Chronic pain is typically caused by an old injury that never healed correctly, perhaps due to repeated stress, injury, or pain relief from medication only.
Your body has the inherent ability to heal from within. Platelet-rich plasma is a natural therapy that harnesses your innate ability to recover and gives your body a boost. PRP is an injected substance made in-office by concentrating your blood platelets from a sample. Your blood is made up of a liquid component (plasma) and several solid cellular components, including platelets. These platelets are rich in proteins and molecules called growth factors that signal your body to heal itself.
Platelets in your blood are responsible for healing. With PRP therapy, a sample of your blood is taken and placed into a medical device to separate and concentrate platelets, significantly boosting your body's healing power once injected. When PRP is injected into the site of your pain or injury, it stimulates cellular growth, tissue regeneration, and collagen production to improve function and reduce pain.
PRP contains therapeutic growth factors and bioactive proteins that act to speed up healing. Injected platelets release growth factors, which trigger a healing cascade, increasing blood flow, healing, the renewal of tissue, and restoration of damaged cells.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
Because the treatment uses your blood, PRP is a natural, safe, low-risk treatment that tackles pain at its source. PRP therapy is beneficial for the treatment of conditions like:
- Torn ligaments
- Plantar fasciitis
- Disc problems
- Bone issues
If you're in pain or tending an injury, you may have resorted to pain medications to help you manage the pain. You may get temporary relief, but prescription drugs only mask the pain without getting to the root of the problem. PRP therapy offers effective pain relief and healing so that you can avoid painful surgery and its associated complications.
PRP therapy may be the right treatment for you if:
- You have a tendon, ligament, or joint injury that won't go away and hasn't improved with traditional treatments.
- You have osteoarthritis.
- You are interested in all natural therapies that offer long-lasting pain relief.
- You want to target the root cause of your pain.
- You want to heal quickly.
You may also be interested in PRP for aesthetics. Due to its healing properties and growth factors that stimulate skin rejuvenation, platelet-rich plasma can be used for:
- Wrinkle reduction
- Skin smoothing
- Skin tightening
- Reducing age spots, acne scars, other scars, and other blemishes
