PRP Therapy to Relieve Chronic Pain
Enduring chronic pain from a soft tissue injury can greatly affect the quality of your life. PRP therapy has the potential to bring you the relief you want without the painful surgical measures you don’t. Arthritis & Osteoporosis Clinic of Brazos Valley utilizes the latest in medical technology to heal our patients.
How Does PRP Therapy Work?
When soft tissue damage occurs, your body’s first response is to send platelet cells to the site of injury. These cells contain growth and healing factors that initiate repair and attract stem cells. Adding additional PRP cells to the site of injury through PRP therapy helps intensify and speed up the body’s healing efforts, increasing the concentration of platelets and growth factors by 500%.
What is PRP Therapy?
PRP Therapy, otherwise known as platelet rich plasma therapy, is an injection procedure that utilizes the power of a patient’s own concentrated platelet rich plasma and growth factors to assist and speed up the healing of orthopedic problems.
Am I a Candidate for PRP Therapy?
Ideal candidates for this therapy have mild to moderate ligament issues, tennis elbow or calcification. During your consultation appointment, one of our trained medical professionals will evaluate your injury and determine if PRP therapy is right for you.
What Can PRP Therapy Treat?
PRP therapy can be used to treat a broad range of orthopedic problems, including ligament issues, tennis elbow, and calcification. This therapy can also be used in conjunction with traditional treatments to enhance the repair of joints, cartilage, and tendons. It’s also useful in cases where injury rehab has proven ineffective on its own.
