PRP stimulates stem cells and is a natural anti-inflammatory
Some patients have more than one joint or bursa or tendon affected at any one time. Often arthritis coexists with tendonitis and bursitis. This means that more than one body part may need to be treated with PRP at the same sitting. As an example with knee arthritis both knees may be affected or, pain may also originate from surrounding ligaments and tendons. PRP injection may be needed for the joints in both knees and in addition to the soft tissues eg ligaments and tendons. PRP injections into different body parts does not always require revisits. In some instances it can be safely performed in one visit. It also means that there is a fixed cost component irresepective of the number of areas injected. This may result in a reduction in total costs. 
For instance, if both knee joints are injected with PRP on the same day, the cost does not double. Please note that it may not always be  possible to treat more than one body part due to medical safety reasons. But where possible we will endeavour to reduce costs of multiple procedures. Please enquire for more details or send us an email.
