Platelet-rich plasma therapy is an all-natural, non-surgical way to treat many different types of pain you might be experiencing. This regenerative medicine treatment can help treat pain caused by injuries or wear and tear, as well as help with the healing process. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy could be a great option to help you heal and avoid medication and surgery if you are suffering from pain.
PRP injections utilize your own blood to harness the healing properties it contains through a quick procedure that requires no drugs or surgery. Since PRP therapy contains an abundance of natural growth factors, it is an effective, long-lasting treatment to ensure your body can naturally restore damaged tissue, muscles, and joints.
This regenerative treatment can deliver a high concentration of healing factors to the source of your pain, which can help your body naturally heal damaged or degraded joints, muscles, and other tissues. Because your own blood is used in the creation of our PRP treatment, your body will not reject it like it could with some other treatments.
PRP therapy is effective for many different conditions such as:
- Torn ligaments and rotator cuff
- Muscular tears
- Torn or partially torn labrum
- Shoulder, elbow, hip, and back pain
- Joint pain
- Knee and ankle injuries
- Degenerative joint disease, and other tissues
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma is created by extracting a small sample of blood from your own body. Our doctors then use a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the blood sample into a platelet-rich serum. Once this healing serum is created, it can then be injected back into the damaged tissue or site of the pain you are experiencing.
Once the serum is injected, the PRP can begin working by releasing rich growth factors to start the healing process and start repairing the injured tissue. This incredible, potent therapy speeds up the healing and repair process and attracts more healing cells to that area of the body. This can also be used in injured and painful joints to speed up healing and reduce pain.
PRP therapy is not only effective in treating new injuries, but can be used to treat older injuries and is effective the treatment of numerous other conditions. Great news for people who suffer from arthritis – PRP treatment has also been successfully used to repair cartilage and reduce pain from osteoarthritis.
