Treating Your Pain At The Root Cause With Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet-rich plasma is effective because it helps treat the underlying cause of your painful condition instead of just masking the pain with medication. If you are in pain and cover it up with painkillers, you’ll only get temporary relief because you haven’t resolved what’s causing the symptom.
When you use platelet-rich plasma to work with your body’s own healing process, you can experience lasting relief because the cause of the pain no longer exists. It is also a viable alternative to invasive surgery, whether it is a hip or knee replacement or just a standard surgery to try and repair a problem that’s causing you pain.
Some of the conditions that platelet-rich plasma can help treat:
How Does PRP Therapy Work?
PRP therapy starts with us taking a sample of your blood. This blood sample is placed into a centrifuge, where we spin it at high speed to separate the red blood cells and the platelets. What’s left is platelet-rich plasma, which is highly concentrated with healing compounds, which are injected into your damaged or degraded tissue to help facilitate a healing response.
PRP therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that doesn’t typically require any downtime after your appointment. Most of the time, you can just carry on with your day without any side effects at all.
Since the treatment is made using a sample of your own blood, the likelihood of rejection is virtually non-existent. PRP is an effective pain relief treatment for anyone looking to get results without drugs or surgery.
