What Orthopedic and Degenerative Conditions Can PRP Therapy Treat?
Platelet-rich plasma injections can effectively treat a range of different health conditions and issues that are causing you pain on a daily basis. Both long-term degenerative problems and damage caused by acute injuries, like slip and fall accidents or car accidents, can be helped using PRP.
Here’s a list of some of the orthopedic and degenerative conditions that PRP therapy can treat:
- Shoulder pain
- Knee pain
- Hip pain
- Back pain
- Foot pain
- Joint pain
- Wrist pain
- Ankle pain
It’s important to remember that the pain you’ve been feeling that has been affecting your life on a regular basis is not the main issue. It is just a result or by-product of the main issue. The damaged and degraded tissue under the surface is what is really causing your pain. Once it is addressed and resolved, you’ll experience the long-term pain relief you need.
Covering up the pain with medication only offers temporary relief. In some cases, may even make the damage worse as the problem persists. PRP therapy focuses on the cause of the problem and not just the symptoms. That way you will be able to live your life without limitations.
How Does Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy Work?
Platelet-rich plasma therapy begins with a sample of your own blood. It then goes into a centrifuge to be spun at high speed. This action separates the red blood cells from the platelets and the resulting liquid is rich in concentrated platelets with potent healing properties.
Once the platelets are injected into the injured area, they will assist your body’s own healing abilities to resolve and repair those underlying problems so you can experience the relief you’ve been looking for. These treatments require little to no downtime and are minimally invasive, so you can continue your day after the appointment.
