PRP contains up to 10 times more growth factors than regular blood and is useful for accelerated healing and pain relief.
PRP injections provide your body with numerous benefits, such as:
If you do require surgery for an injury or chronic disease, such as arthritis, PRP injections help speed up your recovery.
The first step in PRP treatment at Back to Life Integrated Medicine is a review of your medical history and symptoms.
Your provider examines you and may use blood tests or imaging procedures, such as X-rays or MRIs, to diagnose an injury or the cause of chronic pain. They let you know if you’re a good candidate for PRP.
If so, they take a sample of blood from your arm using a tiny needle and spin the blood in a centrifuge to isolate PRP from the rest of your blood. Your provider then injects PRP back into your body at strategic areas of diseased tissue, an injury, or chronic pain.
Joints and muscles are common sites for PRP injections. The injections take just minutes to complete and your doctor can use a numbing cream to make needle insertion feel comfortable.
You may not notice immediate results after PRP injections, as body tissues repair themselves over time.
Your Back to Life Integrated Medicine provider may recommend a series of PRP injections or PRP paired with other holistic treatments to help you achieve the most desirable outcome.
Don’t live with discomfort caused by an injury, limited range of motion, or chronic pain that reduces your quality of life. Schedule an appointment with Back to Life Integrated Medicine over the phone or online today to find out if PRP therapy is right for you.
