Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy has become one of the most popular forms of treatment due to its effective results, plus its many benefits — one of them being its success in treating acute conditions.
Our expert team at Regenerative Spine and Pain Institute offers this regenerative medicine to bring repair and healing to your body. It’s a cutting-edge, nonsurgical solution that can treat the root of your pain and give you long-lasting relief.
PRP is a simple outpatient procedure. It has minimal risk of side effects and requires no downtime after your treatment.
To create the healing solution, we first take a small sample of your blood. We then put it in a centrifuge where it spins at an extremely high speed. This action separates the solids from the liquid portion of your blood (plasma).
We then collect the platelets, or growth factors, and mix them with some of the plasma, which creates the platelet-rich, plasma-concentrated solution. The growth factors help stimulate and enhance the healing process.
We then inject it into the targeted area that needs treatment. It goes straight to the source of your pain, signaling your body’s natural healing process to begin working, repairing and healing the root of the problem.
Ultimately, PRP has the ability to replace your damaged or diseased tissue with new tissue using your very own blood and cells.
The list of acute conditions that PRP can treat is lengthy. It includes:
We also use PRP for sports medicine, wound care, and when performing orthopedic and plastic surgery. This method of treatment offers the potential to completely heal your damaged tissues and organs, which gives hope if you’ve had an acute condition you didn’t think could be helped.
As researchers continue to learn about the efficacy of PRP therapy, some studies have given credence to the success of the treatment. One recent study showed that patients with osteoarthritis experienced compelling positive changes in their condition up to 12 months after they had PRP injections. Studies like this keep PRP as a frontrunner for treatment.
