Chronic neck pain can be one of the most interfering types of pain you can experience. The neck and its muscles are used all throughout the day, which can make even the slightest movement extremely painful. Neck pain can affect anyone at any age, with causes ranging from injury to a more chronic illness. If your neck pain is a serious enough issue, your doctor may make recommendations such as prescription pain medications or surgery.
Unfortunately, these types of treatment can come with many serious risks such as infection, side effects, and a long, arduous recovery time. If you are seeking an alternative option to surgery and pain medications, platelet-rich plasma may be something to consider.
Our doctors prefer to treat neck conditions with this type of treatment because they are noninvasive with a quick recovery time so you can return to your daily life without having to manage chronic pain. It gets right to the source of your chronic condition rather than only treating the symptoms.
PRP Injections for Severe Neck Pain
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses an injection of concentrated platelets taken from a sample of your own blood in order to treat your pain. These platelets contain important healing components, such as proteins and growth factors. The PRP therapy process begins with drawing a small sample of your blood and processing it through a centrifuge to separate and concentrate the healing platelets from the other components in the blood.
The resulting golden solution is then injected into a numbed area of the neck to relieve chronic pain. PRP is an ideal treatment because it involves no surgery or medication, and it uses your own blood, meaning there is minimal risk of side effects. Because this is a non-surgical treatment, there is virtually no recovery time, and you should be able to get back to your daily life the same day as treatment.
