Adelaide PRP Injections

Platelet Rich Plasma Injections in Adelaide

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection is a non-operative, injectable management option for a number of musculoskeletal problems, including osteoarthritis.  Research is now revealing that PRP is now significantly more superior compared to other injectable options including hyaluronic acid and steroids.[i],[ii],[iii],[iv]  Furthermore, given its autologous nature, PRP has very small risk and adverse reaction profile.  With these facts in mind, PRP has attracted an increasing amount of interest.

For further information about PRP Injections, including How it Works; Suitable Conditions and Administration; How to Make an Appointment to have PRP Injections at our Norwood Clinic, Click Here.
