Joint pain is really difficult to live with. If you deal with pain, arthritis, or injury you want to know about PRP! Surgery may not be the only option for joint pain relief! When you are busy or very active being out for several weeks or several months is just not an option. PRP therapy might be the right option for you!
What is PRP?
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. This protocol has been around for decades. Over the course of several treatments, your body will accelerate healing your injury! It can address issues like:
- Joint Pain
- Arthritis or osteoarthritis
- A torn ligament or ligament sprains
- Tendonitis or tendon injuries
- Injuries due to sports or exercising
- Common hand injuries
- Chronic pain in areas such as the feet, ankle, knees, elbow, wrist or shoulders.
- Range of motion, stability, balance, and stiffness.
The concentration of platelets promotes the natural healing of soft tissues, ligaments, cartilage, and tendons. It is excellent for all sorts of joint pain We take a sample of blood and spin it in a centrifuge to separate it into its parts. We take the very concentrated platelets, concentrated growth factors, and white blood cells and inject into the problem area. This will recruit your own body to heal you!
How has this worked for patients in the past?
I had a patient who came in with a severely sprained ankle. It was so bad, I thought he had torn ligaments. The traditional protocol would be months of ice, heat, and physical therapy before even getting an MRI, and then deciding what to do from there.
We decided he was a great candidate for PRP therapy. So we started with the traditional protocol and we added PRP. The results were amazing. Within a month of the injury, he was 75% better! By the end of the second month, he was 90% healed.
With the significant injury, we were dealing with traditional protocol alone would have taken 6 to 12 months to heal completely. Because we included PRP we used the bodies own healing mechanisms in exactly the area we needed to supercharge this healing in just 2 months!
