Is PRP a one-time fix?

Typically, the observed effectiveness of PRP is determined by the severity of the condition. Most patients notice a significant reduction in pain after one treatment; however, patients with bone-on-bone arthritis often require three treatments of PRP before they experience adequate pain relief. Regardless of your level of pain reduction, you may rest assured that the PRP is helping to heal the joint on a cellular level and that it can take time for this healing to manifest in pain relief. Once you achieve satisfactory pain relief, this level can be maintained with repeat injections, usually spaced 6-12 months apart.
