What is a PRP Injection?
A PRP injection refers to a treatment that contains highly concentrated platelets from your own blood. It begins with the doctor taking a small sample of your blood and then placing it in a centrifuge. The spinning action separates the red blood cells from the platelets inside the test tube.
There are special healing factors in the platelets that will accelerate tissue repair and regeneration. These platelets are then injected directly into the site that’s causing you pain to facilitate the healing process.
These injections are all-natural, non-invasive treatments that don’t require surgery or pain medication to reduce your pain. The reason they are effective is because they target the cause of your pain and not just the symptoms. Whether your pain is mild or debilitating, it’s still just a by-product of whatever is happening inside your body.
PRP injections will repair the cells and tissues that are causing pain, and relieve the pain as a result. Masking the pain with medication will just start a cycle that never reaches a conclusion and may have serious consequences.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
PRP is an innovative treatment for natural pain relief that is effective for a range of different issues. This can include pain in your knees, joints, back, hips, neck, elbows and shoulders. It is also helpful for conditions like fibromyalgia, plantar fasciitis, cartilage damage, torn ligaments and sciatica.
This is a natural treatment using your own blood, which means that there is no chance of rejection. There is also very little downtime and no side effects.
Most of the time, you can just get back to your daily activities after the treatment, unlike surgery, which may require a lengthy hospital stay and weeks or even months of rehabilitation.
