Platelet Rich Plasma therapy, known as PRP therapy for short, is a revolutionary treatment method that has numerous benefits to help alleviate the most challenging symptoms associated with injury, hair loss, and many degenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease. While this treatment method has numerous benefits, you may be wondering what to expect from it if you are considering it.
First and foremost, it would be helpful to have a general idea of how PRP therapy works before taking the leap. PRP therapy works by deriving the Platelet Rich Plasma from our bodies. Once this is done, the concentrated serum can be injected directly into the area of concern. If you are considering your candidacy for PRP therapy, there are a few things you can expect from your treatment.
PRP therapy may help in preventing surgical intervention for an accidental or sports-related injury. By boosting the body’s own healing properties in an all-natural way, your body may begin to heal itself rapidly while decreasing pain and strengthening bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Hair regrowth is also possible with PRP therapy. If you have been experiencing hair loss as the result of pattern baldness, alopecia, or hormonal imbalances and have tried every treatment possibility under the sun to no avail, this may assist you in stimulating your hair follicles and encouraging growth once more. Additionally, PRP therapy will strengthen your hair and help it to grow back fuller.
Arthritis is known for being a highly painful condition. If you have tried other physician recommended treatments for arthritis but notice the condition and its symptoms worsening, consider PRP therapy as a way to effectively treat the condition.
PRP may help to reduce recovery time for injuries as well. If you are actively receiving physical therapy but feel as if your progress is slow-going, PRP therapy can help to repair your injury and decrease your healing time significantly.
While not for everyone, PRP therapy is certainly a beneficial treatment for those who need it most. Contact us today at Phoenix Regenerative Medicine in Phoenix, AZ for a consultation to learn more.
