At Metro Pain and Vein Centers, we combine a number of treatments that can help manage your pain. From over-the-counter pain relievers, to physical therapy, to pain-blocking injections, we develop your treatment plan with both traditional and modern practices that can effectively manage your symptoms. This also can include newer treatments like PRP injections that, for many, can result in cell growth and tissue repair.
PRP therapy is one of the latest treatments used to improve cell growth and help you rebuild tissue that has been worn out or damaged with age, overuse, and injury. If used in the right conditions, PRP therapy can help regenerate tissue and replace older cells with newer, less inflamed tissue that can improve your mobility and your overall quality of life.
If you are experiencing pain, discomfort, and limited mobility due to musculoskeletal injuries or damaged soft tissues in areas like your neck, back, knees, and other areas, you may benefit from having PRP injections added into your treatment. Schedule an appointment with Metro Pain and Vein Centers to learn more about PRP injections and how it can help your condition.
Platelet rich plasma is a processed by-product of your own blood that has the potential to promote regenerative cell repair. Your blood contains platelets, which are blood cells responsible for clotting, repairing damaged tissue, and other cell growth factors. PRP injections are processed by isolating your platelets and then injecting them into areas with damaged soft tissue, where research suggests it can trigger faster and more effective tissue repair.
PRP injections are made by your own blood. To make a PRP injection, a physician will extract some of your blood and place it in a centrifuge. This will separate the different cells in your blood, with your platelets remaining in the plasma. Your physician will isolate the platelets and then inject it into the area with tissue damage.
Platelet rich plasma injections have been used to treat joint injuries that have resulted in damaged joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. It’s also used to treat joint pain and muscle pain caused by damaged soft tissue. Patients with arthritis may also benefit from PRP injections to help repair joints and surrounding tissue triggering pain.
At Metro Pain and Vein, our team explores all the latest techniques that show promising in helping manage pain. PRP injections may be a solution for some patients, especially combined into an effective treatment plan with other ways to manage other symptoms and pain triggers. PRP injections can take as little as 6 weeks up to 3 months before you see noticeable results, though some report moderate pain relief after just several injections.
