Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an established and growing treatment for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. Commonly treated disorders include back pain, joint pain, knee pain, osteoarthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, muscle strains, and sprains. Many musculoskeletal specialists are moving PRP to the initial treatment of these conditions due to its pain relief benefits, the potential for tissue healing, and low risk of side effects. One of the most common questions we hear about this exciting new treatment is, “How much does a PRP injection cost?” Let’s explore that topic together.
About Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is categorized as a regenerative medicine therapy. This therapy first began with widespread use in athletes 10-15 years ago. The injection is intended to treat a variety of arthritic joint and tendon problems. Platelet rich plasma is derived from each patient’s blood. A sample of blood is drawn when a patient arrives at the clinic. This sample is centrifuged or spun down so that the different layers are separated. The platelet layer is identified and isolated. This platelet rich layer is rich with growth factors that accelerate the body’s healing process. The PRP is typically injected near or in the area of degeneration.
While the Excel Pain and Spine providers are excited to introduce this treatment modality into our list of provided pain and injury solutions to help patients get the relief they need, PRP is not indicated for every type of pain. Schedule your appointment today to discuss your options.
So, What Does PRP Cost?
Platelet rich plasma, unfortunately, is not covered by most insurances or Medicare. It’s no secret that the health care system in the US is dysfunctional, and this is a perfect example of this. Coverage by insurance for any new procedure or medication can take years or decades before coverage is adopted. For this reason, PRP requires self-payment in most stations.
Excel Pain and Spine has compared the cost, results, and quality associated with many PRP devices and systems before deciding on a price. The providers at Excel Pain and Spine demand only the best in quality and consistency when providing any treatment. This is imperative when it comes to PRP as there are many factors and devices to consider. After doing our diligence, Excel Pain and Spine is proud to offer the Juvenix PRP system.
Some clinics are charging thousands of dollars for each PRP treatment. Excel Pain and Spine offers a price of $750 per treatment. Each patient responds differently, and the number or frequency of treatments may vary.
