Most people who have arthritis have resigned themselves to a life of managing pain rather than eliminating it. However, it's possible to get back to enjoying the activities you love and bid goodbye to the all-too-familiar persistent discomfort.
PRP therapy is a revolutionary approach that's showing remarkable promise. This innovative treatment uses your body's natural healing powers to relieve pain. It's an exciting development, not just for the potential to reduce pain but also because it’s a natural, nonsurgical approach.
Here at Liberty Pain Associates in Flower Mound and the Alliance/Keller office in Fort Worth, Texas, we’re proud to offer PRP therapy and offer a new ray of hope for those who are living with chronic joint pain.
Here, we explore the transformative possibilities of PRP therapy.
PRP therapy is a medical treatment that uses platelets, a component of your own blood, to help manage and heal injuries or pain in different areas of your body. These platelets are crucial for healing because they contain proteins that assist in repairing damaged tissues.
In PRP therapy, we draw a small sample of your blood and then process it to separate these healing platelets from other components of the blood. The result is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) — a concentrated version of your blood that is enriched in these healing proteins.
The platelet-rich plasma is then injected directly into the affected joint. The injection accelerates your body's natural healing process by stimulating tissue regeneration and reducing inflammation.
PRP therapy takes advantage of the body's inherent healing capacity by delivering a concentrated dose of healing factors exactly where needed, leading to pain relief and improved joint function.
Arthritis, particularly osteoarthritis, involves the degeneration of joint cartilage due to wear-and-tear. Without adequate cartilage in your joints, the bones can rub against each other, causing you severe pain.
Traditional treatments for arthritis-related joint pain focus on relieving your symptoms and slowing the progression of the disease. They range from medications, physical therapy, and steroid injections to invasive surgeries in severe cases.
PRP therapy targets the root cause of the problem. The growth factors released by platelets promote cartilage repair, potentially halting or even reversing the disease's progression. This possibility makes PRP therapy an exciting option for treating arthritis-related joint pain.
