What Makes PRP Therapy So Effective?

Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) has grown quite popular in recent years because of its convenient outpatient application and effectiveness in getting your body to heal itself with its own blood cells.

If you’re curious about PRP therapy, our team at Integrative Primary Care is here to answer any questions you may have. Our mission is to provide you with the best primary care treatment available, including some groundbreaking treatments, like PRP therapy.  

What PRP therapy is and how it works

PRP therapy is a simple outpatient procedure in which we take a sample of your blood, run it through a centrifuge to separate the platelets, create a serum, and then inject it into the area of your body that needs treatment.

Because your blood contains proteins that promote healing in areas of damage, platelet-rich plasma helps reduce inflammation and initiate repair in damaged tissues. PRP therapy stimulates your body’s own healing properties, as a PRP injection contains 5-10 times the concentration of platelets that your body normally produces.

Some benefits of PRP injections

The nice thing about PRP therapy is that it has demonstrated improved function and reduced pain in those who used the treatment. It also decreases the need for anti-inflammatories, like NSAIDS (ibuprofen) or steroids and opioids, which can be habit-forming and incredibly damaging.

What’s more, because the solution used in PRP injections comes naturally from your own body, side effects are limited, because your body does not treat the solution as a foreign element.     

How PRP therapy can help you heal

PRP therapy is effective for healing a number of issues due to its anti-inflammatory and cell-repairing qualities. These uses include:

Many of these painful issues and cosmetic concerns have traditionally been approached with expensive and invasive treatments requiring lengthy recovery time, but with platelet-rich plasma therapy, you can start seeing excellent results in much less time.
