How PRP Therapy Works to Treat the Underlying Cause of Your Pain
Platelet-rich plasma helps relieve pain by helping your body’s own healing mechanism address the underlying cause of the pain, so that issue is resolved. Once the problem causing the pain is gone, the pain will also be gone as a by-product. This approach differs from the conventional medicine idea of masking the pain with medication. When you simply numb your pain receptors, the real issue is never addressed, and it will continue indefinitely.
To create PRP, a sample of your blood is drawn and put into a centrifuge, where it spins at high speed. As it spins, the platelets in your blood separate from the red blood cells. These new platelets are highly concentrated with healing properties, and once injected into the area of need, it helps your body’s healing process resolve the root cause of the pain.
When you have a platelet-rich plasma injection, the procedure itself is minimally invasive, and there is little to no downtime associated with the treatment. Most of the time, you can get back to your normal routine immediately after the treatment.
Many people find this non-surgical, drug-free method of pain relief a refreshing change from the way things are normally done, as so many of the common side effects and issues are no longer relevant.
