At Pain Care Specialists of Florida we are known for providing unparalleled patient care. From the moment we meet our patients for the first time, we focus on their physical progress as well as the emotional well-being. As a leading pain management clinic in Hollywood we find it important to inform our existing and future patients about the most effective pain management therapies available and help them choose the most suitable one for their condition.
A relatively new treatment, called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, is a treatment that relieves pain by promoting the long lasting healing of musculoskeletal conditions by using the body’s natural healing response. As a matter of fact, it can be considered as 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 Hollywood has been found by many patients to be a great alternative to invasive surgery. Let’s take a closer look at this technology.
PRP Hollywood - How does it work?
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 Hollywood at Pain Care Specialist of Florida may be sometimes preceded by using ultrasound imaging in order to ensure accuracy of the injection.
PRP Hollywood - Why do we recommend it?
Injecting platelet-rich plasma into damaged tissue is 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. If you are looking for PRP in Hollywood, Pain Care Specialist of Florida offer PRP Injections that are recommended to treat for speedy recovery for the following parts of the body:
- Ankle Injuries
- Muscle Tears
