Platelet-rich plasma therapy, or PRP therapy, is a cutting edge treatment option for those who suffer from all types of pain. Whether it’s an acute injury or a chronic condition, PRP therapy is an effective solution for pain relief that lasts.
As we age, our bodies tend to recover less quickly than when we were younger. Think about how quickly a child heals after they fall and hurt their knee at 6 years old, versus 60 years old. A child’s injury heals much faster and with much fewer lingering complications than when we are older because of the body’s innate ability to heal itself. When we are older, our body has a much harder time healing and repairing itself. People will often turn to medications or surgery to try and fix the problem that persists after sustaining an injury or a condition.
Unfortunately, many of these treatment options are temporary or extremely risky and offer no real relief for the underlying condition or injury that is truly causing you pain.
However, PRP therapy is an alternative, drug-free, non-surgical solution that gets to the root of your debilitating pain for real relief that lasts.
How Does PRP Therapy Work?
PRP therapy, or platelet-rich plasma therapy, involves a simple outpatient procedure with minimal risk of rejection or downtime post-treatment. It works by extracting a small sample of your blood, which is then spun through a centrifuge, concentrating the healing platelets found within the blood sample, and then using the resulting solution for treatment. This rich, golden solution is then injected into the area of need to bring its potent healing qualities straight to the source of your pain. This signals your body’s natural healing mechanisms to flock to the source of injury and repair your condition at the root of the problem.
There are many conditions that PRP therapy can help treat, including:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Knee pain
- Joint pain
- Shoulder pain
- Hip pain
- Bulging discs
- Slipped discs
- Damaged cartilage
- Elbow pain or tennis elbow
- Bone issues
- Arthritis and osteoarthritis
- And more
Platelet-rich plasma is an effective treatment option for people who have been dealing with chronic pain or severe pain and are looking for a solution to their debilitating condition that lasts.
