Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP Therapy)
PRP is an advanced treatment modality to repair injured tissue. Leading the way in cutting edge modalities, the Palm Beach Spine & Diagnostic Institute offers yet another minimally-invasive solution for repairing damaged or inflamed structures in the body. A platelet rich plasma injection is used to initiate the regenerative effects of our body’s own healing powers. Platelets have been found to store the chemicals responsible for healing. By concentrating these bioactive substances, healing can be initiated in structures normally unable to heal naturally.
How Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Works
When under the care of the Palm Beach Spine & Diagnostic Institute, our Board Certified Physicians will perform thorough diagnostic studies to properly deduce the root of your pain. Once you have met with our Physicians face-to-face to discuss your treatment, it may be determined that platelet rich plasma injection therapy is a viable remedy to the pain you are experiencing. A platelet rich plasma injection is all natural, containing no additives, and the process entails extracting blood from the patient’s arm to be placed into a centrifuge apparatus. This device spins at high speeds, which in turn creates plasma that contains a rich concentration of platelets. These platelets are then re-injected into the specific joints, tendons, and ligaments that ail you.
Once in your system, the plasma rich platelets will be attracted to the damaged area, producing healing proteins called “growth factors” that stimulate the body’s natural healing and regeneration process; the result is a faster, more advanced healing process. There are currently no known side effects of PRP therapy, though there is some painful swelling involved. Fortunately, once this pain quickly subsides, you can say goodbye to your joint pain.
