PRP Joint Injections
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is used to help heal patients who have injured tendons ligaments, muscles, and joints.* The patient’s own platelets are injected into the affected area in order to accelerate the recovery process.* Essentially, PRP joint injections utilize the body’s natural healing and re-growth process. At Abloom Med Spa, we offer PRP injections to treat all types of joint pain.
Benefits of PRP
There are many benefits from PRP joint injections, which is why they are regularly performed to treat patients across the country. PRP injections can last up to 6 months to a year or longer; therefore, releasing you from the pressure of having to go back to your health care provider multiple times a year.* Additionally, you should see a decrease in the pain that you once experienced in your joints.* You can also expect functionality within your joints to increase at the six-month mark.* Since PRP injections are a biologic treatment, patients will get better gradually. The effects of PRP injections last significantly longer than any pharmaceutical treatments.* This is because the blood you already produce is programmed to heal any tissue that has been damaged. More importantly, your body will not react negatively to your own blood, therefore the side effects are very limited.*
PRP is about a 30-minute procedure and is injected as soon as the blood and platelets have separated. PRP injections are also a great option because the treatment requires little to no downtime; you can resume your daily activities almost immediately.* The only exception is when you have injured yourself, then your physician will recommend that you rest the affected area.
