How does PRP therapy work?
The long name for PRP is Platelet Rich Plasma. This substance resides in the blood flowing through your body and is a powerful healing factor. When an injury is detected in your body, it is used to help start the healing process. On its own, PRP encourages the body to heal itself. At our clinic, we concentrate that healing power and use it to boost the body’s healing efforts in specific parts of your body to treat injuries. PRP Therapy also helps reduce inflammation, which can hinder a body’s ability to heal itself.
How do you make a PRP injection for me?
First, come to our clinic in Venice, FL, for a consultation with one of our doctors. At the Ramos Center for Interventional & Functional Pain Medicine, we never prescribe a treatment unless we think it can do some good for our patients. Our pain management specialist will review your medical history and symptoms to determine if this treatment is right for you. You will then, once approved, make an appointment for a PRP Therapy Session.
Once you arrive for your appointment, you will be escorted to a private room for treatment. We will take a sample of your blood and run it through a special machine that spins it at high speeds. This process will separate the PRP from the rest of your blood. In some cases, the blood will then be returned to your body. Once harvested, the PRP will then be processed into injection and applied to the treatment area. The concentration of platelets in this injection can be nearly ten times the amount you would typically find. This injection will boost the body’s ability to heal itself.
What kind of benefits should I expect from PRP Therapy?
PRP Therapy often encourages the body to heal damaged tissue. It is commonly used with plastic surgery, but many uses for it has been found when treating patients with chronic pain or lingering injuries. Muscle and tendon injuries have responded positively to this treatment in patients. Ligaments, which can take time to heal correctly, have responded well to this treatment making PRP Therapy a desirable option.
How long does a PRP Therapy session last? Is there any downtime?
There is usually no recovery time needed after a PRP Therapy session. Most patients resume their day without any limitations. On average, it takes about 30 minutes to draw your blood, processes the PRP, and then inject it into the treatment area.
