, platelet rich plasma
therapy may help. It uses parts of your own blood to
help your body heal itself. PRP can help your hip
feel better and work better.
Creating the Mix
The process begins with a sample of your blood. It
is spun around in a centrifuge. This separates it into
platelets, plasma, and red and white blood cells.
The platelets are then concentrated and mixed with
some of the plasma. This mixture is called "platelet
The doctor injects this into your damaged tissues.
Your immune system (the system that keeps your
body healthy) reacts quickly. Special white blood
cells called "macrophages" rush in. They take away
damaged cells. They help prep the site for healing.
Then, stem cells and other cells begin to multiply.
Over time, they repair and rebuild damaged tissues.
After the injection, you can go home. You may need
to come back for more injections as you heal.
