What is PRP Therapy?
PRP is platelet-rich-plasma therapy. The therapy is a process placing your own concentrated platelet-rich-plasma directly to your injury site.
Why do the doctors at PainCARE use PRP?
Up until now, we have been limited in treating injuries that are bad enough to possibly need surgery. Everything else is just monitoring or making you feel less pain while the body is healing itself. There is no evidence that we can do anything to slow or reverse the normal wear and tear of the aging process, or at least lessen pain by promoting healing that doesn’t worsen as time goes on. We believe that utilizing PRP therapy may: provide a treatment option for injuries previously deemed untreatable, help heal chronic injuries, slow the progression of more serious injuries, decrease the overall time of healing and be an alternative to surgical intervention.
