If you are looking for a natural, minimally invasive alternative to surgery or a lifetime of medications to treat your painful condition, PRP for pain relief may be able to help.
Platelet-rich plasma injections, or PRP injections, are a natural treatment option that works with the body’s natural healing response to offer pain relief and help promote enhanced recovery from injuries or many diseases.
Chronic pain can wreak havoc on a person’s day-to-day life. Simple motions, activities we once took for granted can be off-limits for months or possibly forever.
Whether that’s something as simple as raising your arm above your head or climbing the stairs, or those things that make life sweet, like playing with the grandkids or hitting the links, it can affect us in many ways.
Many patients have options outside of drugs that only mask the pain, or risky, expensive surgery that comes with weeks of downtime and recovery.
In fact, at Mesquite Chiropractic & Injury, we use PRP to help treat patients with all sorts of conditions, including:
- Neck pain
- Joint pain
- Back pain
- Bone spurs
- Plantar fasciitis
- Torn tendons
- Torn ligaments
- Damaged cartilage
- Tennis elbow
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Meniscus injuries
- Aging, or wear and tear
- And more
How Does PRP for Pain Relief Work?
PRP therapy relies on the incredible healing properties already present within the patient’s system to offer pain relief and help stimulate renewal at the basic level. Platelets play a huge role in healing and growth within the body, so by injecting them into an area that is injured and having trouble recovering fast enough on its own, they can help enhance the process.
Did you know that when you are injured, a signal is sent out by the cells to have any available platelets sent to the site of the injury? They work to prevent further injury to the area, and are a key component in recovery. That’s because they have a high number of healing elements within them, such as growth factors, cytokines, proteins, and more.
When these platelets are processed into platelet-rich plasma, their ability to heal can be that much higher. With PRP, we bring all that potential directly to where it is needed most and let the system do the rest. This kind of targeted treatment has proven effective in treating many painful conditions, and we hope to be able to help you get out of pain too.
