Pain without an obvious injury is among the biggest obstacles faced by those who want to be active.
Current conventional medical treatments for joint pain or injury attempts to mask or alleviate symptoms, but does little towards improving the condition.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) may be a suitable option for those with joint pain or injury who do not respond to standard treatment, want to reduce their dependence on medication, or who desire natural or alternative options.
Platelet rich plasma uses the platelets and growth factors in your blood to initiate connective tissue healing and repair.
Conditions that respond well to PRP treatments include:
- Chronic pain
Patients have reported the following benefits of PRP therapy for joint pain or injury:
- Reduced joint pain
- Improved range of motion
- Better mobility
- Less reliance on OTC medications
- Reduced inflammation
Our goal is to provide patients customized care and individualized treatment strategies based on their overall health. Our PRP treatments have the potential to positively impact the quality of life for patients suffering from joint pain or injury. Platelet rich plasma therapy is an in-office pain-free no downtime 30-minute procedure. A small amount of blood is drawn from a vein in your arm.
This sample is spun and processed in our onsite laboratory by experienced technicians to collect the platelets and growth factors. The PRP is then injected into the area using ultrasound guidance. This ensures that the exact location of pain or injury is targeted for optimal results. For best results, a series of treatments may be recommended.
