How Does PRP Therapy Work?
Platelet-rich plasma therapy can help heal the root cause of your pain, which, in turn, will relieve the pain symptoms over the long-term. It’s important to remember that the pain you feel isn’t the primary issue. It’s just a by-product of the real issue. If the pain is covered up with medication, you won’t feel it, but the results will be short-lived.
You may also end up causing further damage if you use the injured area of the body while the medication is in effect. PRP works with your body’s own healing capabilities to resolve the underlying problem so you can experience real, long-lasting relief without drugs or surgery.
PRP therapy starts with a sample of your own blood. After the blood is drawn, it’s spun in a centrifuge where the red blood cells and platelets are separated. The platelets are highly concentrated and contain rich healing properties. After they are made into PRP injections, they are injected back into your damaged or degraded tissue to help the healing process.
Some of the benefits of platelet-rich plasma treatment include:
- Derived from your own blood, so there is virtually no risk of rejection
- Little to no downtime
- Minimally invasive
- Quick and efficient treatments
- Encourages your body’s own healing mechanisms
- Allows you to avoid risky surgery or potentially dangerous drugs
