One of the key benefits of PRP therapy is that it helps heal the root cause of your pain and doesn’t just cover up the symptom.
When you opt for pain medication to help deal with any painful condition, it’s really more of a pain management situation than it is pain relief.
You will experience relief for a brief period of time, but as the medication wears off, your pain will return, and you’ll have to take another dose in order to carry on with your day. We prefer to address the underlying cause of the pain and discomfort so you can experience long-lasting relief.
How The PRP Therapy Process Works
When we create platelet-rich plasma, we first take a sample of your blood and spin it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and the red blood cells.
Next, we create an injection using the highly concentrated PRP that contains healing properties. It’s then injected into your damaged or degraded tissue.
Once it’s been injected, the PRP will work with your body’s own natural healing mechanism to resolve the real cause of your pain.
This treatment is minimally invasive, consisting of basic injections. There is rarely any downtime associated with the treatment. It’s made from a sample of your own blood. The risk of side effects or rejection is virtually non-existent.
