What is PRP Therapy?
PRP is short for platelet-rich plasma. This powerful healing factor is found in your blood and plays a role in healing parts of your body when it is injured. In order to harvest it to treat your pain, we take a draw of your blood and process it through a special machine to pull out the PRP healing factors. The blood is then returned to your body. The PRP is then processed into an injection to be applied to the part of the body where the doctor feels like it can do the most good.
How does platelet-rich plasma heal my body and help with my pain symptoms?
PRP Therapy helps heal your body by promoting new tissue growth and in turn, reducing inflammation. Linger inflammation is often a stumbling block for an area to fully recover from an injury. New tissue replacing tissue that has been damaged combined with reduced inflammation goes a long way to helping you feel better?
How long does PRP procedure take?
All in all, it takes about thirty minutes to complete a PRP treatment session. We need about 15 minutes to draw the blood from your body and another 15 minutes to turn it into an injection. Once the treatment is administered, you will be discharged from our clinic! Depending on the area of the injection and the number of injections you have received, it may be helpful to apply ice to the treatment area every few hours to help with any inflammation. As for when you should notice a difference, most patients report feeling better throughout the week. We will schedule a follow up appointment at our facility in about six weeks to ensure there are no unexpected complications with your PRP treatment.
How do I know if I am right for a PRP treatment?
Generally, you are right for a PRP treatment if previous methods to control your pain have not been successful. In most cases, physical therapy is usually the first choice to treat chronic pain. After that, other medications may be tried to see if there is any improvement to your condition. Visit our pain management clinic if you have not made any progress of your pain management despite the use of physical therapy, cortisone injections, and anti-inflammatories. Our doctor will review with you one on one of your current pain and your past medical history. We will only prescribe this therapy if we think it is helpful to control your pain.
