Conventional pain treatments offer only a Band-Aid to pain while surgery is risky with lengthy rehab. Regenerative medicine is now a great option for those who want hassle-free pain relief and function. PRP therapy or Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is a modern regenerative treatment that uses the patient’s own blood to treat sports injuries, degenerative arthritis and tendon and ligament injuries.
Experts at one of the leading pain clinics in Chicago, Premier Pain & Spine share why PRP therapy is an excellent pain treatment.
Platelet-rich plasma is derived from the patient’s own blood. PRP therapy injections used at Chicago’ Premier Pain & Spine clinic utilize platelet-rich plasma to boost the body’s ability to heal. The plasma comes from the patient’s own blood, so there is no chance of your body rejecting it. Hence, there are hardly any risks with this treatment.
The growth factors released by platelets recruit reparative cells, may augment tissue repair, and accelerate soft tissue healing. That is why PRP therapy can be used to treat –
- Lumbar spine (lower back) pain
