What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is found in the plasma in your blood, and it’s rich in platelets which contain growth factors. These growth factors have the ability to heal injuries naturally. It may be possible to use PRP for accelerated healing and pain relief.

PRP contains many more growth factors than regular blood. When the PRP is extracted from blood, it can be injected into an area of the body where it may help to heal the area, and this is what PRP treatment is! There are lots of applications for and benefits of PRP treatment, so let’s get into them.

What are the benefits of PRP injections?

PRP injections may have a number of advantages over other treatments, as well as a number of applications and benefits. Some of these may be:

  • Pain relief, even from chronic pain
  • The healing of muscles, tendons, and joints
  • Increased range of motion
  • Possible treatment of tendonitis, arthritis, ligament sprains, and tears
  • You may be able to avoid pain medication or other treatments
  • The healing is very natural, using your own blood to treat your body
  • The procedure is quick and not very uncomfortable for most patients
  • PRP injections may help to speed up recovery post-surgery (for the treatment of an injury or a chronic disease like arthritis)

Contact our clinic to learn more about the possible benefits of PRP treatment.

What should I expect from the PRP procedure?

First, you can expect a comprehensive consultation with us here at Back to Life Integrated Medicine. We’ll go over your symptoms, medical history, and more, and provide the tests you’ll need, all to make sure PRP treatment is right for you. A test could be a blood test or imaging procedure.

Before a PRP treatment, our provider can use a numbing cream to numb the injection site. During the treatment, the provider will take a sample of your blood from your arm, then spin the blood in a centrifuge to isolate the PRP. Then the provider will inject the PRP into your body at strategic points where there’s diseased tissue, an injury, or chronic pain. Joints and muscles can be common sites for PRP injections. The injections take only minutes to complete, then you’re done!

Over time, your symptoms may be relieved significantly. A series of injections may provide the best results, or PRP paired with other holistic treatments we provide here at Back to Life Integrated Medicine.
