Pain Management Therapy with PRP
Did you know that over 100 million Americans suffer from knee and joint pain? In fact, this pain accounts for 25% of all visits to primary care physicians and half of all anti-inflammatory drug prescriptions.
Nowadays, doctors have learned that the body can heal itself. We utilize an innovative Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) therapy to help your body to heal, regenerate and manage pain. PRP procedure is a form of an advanced regenerative medicine that can utilize body’s self-healing capabilities and strengthen the natural growth factors your body utilizes to heal tissue.
What is PRP and what are PRP injections?
PRP therapy has made headlines lately, often because it is favored by elite athletes to help them recover from injury fast and effectively.
The core of the therapy is the use of “platelets”. Platelets are tiny blood cells that help your body form clots to stop bleeding. The Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured muscles, tissues and joints. In this way, PRP injections use your own own healing system to improve musculoskeletal problems.
The procedure is the following: a small blood sample is taken from the patient and then placed into a centrifuge that spins at high speed. This process takes apart platelets from other blood components. These activated and concentrated platelets are then injected directly into your injured or diseased body tissue. This releases growth factors that stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells your body produces, and the healing process starts.
