PRP Therapy(Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy)
From as long ago as 1987, doctors have used PRP therapy to improve recovery times after injuries or surgery. PRP stands for “platelet-rich plasma,” and its main purpose is to decrease inflammation and pain.
Originally, doctors used PRP therapy during open-heart surgical procedures. However, today, they use it for a number of other conditions, too. This includes managing orthopedic pain and addressing musculoskeletal conditions. It’s a successful treatment for many injuries. Often, it delays or even eliminates the need to have a more invasive procedure.
This type of therapy is effective and safe because of the high platelet concentration it involves. Platelets normally circulate through the blood and stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. By stimulating growth at the site of damage, it promotes rapid healing. It’s also a minimally invasive form of treatment and helps patients to regain their functions and to live without pain.
Here at Stem Cell Therapies of Oklahoma, we utilize autologous PRP. This means you only receive your own plasma. As a result, the procedure is very safe and involves virtually no risks. As our PRP doctors have also undergone extensive and specialized training, you can also be confident you’re in safe hands.
What Can PRP Therapy Help to Treat?
There are several uses for PRP therapy. It’s very beneficial in treating injured tissues that result from musculoskeletal conditions that involve damaged cells. From pulmonology to sports medicine, PRP therapy has numerous clinical applications. Over time, its use will only continue to grow.
Here at Stem Cell Therapies of Oklahoma, we use PRP therapy on patients suffering from several conditions, including:
- Chronic and acute tendon injuries, including tears, tendinopathy, tendinosis, and tendonitis
- Plantar fasciitis
- Achilles tendonitis and partial tears
- Patellar tendonitis and tears
- Tendonitis and tears of the quadriceps
- Hamstring strains
- Golfer’s elbow
- Tennis elbow
- Tendonitis and partial tears of the rotator cuff
- Sprains of the hand, elbow, ankle, foot, and knee
- Other conditions linked to nonhealing or scarred tissues
What Will Happen If I Have PRP Therapy?
When you attend your appointment, we collect a blood sample. Then, we put the sample in a centrifuge to separate the cells. This allows us to collect a high plasma concentration. We extract this plasma, which is rich in platelets, and inject you with it in the damaged area. This stimulates repair.
A PRP injection will only take minutes to carry out once the collection has occurred. You’ll also be able to go back to your regular activities immediately afterward. After just a single injection, many patients detect an improvement in their symptoms. However, some require a number of injections to achieve the best results. We will always schedule a follow-up appointment. At that time, the doctor will decide whether you will require any additional injections.
