When you have a cut or another type of injury, the platelets in your blood are responsible for clotting your blood and also help to repair damaged tissues.
By isolating your platelets in a concentrated plasma serum and reintroducing it into the site of an injury, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy harnesses the healing properties of your own cells to reduce inflammation and repair injured structures naturally, without surgery.
If you suffer from pain due to a degenerative condition or an injury, it’s likely that the experts at Carolina Regenerative Medicine can successfully address it with regenerative medicine. PRP therapy is effective for many types of orthopedic conditions, including:
PRP is also useful for many types of neck and back pain
PRP therapy can help you avoid the ongoing use of pain medication and the need for reconstructive surgery. It relieves pain by increasing circulation and reducing inflammation. It also stimulates the production of new collagen to rebuild connective tissue and accelerates your overall recovery.
PRP therapy treatments start with a simple blood draw, similar to the kind performed when you need lab work. Next, your cells are processed in a centrifuge to separate your plasma and platelets from the other components of your blood.
When processing is complete, your provider numbs the target area and uses ultrasound technology to guide them as they inject the platelet-rich plasma into the site of your pain or injury. Every step of your PRP procedure is performed using sterile, FDA-approved, medical-grade equipment.
Once your injection is complete, your platelets begin doing their job healing your body. This natural healing process takes a little time, but over the next few months, you’ll notice an improvement in your symptoms. Eventually, you can be free from pain, and enjoy an increased range of motion and functionality.
