For those searching for a solution to soft tissue injuries or persistent pain, the knowledgeable, Board-Certified experts at Delaware Back Pain & Sports Rehabilitation Centers are excited to offer their patients Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy as a unique alternative to invasive surgical procedures. If you are unfamiliar with Platelet Rich Plasma – PRP – Therapy, know that if you are suffering from any number of painful conditions or injuries, this could be the medical treatment you have been searching for.
What is PRP Therapy?
Plasma is a component in our blood that contains proteins that assist with clotting and support cell growth. They’re considered the “first responders” – flocking to the site of injuries to help heal and regenerate healthy tissue.
Platelet-rich plasma – PRP, a supercharged version of plasma – is created by extracting plasma from a small sample from your own blood, then isolating the healing factors by placing the sample in a centrifuge. The concentrated platelets are combined with a blood sample into a mixture that contains between five and ten times more platelets than regular blood. Incorporating imaging technology, our trained doctors will inject this special plasma-rich liquid into the injured or damaged tendon so that it can work its magic.
A Cutting Edge, Non-invasive Procedure
A cutting-edge, non-invasive outpatient procedure, PRP Therapy has revolutionized the medical field with its unique brand of regenerative medicine. The use of this technology has increased in popularity in recent years – especially within the field of orthopedics – due to its ability to speed up the healing process, reduce inflammation, and provide pain relief. In fact, PRP Therapy is proving to be the treatment of choice for professional and elite athletes, and is now available to you at Delaware Back Pain & Sports Rehabilitation Centers.
Benefits of PRP
Tissue healing is certainly not the only benefit of this procedure – although, it does a terrific job of mending tendons, ligaments, and muscles. Considered a low-risk, non-invasive treatment, PRP Therapy provides rapid pain relief and regeneration of healthy tissues, all with less downtime, little pain, no scarring, and no incisions. There is no risk of infection or reactions from the PRP, mostly because the materials are drawn directly from your own body. Plus, most people can go about their normal daily activities after having the procedure, although your doctor will advise you on your specific recuperation period.
