How does PRP therapy work?
PRP is short for Platelet Rich Plasma. This powerful healing factor is in your body right now contained within your blood. It is used to help heal parts of your body when you are injured. PRP encourages the body to heal itself, and we harness that power to boost that healing in specific areas of the body. A PRP injection has been shown to reduce inflammation and prompt the body to start to heal itself faster.
How do you make a PRP injection for me?
First, you need to make an appointment at the Ramos Center for Interventional & Functional Pain Medicine and meet one on one with one of our doctors. They will review your current symptoms and medical history to make sure this is the right treatment for you. Once approved, you will make an appointment for a PRP Therapy Session.
When you arrive at our clinic, we will bring you into your own private room and take a sample of your blood. We will put this blood through a special device that spins it at high speed, which will separate the PRP from the rest of the blood. In some cases, once the PRP has been collected from the blood, it will be returned to your body. The PRP is then processed into an injection, and the doctor will apply it to the treatment area. This high concentration of platelets, which can be nearly ten times the amount compared to normal blood, will then encourage the body to heal itself.
What kind of benefits should I expect from PRP Therapy?
PRP Therapy has been shown to do a great job in healing tissue. While it is often used with plastic surgery, this therapy can also be applied to areas of the body where linger injuries, or chronic pain resides. Injured tendons and muscles have responded positively to this treatment in the past. PRP Therapy for ligaments is especially attractive given how much time it takes for this tissue to heal.
Research has indicated that PRP therapy reduces inflammation. Inflammation can often cause joints to be painful and stiff. It can also prevent other injuries from healing at a healthy pace. PRP therapy is a versatile tool that our doctors can use to help you feel better.
Are there side effects of PRP Therapy?
Generally, we do not see any side effects with PRP Therapy. Since we are taking platelets from your blood and injecting it into a different part of your body, there is no chance for adverse reaction, rejection, and little if any chance of infection. Some patients may experience some pain, irritation, or bleeding at the injection site, but it is minor and goes away after a few days.
How long does a PRP Therapy session last?
In most cases, patients can resume their days after a PPR injection. It only takes about 30 minutes, on average, for our providers to draw the blood, process the PRP injection, and then inject it into your treatment area.
