For millions of Americans, joint pain is an unwelcome part of daily life. In fact, a national study found that approximately 30 percent of adults reported having joint pain within the last 30 days. No one wants to live this way. And you shouldn’t have to.
While traditional treatment includes prescription medication and steroid injections, platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy has shown to be a promising, natural treatment option to reduce joint pain and swelling.
Understanding Joint Pain
Your joints connect the bones in your body. As their role is to provide support and help you move, an injury or disease that causes joint damage can dramatically affect your range of motion and overall quality of life.
Joint pain is common, particularly as you age. A variety of conditions can contribute to joint pain such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, strains and sprains. Knees, shoulders and hips are the most common areas for joint pain, but the problem can occur in any part of your body.
Joint pain can range from mild to debilitating and can vary in duration from short-term to chronic.
How Can Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Help?
At IMAC Regeneration Centers, our goal is to reduce joint pain and inflammation and to improve function using PRP therapy. This type of regenerative medicine isolates your body’s natural healing factors and delivers them right where you need them.
As the leading PRP therapy clinic in the nation we use a form of platelet rich plasma known as “Pure PRP,” due to its high concentration of platelets and the growth factors retrieved in the harvesting process.
During PRP therapy, we take a tube of your own blood, spin it in a centrifuge and then inject activated platelets into the affected joint. Clinical studies have shown that PRP therapy has improved function and decreased pain to joints, muscles and connective tissue. What’s more it does so without you having to rely on pain medication or long-term steroid use.
