Is This Treatment Really The “Fountain Of Youth”?
That is exactly what some Doctors have called this amazing non-surgical treatment.
Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is an innovative, next generation procedure that involves the injection of extremely concentrated platelets that are used to speed up the process of healing injured tissue. This procedure is used to treat conditions such as Joint Pain, Back and neck injuries, Osteoarthritis, Foot Pain and Neuropathy.
How Does PRP Work?
Platelet cells are delivered by the body in a first response to a soft tissue injury. These cells contain healing and growth factors which begin the healing process and attract stem cells that are a critical component of healing. Platelet rich plasma therapy from Oklahoma Medical Clinic in Oklahoma City delivers a higher concentrated amount of platelets directly to the area that needs it, therefore intensifying the body’s natural healing process efforts.
How is Platelet Rich Plasma Created?
A small sample of your own blood is drawn and then placed into a centrifuge to create PRP. The centrifuge spins the blood at rapid rates which separates the platelets from other components of the blood. This produces a more pure concentration when handled manually by a lab tech. Since your own blood is used in the process, there is no risk of transmissible infections and very minimal risk of an allergic reaction.
How Long Does PRP Therapy Take?
This type of procedure usually takes less than an hour. Surgery is not needed and there is no anesthesia. Most patients are able to resume normal activity directly following the procedure.
What Are the Expected Outcomes?
Many patients experience relief of pain after the first or second PRP injection. Initial improvement can often be seen in as short as a few weeks and only increases as the healing process increases. PRP therapy in Oklahoma City is meant to resolve pain by healing and could prove to have very lasting results.
