FDA-Approved Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections in Mechanicsburg, PA to Revitalize and Restore Your Well-Being
What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an emerging therapeutic procedure in medicine and rehabilitation for the treatment of both acute and chronic soft tissue injuries. It involves collecting blood from the patient’s arm, separating the platelets via centrifuge and injecting it back into the patient’s injured tissue area to augment the body’s natural healing response.
Emerging cellular therapies that utilize platelet-rich plasma (PRP) have the potential to play a primary role in regenerative medicine treatment. There is a global unmet need for tissue repair strategies to treat musculoskeletal (MSK), osteoarthritis (OA), and patients with chronic complex wounds. PRP is a non-surgical therapy that is based on the fact that platelet growth factors (PGFs) enhances the three phases of wound healing and repair cascade (inflammation, proliferation, remodeling).
Get the Best Results
We have found that doing multiple injections over the course of four to eight weeks yields the best results. A series of three injections will result in the best outcome.

What is PRP Treatment Used For?
PRP is a Non-surgical Modality that May Prevent the Need for Surgery
PRP injections are used for a range of conditions,* from musculoskeletal pain and injuries such as torn rotator cuff, knee osteoarthritis, meniscus tears, osteoarthritis as well as knee, shoulder and hip degeneration.
Tendon, Ligament, Muscle and Joint Injuries
PRP injections may be able to treat a range of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. For example, chronic tendon injuries such as soft tissue old joints including wrist-hand, ankle-foot, shoulder and hips, so adding PRP shots to a treatment regimen can help to stimulate the healing process, decrease pain and enable a return to activities sooner.
Clinicians first used PRP to accelerate healing after jaw or plastic surgeries. Now, post-surgical PRP injections have expanded to help heal muscles, tendons and ligaments, as procedures on these tissues have notoriously long recovery times.
Early studies indicate that PRP injections may help treat osteoarthritis pain and stiffness by modulating the joint environment and reducing inflammation, but research is growing.
What Are PRP Growth Factors?
There are some special growth factors found in platelets (PRP growth factors) that are beneficial for regeneration of tissue, particularly skin. There are about 30 known growth factors in platelets, but the main four that we take advantage of are:
What You Need to Know
Key Points to Remember
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) comes from a patient’s own blood.
- PRP is a concentrated source of growth factors and cellular signaling factors that play a significant role in the biology of healing.
- Multiple science studies show that PRP treatment may improve healing in many tissues.
- Clinical studies in humans show the effectiveness of PRP treatment.
- Anti-inflammatory medicines should be stopped before and after PRP treatment is given.
- PRP treatment can help support wound healing in trauma and joint injury.
- The results of PRP treatment are most noticeable after several weeks for joint injections. Patients may require additional injections at the direction of their doctor.
- Because PRP uses your own tissue and blood, there is a greater safety margin compared to other regenerative techniques.
- The full benefits of PRP can take up to four weeks. Our physician will work with you directly on a specified treatment schedule to attain the best outcome possible.
The Burick Center Difference
Experience matters. Dr. Siciliano has been performing PRP injections since 2017 with world-class technology and boosts an 85 percent efficiency success rate. This unique regenerative technique is used in conjunction with Prolozone and Ozone therapies to get an enhanced effect through synergistic modalities.
According to pubmed.gov, patients receiving ozone treatment are less likely to experience post-injection pain and are more likely to recover faster when compared to patients receiving PRP treatment alone proving that the synergy between modalities is undoubtedly a differentiator!
Potential Side Effects
Inflammatory response to procedure will vary from person-to-person. Avoid non-steroid anti-inflammatory medications to include aspirin and all anti-inflammatory supplements. Acetaminophen is ok for pain. Some post-injection pain is natural and necessary for the successful outcome of the procedure.
