PRP therapy is a minimally invasive treatment that uses platelet-rich plasma to promote soft tissue regeneration. It is a type of regenerative medicine that provides an optimum healing process to injuries and helps alleviate pain.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is defined as autologous blood with concentrations of platelets above baseline levels that contain several growth factors. The blood used for platelet-rich plasma is drawn directly from the patient.
The collected blood is placed in a special centrifuge to separate the platelets and to form the PRP concentrated substance. When the right concentration is achieved, the PRP substance is injected into the injured areas.
PRP substances are produced from the patient’s own blood, thus, his or her own platelets are used as PRP injectables. In most cases, the patient does not experience any adverse reactions to the injections.
PRP therapy is not only safe but effective and reliable in providing pain relief. It also ensures the reduction of swelling and discomfort.
Advanced PRP treatment uses a high concentration of platelets that are rich in growth factors. PRP therapy helps provide pain reduction and boosts damaged tissue repair. It can also help boost the healing process of injuries.
Here are five reasons you should give it a try:
Natural solution with minimal risk
One of the major benefits of PRP therapy is that we use your body’s own healing elements to create the serum.
To make PRP, we draw a sample of blood from your arm and spin it in a centrifuge that separates the platelets from the other components in your blood. You may be familiar with platelets’ blood clotting abilities, but these tiny cells also contain growth factors and proteins that play a central role in the healing process.
Because we use your own blood for PRP therapy, the risk of an adverse or allergic reaction is very low.
Accelerate the healing process
PRP is a form of regenerative medicine that supports your body’s natural healing process. When you have an injury, your blood delivers platelets to the area to stop the bleeding and repair the damage.
Though your body has everything it needs to heal an injury, sometimes the process is slow or ineffective due to the location of the injury or poor blood supply.
The PRP we use for your therapy contains a higher concentration of platelets, growth factors, and the healing proteins normally found in your blood. Our medical professionals inject the PRP directly into your injured or damaged tissue to supply the healing elements it needs to accelerate the process.
Ease pain and improve mobility
Joint pain is common and develops due to many causes, including injury, overuse, arthritis, or the general wear-and-tear that comes with age. The healing properties in the PRP reduce joint inflammation and pain and improve mobility.
Treatment is quick and painless
Though PRP therapy time varies depending on your individual health needs, in most cases, it’s a quick and painless treatment.
After we draw your blood and create your PRP for the injection, our medical professional injects the healing cells directly into the injured or damaged tissue, which only takes a few minutes. If needed, we may use a local anesthetic prior to your PRP injection to minimize discomfort.
Short recovery time
You may experience some swelling and inflammation after your PRP therapy, but you can go back to your usual day after your treatment. We provide activity and pain-relief guidelines following your PRP therapy to minimize post-therapy discomfort and support the healing process.
Though you may notice improvements in your pain and mobility within a week or so after your PRP therapy, the healing process takes time. It may take up to six months until you see the full benefits.
PRP therapy harnesses your body’s natural healing powers to accelerate the healing of injuries, ease pain, and improve health and function.
