What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP)?

PRP treatment involves injecting parts of your blood that are rich in platelets. The injections increase new cell generation and speed up healing naturally. 

This treatment improves joint pain and other common causes of musculoskeletal discomfort. It’s highly effective and long-lasting. PRP can even stimulate faster hair growth and younger-looking skin.

What is PRP used for?

Spectrum Pain Management might use PRP to treat:

  • Arthritis
  • Joint discomfort
  • Sports injuries
  • Work injuries
  • Car accident injuries
  • Knee pain
  • Neck pain
  • Back discomfort
  • Age-related tissue wear
  • Tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries
  • Pain after surgery
  • Wounds 

The skilled team may suggest PRP in combination with chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, massage therapy, spinal decompression, nutrition education, acupuncture, weight management, or other holistic pain-reducing solutions. 

Is PRP right for me?

To determine if you’re a candidate for PRP injections, the experts at Spectrum Pain Management check your vital signs, weigh you, and complete a physical exam. 

They discuss your medication regimen, symptoms, medical history, lifestyle, and more. If needed, your provider recommends blood tests, X-rays, or other imaging procedures. 

They answer any of your questions before you undergo treatment and let you know what to expect.

What can I expect during PRP treatment?

When you arrive at Spectrum Pain Management for PRP, your provider takes a sample of your blood. They place it in a centrifuge to extract PRP from the rest of the blood sample, increasing the platelet concentration of the blood.

Your specialist then injects the PRP into tissues that are painful, injured, or worn down. They might use painless ultrasound imaging to guide the injections. You may need multiple injections during each appointment.

However, there’s no downtime required afterward, so you can resume your daily routine immediately. 

What happens after PRP injections?

Temporary side effects associated with PRP injections include redness, swelling, or tenderness at the injection sites. While the results aren’t immediate, you should notice less pain and faster healing during the next few weeks. 

The Spectrum Pain Management team lets you know when to schedule your next set of PRP injections to achieve the best outcome.
