Platelet-rich plasma injections, also known as PRP injections, are natural treatments for pain relief that utilize the platelets in your own blood. You may have heard of PRP for aesthetic purposes, but it is also highly effective for targeting conditions that cause pain in the body and providing long-term relief.
Whether you have been injured in a car accident, hurt yourself playing sports, or exercising or have a degenerative condition that causes chronic pain, platelet-rich plasma may be a practical solution.
PRP injections are effective for the relief of issues that include:
- Back pain
- Knee pain
- Shoulder pain
- Neck pain
- Neck pain
- Hip pain
- Joint pain
How the Process Works
After a small sample of blood is drawn in our office, it is placed into a centrifuge where the platelets and plasma are separated. The resulting platelets are concentrated with healing properties and are injected directly into the affected area to get the healing process started. Not only do they contain their own healing compounds, but they also encourage your body’s own healing mechanism for fast and efficient healing and pain relief.
All-Natural Pain Relief
The main reason that PRP therapy is so effective is that it is a natural treatment that targets the root cause of your pain. In conventional medicine, the symptom, which is the pain, is usually covered up or masked with pain medication. The result is temporary pain relief that comes back every time the medication wears off. Since the actual cause of the pain is never addressed, the condition and the pain will persist.
With PRP treatment, the cells and tissues are repaired and regenerated, so the cause of the pain is alleviated, and the pain no longer needs to be there. Pain is just a byproduct of the underlying problem, so the only accurate way to relieve the pain is to focus the cause of it.
Little Down Time and Zero Side Effects
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a non-invasive solution and requires little to no downtime after treatment. Many people stop in and have their treatment and are able to go right back to work. And since it is made using your own blood, the risk of rejection is zero.
What you get is natural pain relief that doesn’t require a big-time commitment on your part and has no side effects. When you compare this to highly invasive surgeries that require lengthy recovery times and risky pain medications, it’s easy to understand why so many people want to give it a try.
If you experience pain on a regular basis and want an all-natural solution with lasting results, PRP injections may be just what you’ve been looking for. Contact our clinic today for a consultation to get the process started.
