Dr. Rajaratnam begins with a consultation and thorough exam at the California Wellness Institute to determine if PRP injections are the right treatment for you. If it is, he explains the process and determines the number of injections you’ll need.
Dr. Rajaratnam will start the therapy by drawing a blood sample, which he separates into its various components using a centrifuge. He then may combine your PRP with exosomes to create a serum that’s highly effective in regeneration of your damaged tissue.
Next is the injection. Depending on the location of the injury or illness, you will receive an anesthetic to ensure your comfort during the injection.
Each PRP treatment takes less than an hour, and you may need a series of treatments to achieve the desired results.
The flood of platelets provides your body with an abundance of the growth factors needed for tissue repair, which stimulates and accelerates your own healing response. You may experience some swelling and tenderness as your body’s healing response kicks in. However, within a couple of weeks, you should notice significant improvement. This may include decreased pain and increased mobility.
