PRP Therapy for Pain Relief

PRP treatment or Platelet Rich Plasma therapy utilizes the blood’s natural healing properties to repair damaged cartilage, tendons, ligaments, muscles, or even bone.

When treating arthritis with PRP or platelet-rich plasma, the doctor injects PRP directly into the affected joint.

The goal of PRP therapy at top pain clinics, such as Phoenix Shoulder and Knee Clinic, is to –

  • reduce pain
  • improve joint function
  • slow down or even repair damage to cartilage

Platelet-rich plasma is often derived from a sample of the patient’s own blood. The injections contain plasma with a higher concentration of platelets than is found in normal blood. This PRP can then be injected directly into the site of an injury in an effort to stimulate a powerful healing response. By enhancing the body’s natural healing capacity, PRP injections can result in faster, more efficient and thorough restoration of the tissues to a healthy state.

PRP therapy been used successfully in the following conditions –

  • Patellar tendonitis/tendinosis
  • Quadriceps muscle injuries
  • Knee osteoarthritis
  • Hip osteoarthritis
  • Rotator Cuff tendonitis, tendonopathy or partial tears
  • Biceps tendonitis
  • Medial and Lateral epicondylitis of the elbow (golfers & tennis elbow)
  • Ulnar Collateral Ligament sprain or tear
  • Achilles tendonitis or partial tears

As more research with PRP is performed, this list is likely to expand to include numerous other orthopedic conditions.

Let Your Body Heal Naturally With Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is a regenerative therapy that uses patient’s own blood components to stimulate a healing response in damaged tissues. This therapy is proving effective in treating damaged tissues such as muscles and tendons.

HOW DOES PLATELET RICH PLASMA WORK
Your blood contains plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. In case of an injury in the body, the platelets move to the site of injury and help initiate a healing response. Platelets also release numerous growth factors and other proteins which assist with the healing process.

HOW PLATELET RICH PLASMA IS USED
Platelet-rich plasma can be created by discarding red and white blood cells from a normal sample of blood. The remaining fluid is plasma extremely concentrated with platelets and the healing factors they contain; this remaining fluid is known as platelet-rich plasma, or PRP.

PRP is injected directly into the site of an injury in an effort to stimulate a powerful healing response. By invoking the body’s natural healing capacity, PRP injections can lead to a more rapid, more efficient, and thorough restoration of the tissue to a healthy state.

WHICH CONDITIONS CAN PRP TREAT
PRP injections can be used to treat a variety of injuries to muscles and tendons, especially those that are failing to heal with typical conservative treatments, such as physical therapy and anti-inflammatory medications. PRP injections have been used successfully in the following conditions:
