What is a PRP Injection?
A PRP injection refers to a treatment containing platelet-rich plasma that is created from a sample of your own blood. A small amount of blood is drawn, and then it is spun in a centrifuge where the plasma separates from the platelets. These platelets have a high concentration of healing factors that can be used as a natural treatment for a variety of conditions.
Once the PRP has been prepared, it is injected back into your body in areas that are in need of healing. Many people gravitate to regenerative medicine treatments like PRP because they are all-natural and don’t require medication or surgery, and there is typically no downtime.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
PRP therapy is effective when it comes to reducing pain because it helps to heal underlying conditions and doesn’t just mask the symptoms. PRP injections promote inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling which are all important aspects of wound healing.
When the root cause of the pain is addressed and treated, then the outward symptom, which is the pain, will no longer exist. Conventional treatments often rely on potentially addictive pain medication to cover up the pain, but this can lead to a dangerous cycle of abuse.
PRP treatment is all-natural and since it utilizes your own blood, there is no fear of rejection. Platelet-rich plasma injections have been successfully used to treat a wide range of conditions that can affect your quality of life. They include knee pain, back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, elbow pain, joint pain, hip pain, damaged or degraded cartilage, torn ligaments, elbow pain, neuropathy, plantar fasciitis, disc problems, bone problems and more.
PRP therapy can also be used for aesthetic treatments such as hair restoration and wrinkles in the forehead and under the eyes. Like the treatments for pain relief, these are natural and use your own blood, so there will be no foreign bodies or chemicals being injected into your skin.
