IgniteRx Medical & Fitness offers platelet-rich plasma injection, or PRP injections, in Temecula. PRP treatment is a safe, cost-effective and nonsurgical solution to healing injury and pain. This platelet-rich plasma treatment process works by accelerating the reparation process of damaged tissues.
Using cutting-edge medical technology, PRP treatment utilizes the body's natural healing powers, the growth factors and plasma cells extracted from one's blood, to stimulate regeneration of cells and heal common injuries.
Several high-profile athletes use PRP injections for injury treatment so that they are able to perform at their best without surgeries or other invasive procedures. At IgniteRx Medical & Fitness in Temecula, we offer the most advanced form of PRP treatment to ensure that our patients in Temecula get the results that they desire.

IgniteRx Medical & Fitness' PRP injections for pain and injury in Temecula are performed with ultrasound guided injections.

High-resolution ultrasound allows IgniteRx Medical & Fitness in Temecula to diagnose and treat injuries in live time, with 10 times the precision of an MRI. Also, detailed imaging of musculoskeletal ultrasound is used to educate patients about the diagnosis, and to work together with patients in Temecula to ensure that the decisions we are making are best for them.
The PRP injections in Temecula requires a small sample of the patient's own blood, which is then spun in a centrifuge. The platelets are separated from other components in the blood. Under ultrasound guidance, platelet-rich plasma is injected into the specific location of the injury. Once injected, the platelets become activated during the first six weeks and release growth factors that work to naturally repair damage and attract the critical assistance of stem cells and other proteins that will create new, healthy tissues. Through this process, the PRP treatment significantly strengthens the damaged area and reduces pain.
The entire platelet-rich plasma treatment usually takes less than an hour, although patients receiving PRP injections in multiple joints may require more time.
While the time frame of the healing of tissues varies depending on the patient, platelet-rich plasma injections should begin to regenerate the tissue within two weeks of the injection and continue to heal the area for six months following the treatment.
It is recommended that the patient take three days of downtime following the platelet-rich plasma injection. The patient should wait 14 days before resuming full activity.
