Treating the Root Cause of Your Pain with Platelet Rich Plasma Injections
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) addresses the underlying cause of your pain, so you can experience long-term relief without the side effects of risky surgeries or medication.
When you cover up pain with medication, you’re not addressing the underlying problem, and the pain will reappear every time your medication wears off.
If you opt for surgery as a method of pain relief, you’re looking at lengthy recovery times and painful rehabilitation that may not completely fix the problem.
PRP therapy consists of minimally invasive injections into your damaged or degraded tissue, making it a viable alternative to conventional surgery or pain medication cycles.
Conditions we have successfully treated using PRP injections include:
- Shoulder Pain
- Knee Pain
- Back Pain
- Hip Pain
- Elbow Pain
- Foot Pain
- Neck Pain
- Sports Injuries
- And More
If you’re in pain on a regular basis but are hesitant to agree to surgery and don’t like the idea of masking the symptoms with pain medication, get in touch with us so we can explain the benefits of platelet rich plasma in more detail.
PRP Therapy for Urinary Incontinence
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy has emerged as a promising and innovative treatment option for urinary incontinence, a condition that affects millions of individuals, particularly women, worldwide.
Urinary incontinence is characterized by the involuntary leakage of urine, often resulting from weakened pelvic floor muscles or other anatomical factors. PRP therapy, originally popularized in the field of sports medicine and orthopedics, involves the injection of a concentrated solution of a patient’s own platelets into the targeted area.
In the context of urinary incontinence, PRP is primarily used to stimulate tissue regeneration, enhance muscle strength, and promote overall tissue health within the pelvic region. The mechanism behind PRP therapy for urinary incontinence is multifaceted. Platelets are rich in growth factors and cytokines, which play a crucial role in tissue repair and regeneration.
When injected into the pelvic floor muscles, these growth factors promote the development of new blood vessels, collagen, and muscle tissue. This rejuvenation and strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles can lead to improved urinary control and reduced episodes of incontinence.
How Does PRP Therapy Work?
PRP therapy is a relatively simple procedure that yields big results. First, we draw a small sample of your blood and spin it in a centrifuge.
As the blood sample spins, the red blood cells and the platelets are separated, leaving us with highly concentrated platelet rich plasma that contains important healing properties.
This PRP is then injected into your damaged or injured tissue. It works with your body’s own natural healing mechanism to resolve the underlying cause of your pain.
The fact that platelet rich plasma comes from your own blood means you don’t have to worry about side effects. There is little to no risk of your body rejecting the treatment.
The nature of the treatment also means there’s little to no downtime afterward. You can get on with your day once your appointment is over.
