How Does Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy Work?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is created from your own healthy blood using centrifuge technology. When we spin blood at a certain speed, it separates into different parts. We can extract just the platelets and other proteins we need to use. This creates a treatment five to ten times more concentrated in healing factors than your blood. We inject the PRP serum near where you need pain relief or healing.
It’s important to note that because PRP injections are created from your own blood, there’s no risk that your body will reject the treatment or have an allergic response to it. We take substances your body naturally creates for healing and inject a higher dose of them where and when you need them most. The result is immediate: all-natural relief that is minimally invasive and certainly doesn’t require extended recovery time, as other treatments may.
Conditions Treated With PRP Injections
We can use PRP injections to treat a number of illnesses. These treatments aren’t just for athletes or seniors; anyone over thirty with one of the following problems may benefit from this regenerative medicine treatment:
- Knee pain
- Back pain
- Disc problems
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Elbow pain
- Hip pain
- Other joint pain
- Bone issues
- Neuropathy (nerve pain)
- Damaged or degraded cartilage
- Plantar fasciitis
Platelet-rich plasma isn’t always about treating pain. PRP may be used for aesthetic procedures and facelifts to fill out sunken areas of the face and provide a more youthful appearance.
Our platelet-rich plasma injections are intended to help our patients meet their health goals. Chronic pain and the other serious illnesses listed above can stop you from playing with your grandchildren or just performing the tasks necessary for your everyday life. We can encourage your body to heal itself better and allow you to get back to living your life.
Why Choose PRP Therapy?
PRP therapy has several advantages over other treatments you may consider to meet your health and wellness goals.
We prefer PRP therapies because they are minimally invasive. This helps our patients get back to the activities they most enjoy, while if they had pursued surgeries or other invasive treatments, they may deal more pain and long recovery periods.
It is also less expensive than many other forms of medicine. Further, we can use PRP injections to supplement other treatments and compound the healing effects. Together, PRP injections and other regenerative tissue treatments may get you the best results.
