If you have suffered an injury or are suffering from pain that is originating in soft tissue, you should ask our team at WellnessPlus Medical Center about how PRP therapy can be used for pain management. It is a safe, natural, and effective treatment to promote healing in a way that alleviates the pain without having to rely so much on drugs that you would rather not have to take.
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. It is a method of promoting healing that uses substances from the patient’s own body. A blood sample is drawn from the individual. It is then put into a unit called a centrifuge machine that spins it at a high rate of speed. Doing so separates the components so that the platelets can be used for pain management. The platelets are skillfully injected into the tissue near where the pain is originating. It will speed up the healing process and provide some pain relief at the same time.
There are a number of advantages provided by this type of therapy that are not available with other methods. For one, it is an attractive option for individuals who want to go with natural solutions. How much more natural can something be when it is taken from the patient’s own body?
Individuals who are concerned about an allergic reaction to a medication need not fear when they are receiving PRP therapy for pain management. Since the solution is made from their own blood, nothing is being put back into the body that wasn’t already present. It is simply redistributing some of the platelets where they can be concentrated in the areas that need them most for pain relief or healing.
