What is PRP Therapy?
PRP is a regenerative process that uses the components of your blood to stimulate healing. You'll first have blood drawn and then put into a centrifuge to extract the platelets. Platelets are known for their recovery and growth capability. The removed solution is injected into your injury site, sometimes with the aid of ultrasound.
Once injected, the platelets help to repair the damaged area. Most people experience a significant improvement in their pain within one to three injections.
Many conditions can be treated with PRP injections. Some include tennis below, muscle strain and tears, ligament injuries, MCL and LCL ligaments, spine issues, and knee and hip pain.
The PRP process is not painful. We will guide you through each step of the process to ensure you are comfortable.
Unfortunately, not every patient is a good candidate for PRP therapy. If you have severe anemia, low platelet count, or cancer, we recommend not getting PRP injections.
Advantages of PRP Therapy
PRP is a popular treatment method for its healing capabilities. Common reasons to use PRP injections include;
- You will avoid surgery with PRP injections.
- PRP is a minimally invasive process.
- PRP therapy has a quicker recovery than surgery
Injections are safe since you are putting your blood back into your body. This prevents the risk of infection. The needle has some possible complications, such as bruising or soreness. Schedule an appointment at our office if you have any complications from the injection.
It's expected that you'll be able to live pain-free with almost or complete recovery of the injured body part. Our team has a goal to help you stop pain at the source. You should start noticing a dramatic improvement within a few weeks of treatment.
