Take Control Over Your Pain!
PRP Therapy is an exciting revolutionary treatment for chronic or acute pain. PRP Therapy utilizes the healing properties of your body’s own plasma to promote healing and to heal pain safely and without surgery. PRP Therapy does not mask or block pain, but works to heal damaged tissue for pain relief.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy is often referred to as regenerative therapy, since it uses your body’s adult stem cells and blood platelets to promote healing to end pain. It is a cutting-edge treatment that provides amazing patient outcomes for pain sufferers.
Platelet rich plasma therapy can provide relief from pain for good for patients suffering from chronic or acute pain caused by an injury. PRP therapy is a long-term solution that is effective for healing pain. By using your body’s own stem cells and blood platelets, PRP therapy delivers targeted healing to the damaged tissue, promoting regeneration of damaged cells.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy utilizes platelets taken from the patient’s own blood to rebuild damaged tendons or cartilage. Platelets normally circulate within the blood stream and are responsible for blood clotting and initiating a healing response in an acute injury. Many acute injuries do not heal adequately and can lead to chronic pain and loss of function of the injured area. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy allows us to harvest the patient’s own platelets and re-inject those platelets into the site of the injury to initiate healing and improvement of function. This is typically done under image guidance such as ultrasound and/or fluoroscopy.
As a result, the damaged tissue begins to heal. PRP has been successful in not only relieving pain, but also in jump-starting the healing process.
Injuries and conditions commonly treated by RIT procedures include:
Platelet rich plasma therapy and stem cell injections are done at our office and take about an hour. Patients return home the same day and are often able to work the following day. Most people who undergo PRP therapy are able to resume normal activities shortly after the procedure, and there is a short recovery time.
