Why PRP Therapy?
PRP therapy is effective because it helps heal the root cause of the pain you’re feeling. When you address the underlying cause of any painful condition, you have a much higher likelihood of finding long-term pain relief.
Covering up pain with medication means you haven’t addressed the real cause, and you’ll only get temporary relief until the medication wears off. This creates a potentially dangerous cycle where you have to take medication to manage your pain continually.
And suppose you have issues with your shoulders, knees, or hips and are contemplating replacement surgery. In that case, it’s important to note that any surgical procedure is highly invasive and carries with it risks of infection. You also may find yourself in a situation where scar tissue is still reducing your mobility and range of motion and causing you pain even after the surgery and recovery is complete.
PRP therapy is minimally invasive, consisting of basic injections, and there is little downtime if any. Most of the time, you can get on with your day as soon as your appointment is over. And since the treatment is created from a sample of your own blood, there is no chance that your body will reject it.
To create platelet-rich plasma, we place your blood sample in a centrifuge where it spins at high speed to separate the platelets and the red blood cells. The PRP resulting from this procedure is highly concentrated, with healing properties, is then injected into your damaged or degraded tissue to help your body facilitate the healing process. It works alongside your body’s own natural healing process to resolve the underlying cause of your pain.
