The human body has its own amazing natural ability to heal itself. For example, if you have an injury like a cut and the scab starts to form, then your body’s immune system starts to protect the wound from getting infected.
Oxygen is essential when it comes to our healing ability. The white blood cells in a human body can help fight off infection from germs, which will help to protect the wound and keep it from getting worse. Our bodies can heal almost anything. If it can’t, it’s because the current injury may be too strong to be healed naturally.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a treatment that uses injections of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, joints, and muscles.
There are various conditions that Platelet-rich plasma can help, such as:
- knee pain
- back pain
- neck pain
- shoulder pain
- joint pain
- damaged or degraded cartilage
- a torn ligament
- muscle injury
- multiple or repetitive stress injuries
- disc problems
In the platelet-rich plasma injection process, our doctor will draw blood from your arm, which will be processed to extract the platelets. Afterward, PRP is injected into the injured area, which will stimulate the body’s natural healing process and reduce pain.
This procedure can help prevent the need for long term medication or having to go through extensive treatments or surgery. PRP is made up of your own blood; you are at almost no risk of rejection or infection. With this treatment, you can usually continue your normal daily activities immediately.
With PRP injections, platelets are just a single element of blood that plays a primary role when it comes to blood clots. They can also play an important part in regenerative healing by stimulating the repair of any damaged tissue.
Platelet-rich plasma can provide you with a powerful, effective treatment for acute or chronic pain, whether minor or severe. Another advantage of platelet-rich plasma is that it is a non-surgical treatment that offers faster results if you are looking for long-lasting pain relief. Most patients find that they receive pain relief more quickly thanks to these injections.
