There is a very small risk of an allergic reaction from numbing medicine used in the procedure. There’s also a very low risk of infection since the blood is being removed from the body, processed and reinjected.
Another expected very small risk of PRP is initial pain for the first 48 to 72 hours from the procedure. This is a result of the growth factors and inflammatory mediators in the PRP beginning to work, and this often leads to some aching in the treatment region for the first 2 to 3 days. Then the benefits start to kick in and pain relief is usually experienced.
Treatment with platelet rich plasma for tendon injury, inflammatory conditions, bursitis, ligament injury and arthritis is very exciting and is on the cutting edge of regenerative medicine.
