Treating Your Debilitating Pain at the Source with PRP Therapy
The key to the success of PRP therapy as a pain relief treatment is that it treats the cause of your pain and not just the symptom. It’s important to remember that the pain and discomfort you feel are just by-products of what is happening below the surface, in your tissues, muscles, joints, etc. If you just mask those symptoms with medication, the best you’ll get is temporary relief until the medication wears off and the pain returns. You may also end up causing more damage because you’ll feel compelled to use the injured area while the medication is in effect.PRP therapy addresses the root cause of the pain, sending healing properties into your damaged or degraded tissue to help your body resolve the issue for long-term pain relief. To create platelet-rich plasma, a sample of your own blood is placed into a centrifuge, where it is spun at high speed to separate the red blood cells from the platelets.
These platelets are concentrated with healing compounds that are injected into the area of need to help get the results you want.
PRP therapy is minimally invasive, consisting of basic injections, and there is little to no downtime after your appointment. You can have your treatment, and most of the time just get on with your day like normal. And since platelet-rich plasma is derived from your own blood, there are no side effects, and the likelihood of rejection is virtually zero.
