Are you looking for all-natural pain relief from sore joints, damaged or degraded cartilage, arthritis, neuropathy, or any other painful condition? Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can accelerate tissue repair in your severe and non-healing injuries.
Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy is a form of regenerative medicine that harnesses the incredible healing power of platelets to help patients get on the path to recovery. To learn more about our innovative therapies, contact us today.
Platelet-rich plasma injections can be broken down into two steps. The first step is preparing the platelet-rich plasma for injection. Our doctor draws a small amount of blood from your arm, and the blood is processed to extract the platelets. The valuable, concentrated solution is rich with proteins and other bioactive substances that enhance tissue regeneration and healing.
Then, PRP is injected into the injured area to stimulate your body’s natural healing process and reduce pain. In addition to returning to normal function, you can experience significant improvement in symptoms and eliminate the need for more aggressive treatments and long-term medication and surgery.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma injections are a viable treatment for both chronic and acute injuries, especially when your priorities are receiving all-natural pain relief and speeding up the healing process. PRP injections solve a variety of health problems and can be applied to almost any situation when an injury is slow to heal or limiting your quality of life.
PRP treatment can be performed in tendons and ligaments all over the body. Collagen makes up the base structure of tendon tissue. PRP treatment triggers the regeneration process, and new collagen begins to develop.
Similarly, chondrocytes (cartilage cells) form when PRP injections are introduced into damaged cartilage. That’s why PRP is highly sought after for joint pain and bone issues.
Platelet-rich plasma is effective for:
- Knee pain
- Back and neck pain
- Elbow pain
- Hip pain
- Joint pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Disc problems
- And more
Since you donate your blood for the procedure, there is no need to worry about reactions or infections. We perform PRP treatments on an outpatient basis so that you receive the care you need and can get back to your day.
We will provide you with an in-depth evaluation and advise you on PRP's efficacy and how to space your treatments if more than one is required for a chronic condition. Since the risks and side effects are minimal and do not increase with the number of injections, you aren't limited to the number of treatments you can have.
