Musculoskeletal PRP

What is PRP?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a regenerative therapy that utilizes the healing properties found in a patient’s own blood. The treatment involves concentrating platelets, growth factors, and other bioactive substances to promote tissue repair and regeneration. 

Applications of PRP in Musculo-Skeletal Health

PRP is commonly used to address various musculo-skeletal conditions, including:

How PRP is Extracted and Processed


Schedule a consultation with your doctor to assess your specific musculo-skeletal concerns and determine if PRP is the right option for you. A prescription is required.

Blood Collection

A small amount of your blood is drawn using a sterile technique, similar to a standard blood test.


The collected blood is processed in our state-of-the-art PRP machine, which separates and concentrates the platelet-rich plasma.

PRP Injection

The concentrated PRP is then skillfully injected into the targeted area, guided by advanced imaging techniques for precision.

Advantages of PRP Over Cortisone Shots

Regenerative Properties

PRP stimulates natural healing and tissue regeneration.

Long-Term Relief

While cortisone shots may offer temporary relief, PRP provides longer-lasting results by addressing the root cause of the issue.

Reduced Side Effects

PRP uses the patient's own blood, minimizing the risk of adverse reactions or allergies associated with cortisone shots.

PRP Therapy: Contraindications

While Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a versatile and effective treatment, certain contraindications may affect its suitability for some individuals. It’s crucial to consult with our medical professionals at RADIOMEDIC to assess your eligibility for PRP therapy. Here is a list of common contraindications:

Blood Disorders

Individuals with hematologic disorders, such as hemophilia or thrombocytopenia, may be at an increased risk of bleeding complications during or after PRP therapy.

Active Infections

PRP involves injecting a concentrated solution derived from the patient's blood. Active infections at the injection site or systemic infections may increase the risk of complications.


Patients with active cancer or a history of certain cancers may not be suitable candidates for PRP therapy. Consultation with an oncologist is recommended.

Chronic Liver Disease

Conditions such as cirrhosis may affect the body's ability to heal and may increase the risk of complications.

Severe Systemic Diseases

Individuals with severe systemic diseases, such as uncontrolled diabetes or autoimmune disorders, may experience challenges in the healing process.

Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

Due to the limited research on the safety of PRP during pregnancy and breastfeeding, it is generally advisable to avoid PRP therapy during these periods.

Allergies to Blood Components

Patients with allergies to components found in blood or blood products may experience adverse reactions to PRP therapy.

Anticoagulant Medications

Individuals taking anticoagulant medications or blood-thinning drugs may need to adjust their medication regimen before undergoing PRP therapy.

Systemic Steroid Use

Chronic or systemic steroid use may interfere with the regenerative properties of PRP and may impact the overall effectiveness of the treatment.

Local Infections at the Treatment Site

Active infections at the site where PRP is to be administered may increase the risk of spreading the infection or interfere with the healing process.

Uncontrolled Hypertension

Patients with uncontrolled hypertension may need to manage their blood pressure before considering PRP therapy.

It is essential to disclose your complete medical history, including current medications and any underlying health conditions, to ensure a thorough assessment of your eligibility for PRP therapy. We will make sure that you do not have any contraindications using our PRP questionnaire prior to your procedure.

What to expect the day of your procedure


You will first be greeted, registered and redirected to the changing rooms with instructions specific to your case.


The nurse or the technologist will review with you the pre-filled questionnaire (completed and submitted by email prior to your procedure date).


Your blood will be drawn just like a standard blood test.


As your PRP is being extracted, a radiologist will perform a diagnostic ultrasound in order to reassess your condition prior to the injection.


Once the PRP sample is available, the radiologist will inject it precisely in the target area using a small needle under ultrasound guidance to spread the PRP exactly where the injury is.


And that’s it! You will be handed some basic post-procedure care instructions and you’ll be on your way out if you are feeling good.


For those that tend to experience vagal episodes with needles, we will keep you with us until you feel energetic enough to be on your way.

COST: 850$ per injection (not covered by RAMQ)
