What is PRP?

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is a natural, non-surgical treatment that uses a patient's own blood platelets to promote healing in injured areas. Effective for various conditions like musculoskeletal injuries and inflammation, the procedure involves drawing blood, concentrating the platelets, and injecting them into the affected site. Side effects are typically minimal, with some soreness. Post-procedure, it's advised to limit intense activities for 4-6 weeks and engage in physical therapy for best results.

What is PRP?

  • A non-surgical option to help promote healing and to relieve pain. PRP injections help promote healing from damaged tendons, cartilage, muscles, and joint pain from osteoarthritis.
  • The body’s natural response when an individual experiences an injury is to send platelets to the damaged area. Platelets contain growth factors that promote healing and trigger the body’s repair process as well as enlist the help of your stem cells to relieve pain & heal the injury.

What is PRP used for?

  • Inflammation
  • Infections
  • Post-surgical healing
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Tennis or golfer’s elbow
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Knee injuries (ACL, MCL tears)
  • Joint degeneration

Are there any side effects with PRP injections?

  • Mild soreness, bruising at the injection site
  • Because PRP comes from your own body, there is no risk for allergic reaction or transmission of infection

How are PRP injections administered?

  • A small sample of your own blood is drawn in the office.
  • The blood is then placed in a machine called a centrifuge that separates the platelets from the other components of your blood.
  • The doctor injects the platelet portion of the blood into the injured part of the body using ultrasound technology in order to ensure the PRP goes to the area that it will provide the most relief.

Is there any down time with PRP injections?

  • There is a short recovery period with PRP injections. Some patients experience mild pain and soreness after the injection.
  • Individuals may resume daily activity after a few days but it is recommended you avoid any intense physical activity for at least 4-6 weeks after the procedure.
  • Physical therapy is recommended after the injection in order to maximize healing.

Full Stories Of Why
Clients Are Satisfied With Our Treatments

Dr. Turok spent the time to discuss my condition and provided alternative ways to try to treat the condition.  He was very knowledgeable. He and his staff were very friendly.   I would highly recommend this practice. This a follow up to my previous post. Six weeks ago I had PRP treatment for hemifacial spasm and blepharospasm for the left side of my face.  I had been suffering for almost 18 months with this condition. The one treatment gave me 75% improvement with my condition.   I had a second treatment today and hope this is as good as the first. For those who have tried other treatments I highly recommend trying the PRP with Dr. Turok.

I have been recovering from plantar fasciitis and ankle pain for multiple years following multiple basketball injuries and decided to try out Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy a couple of weeks ago. Plantar fasciitis takes a while to recover, so on paper, injecting platelet cells directly into the area will promote healing and speed up this lengthy recovery process so I can get back to my favorite activities as fast as possible. Sure enough, a couple of days after the PRP injection my foot started feeling better. The inflammation has drastically decreased and a lot of pain has gone away. Now, two weeks after the procedure, the foot is still feeling great! Dr. Turok recommends resting the area for 6 weeks after the procedure, so I can only project my injury getting better. Overall, my experience at Connecticut Pain Solutions has been very pleasant. The staff is very friendly and Dr. Turok himself is very knowledgeable and experienced in his practice. The procedure is very quick and painless, so I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to try out new things that might help them during their recovery!

I'm 101 years old and have been in chronic pain in my back and hip for years. I have tried every medication and procedure that has been recommended to me. The only treatment that has given me meaningful relief is the PRP injection provided by Dr. Turok. I am extremely thankful for the relief I am currently experiencing.
