PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) therapy can be considered to be a way of self-healing, simply because it uses the patient’s own stem cells to heal their body and works on the principles of the body’s own natural healing capabilities. That being said, PRP in Pembroke Pines has been found by many patients to be a great alternative to invasive surgery.Screen Shot 2017 09 27 at 10.38.59

Q: PRP Pembroke Pines - Why do we recommend it?

A: Injecting platelet-rich plasma into damaged tissue turned out to be an effective yet minimally invasive treatment option used to relieve pain and other symptoms caused by the damage. When the therapy enhances the body’s natural healing abilities, patients are able to enjoy a faster and more thorough healing process that relieves symptoms and allows them to return to their regular activities sooner. And bringing our patients back to their full functionality is our mission.

 

Q: Is PRP Pembroke Pines a treatment with no side effects?

A: The risks associated with PRP are also minimal; an increased pain at the injection site is sometimes unavoidable, but the incidence of any other post-injection-related problems such as infection, tissue damage, nerve injuries, appear to be no different from that associated with cortisone injections.

Q: PRP Pembroke Pines - How does it work?

A: Blood is mainly a liquid (called plasma), but it also contains small solid components such as: red cells, white cells and platelets. Platelets are the major clotting tool in your blood but they are also rich in proteins called growth factors - and those are vital in the process of healing traumas and injuries. We can also say that PRP is plasma with a much increased number of platelets than what is typically found in blood. Most importantly, such a concentration of platelets (and thus - the concentration of growth factors) can be 5 to 10 times greater than usually found in circulating blood and has a huge healing potential when injected precisely into the injured body part. PRP in Pembroke Pines at Pain Care Specialist of Florida may be sometimes preceded by using ultrasound imaging in order to ensure accuracy of the injection.

Q: Which conditions which can be treated with  PRP in Pembroke Pines?

A: Clinical studies have demonstrated that PRP injections have the ability to improve function and decrease pain for various conditions, including - but not limited to - wrist, elbow, shoulder, knee, hip and ankle tendonosis. It was noticed that early work also shows promise for osteoarthritis. Interesting fact: It is known that famous athletes such as Tiger Woods or Rafael Nadal have undergone PRP treatment for various sport injuries including sprained knees and chronic tendon injuries. Usually, these types of conditions are treated with medications, physical therapy, and in extreme cases - even surgery. It is worth noting that PRP in Pembroke Pines may also be used to improve healing after surgery for some injuries.
