Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a regenerative medicine treatment initially designed to speed up and assist your body’s natural healing process.
PRP is widely used in several medical fields. It works wonders for cosmetic concerns, especially treating sports injuries, arthritis, and sprained knees. PRP is so effective that it’s even used to assist in healing during specific surgical procedures.
Your blood contains a liquid called plasma and small solid molecules: platelets and red and white blood cells. As well as helping with blood clotting, the platelets have numerous growth factors that are especially beneficial for boosting cell regeneration and healing injuries.
PRP contains more platelets than what’s usually found in your blood. Republic Spine and Pain obtains the platelet-rich plasma through a special process that concentrates the growth factors until they’re around five to 10 times richer than normal.
The team simply draws your blood and separates the platelets before concentrating the platelets in a centrifuge device.
They then mix the concentrated platelets with the remaining blood and inject the solution into the target area. In just one convenient in-office session, the providers can administer multiple injections.
Republic Spine and Pain providers carefully inject PRP into specific areas to provide relief. This cutting-edge technology can accelerate the healing process for sprained or torn tendons and ligaments, ease spinal conditions, and even ease arthritis pain.
PRP also helps reduce inflammation and heal injury using the impressive power of your natural platelets and growth factors.
PRP is a convenient and in-office procedure with significantly less downtime than comparable treatments. Since PRP is a more natural treatment that uses your own blood taken right then and there, your body won’t reject it, so it’s both safe and successful.
