There is a new, innovative and exciting approach to developing solutions to common health problems. It is a process that uses your own blood to help doctors find a simple treatment option for various health conditions you may be suffering with, and it might work to improve your overall quality of life as well. When a new procedure first hits the market, people tend to be reasonably skeptical. This is actually a normal reaction from the broader public even when a new treatment shows huge promise in resolving a long-standing medical problem. What is different about platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is that it helps improve and treat a wide variety of health issues that on the surface would seem quite unrelated. Yet, these conditions are inevitably related, because PRP therapy works to bring about a difference when it comes to making progress in treating these varied conditions.
PRP has been used to treat thinning hair, sexual dysfunction, as well as injuries. At Phoenix Regenerative Medicine we utilize PRP therapy to treat a range of conditions related to overuse and injuries.
How Does PRP Therapy Work?
PRP was originally designed to help patients heal faster after undergoing surgery. The platelet-rich plasma actually comes from your own blood. A small sample of your blood is drawn, which is then placed into a centrifuge and spun at high speeds until the PRP can be extracted. This is then injected back into the skin in the area where the treatment is needed. If you are suffering from tennis elbow, for example, we would inject the PRP therapy into your elbow.
The platelets stimulate growth and promote collagen production, which causes your body’s healing process to shift into overdrive. The uses for PRP therapy are still being discovered.
How Can PRP Therapy Help Me?
A few of the conditions we treat with PRP therapy include: ACL injuries, muscle tears, tendonitis, repetitive motion injuries, and rotator cuff tears. If you have an injury there is a good chance we can treat it.
If you are dealing with pain every day and you have a hard time seeing a solution to your problem, why not try PRP therapy? It comes from your own body so there’s almost no chance of an adverse reaction, and it’s completely natural.
