What is PRP? PRP refers to platelet-rich plasma, a regenerative medicine treatment designed to alleviate pain and help restore mobility and range of motion. PRP treatment uses your own blood to help repair and regenerate damaged cells and tissue. This is a highly effective, all-natural alternative to traditional medication and surgery.
We use PRP for natural pain relief from a wide range of issues and conditions and will create a custom treatment plan for you when you visit our medical clinic.
What is a PRP Injection?
A PRP injection is a treatment that’s made up of your own blood and is designed to treat a variety of painful conditions. Once the sample of blood is taken, it is placed into a centrifuge where it is spun to separate the red blood cells and the platelets.
The separated blood platelets are highly concentrated and contain healing properties that will help to boost your body’s own healing process, treat damaged tissue and cells and relieve your pain naturally.
These injections are not painful and they will get to work quickly, repairing and rejuvenating the cells and tissues that need it the most.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
PRP therapy is an all-natural treatment that never relies on surgery or medication to get results. There is no downtime associated with PRP, and since it is made up of your own blood, there is no chance of the treatment being rejected. The key factor that makes PRP an effective pain relief treatment is that it focuses on treating the underlying cause of your pain and discomfort, not just on the pain itself.
When you rely on medication to mask the symptoms and don’t address the issue or resort to surgery, you can run into a host of different problems:
- Dependency on dangerous pain medications
- Long recovery times after surgery
- Even more pain and suffering down the road if the surgery doesn’t work
- Further damage due to overuse of the injured body part while medicated
- Years of pain management that never gets you the results you need
When you opt for all-natural platelet-rich plasma therapy to ease your pain, the underlying cause will be addressed and treated, so the by-product of pain will no longer be relevant.
You will be able to carry on with your normal activities and find relief from problems that include:
- Knee pain
- Shoulder pain
- Ankle pain
- Elbow pain
- Joint pain
- Plantar fasciitis
