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 the accuracy of the injection.

 

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.

 

Which conditions can be treated with  PRP?

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 may also be used to improve healing after surgery for some injuries.

Which parts of the body can be treated with PRP?

If you are looking for PRP in Hollywood, Pain Care Specialists of Florida offer PRP Injections that are recommended to treat for a speedy recovery for the following parts of the body:

  • Hip
  • Knee
  • Shoulder
  • Ankle Injuries
  • Muscle Tears
  • Rotator Cuff Tears
  • Tendinosis
  • Tennis Elbows

 

How many injections per treatment?

The number of injections necessary for the treatment to be considered successful and complete varies and it is ultimately decided on a case-by-case basis. The physician may use the MRI or Ultrasound results to determine the number of injections. In most cases, the physician will suggest between 1 to 3 injections.

 

Is PRP treatment with no side effects?

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, and nerve injuries, appear to be no different from that associated with cortisone injections.
