Platelet Rich Plasma
Are you frustrated and fed up because chronic pain has reduced your quality of life? Have you been told that you have to undergo surgery or live with the pain? Patients at our Dallas, Texas, regenerative practice are getting all-natural pain relief from platelet-rich plasma PRP therapy, and so can you.
PRP therapy involves injecting a small amount of your blood, which has been medically processed to increase platelet density, into soft tissue to speed up healing. Platelets release multiple growth factors and unique biologically active proteins that play an essential role in tissue healing and regeneration. PRP injection therapy accelerates the healing of musculoskeletal injuries and disorders naturally, without subjecting you to significant risk or adverse effects.
Administering the PRP injection is a relatively short procedure completed at our medical center. A member of our medical team takes a small sample of blood from your arm, similar to the process of drawing blood for a blood test. Your blood is then placed into a special medical device to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the other components. The platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the affected joint to best aid healing.
Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy
Because PRP treatment is non-surgical, minimally invasive, with a low occurrence of side effects, the therapy is a highly sought after pain management option. This breakthrough procedure has other benefits, including:
- Treats a wide range of conditions caused by aging, degeneration, workplace accidents, auto accidents, and sports injuries
- Accelerates healing time in some slow to heal injuries
- No hospital visits as the procedure is performed in-house
- Minimal downtime which usually allows you to continue normal activities after treatments
Chronic pain often occurs without injury because of aging and degeneration. Sometimes, it's difficult to identify the exact cause of your condition. Platelets are your body’s first response to tissue injury. Rich in connective tissue and growth and healing factors, blood platelets initiate repair and attract stem cells to damaged or injured tissue to provide relief.
By injecting platelet-rich plasma into your damaged ligaments, tendons, and joints, you are able to stimulate natural repair processes in your body. PRP therapy is being used to treat a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions successfully.
PRP treatment is especially useful for chronic tendon issues that result in pain in the hips, knees, shoulders, and elbows. PRP injections may also provide relief for some forms of arthritis which are usually from degeneration and wear and tear. Various joints issues can also be treated with PRP injections.
