Football season has just begun and already the injury reports are filling up.
This, of course, is in addition to the end of the school year and the everyday home or work injuries that can occur at any moment.
When injuries arise, so much of the sufferer’s focus goes to the daunting recovery process.
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy works to assist the initial treatment to jump-start your rehab journey. PRP therapy is so natural, because it utilizes the patient’s own blood, that it can be used in tandem with most operations to promote the release of the vital healing and growth factors the body needs for a quick and effective recovery.
These growth factors, such as stem cells and collagen, are the body’s natural proponents of tissue and tendon repair. By stimulating the release of these healing components, PRP drives forward the entire rehabilitation process and helps ensure a complete and successful recovery.
PRP Therapy Process
Consult with your local Pembroke Pines Orthopedic Surgeon to see if PRP therapy can assist your specific ailments. Your clinician will go over the procedure to keep you informed and comfortable.
The procedure begins with a simple blood draw. Patients will feel slight pressure, in line with your standard shot. The drawn blood will be sent through a centrifuge to isolate the platelets. The centrifugation will take around 20 minutes. This process of centrifugation creates a concentration of platelets that is 5 times that of our normal blood, hence the name of the procedure.
Once the platelets have been isolated, they are then reintroduced into the body through an injection. The injection is highly controlled which allows Palmetto sports medicine specialists and orthopedic surgeons to deliver pain relief and injury rehabilitation directly to the affected areas.
Before and after patients receive corrective or reconstructive surgery, all they could do is rest. Now patients suffering from joint pain from arthritis, rotator cuff tears, ligament strains and more have a solution to kickstarting the recovery process before they get to physical therapy.
PRP gives patients the ability to expedite the healing process by sending the body’s own healing factors to the injured area. It’s the natural response to wounds, sprains and tissue tears, just faster. This allows busy professionals, whether they be professional athletes or nurse practitioners, to get back to their jobs in a timely manner.
Consider PRP therapy if you have any of these injuries or ailments:
- Carpal Tunnel
- Joint pain
- Ligament tears or sprains
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Rotator cuff injury
- Shoulder pain
- Spine dysfunction or pain
- Tennis Elbow
