PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapy is an effective and safe method to significantly reduce chronic pain by repairing damaged joints and soft tissue. Bone tissues may degenerate because of several reasons, for example age and injury. PRP therapy is a non-surgical procedure that works to help the body regenerate these damaged tissues by giving it platelet rich blood. Plasma rich with platelets is a known booster for tissue regeneration and healing, and PRP therapy makes use of this very fact.
PRP is the perfect solution for people who experience decreased mobility or activity because of joint pains and do not want to opt for surgical procedures. The number of sessions required depends on a lot of factors, since regenerating collagen may not be a very fast process in all cases. While some patients can get treated in a single setting, a patient with older age and severe pain may require multiple injections.
PRP therapy has been in use for several years for curing lower back pain, Osteoarthritis knee, Achilles tendinitis, neck pain and muscle and ligament tears/injuries for athletes, aging people, meniscus problems and anyone whose joint tissues have been degenerated. Its growing popularity is attributable to its effectiveness in relieving joint pains without any side-effects.
