Are you in pain because of your osteoarthritis? Do you suffer from bursitis, patellar tendonitis, plantar fasciitis or ankle sprains? If you are suffering from deep pain from any of these conditions you may benefit from PRP Therapy.
What is PRP Therapy? PRP or platelet-rich plasma is an innovative solution to achieve a faster and natural healing of osteoarthritis and tendon injuries. In this procedure, the growth factors and blood components of the patient are used to instigate the healing of the tissues that have been damaged. The platelets in your body contain copious amounts of growth factors that are released to the site of tissue damage.
PRP therapy enhances your body’s natural healing ability by delivering large amounts of platelets into the site of injury. To initiate therapy, a sample of your blood will be drawn and the blood will be placed in a centrifuge and spun at a high speed in order to separate the platelets from other blood components. The concentrated plasma containing high amounts of platelet will be injected into the site of injury to expedite the healing process.
The ultimate goal of PRP therapy is to address pain by accelerating the healing process. Several studies have shown that PRP therapy really does relieve pain. PRP therapy is primarily used to treat things like chronic hip bursitis and rotator cuff tears. Both of these injuries can create long-term pain and other issues if left untreated.
