PRP Therapy

PRP Therapy in Shawnee, Kansas

You don’t have to live with chronic pain, relying on medication and surgery to function. It’s easy to see why PRP Therapy is becoming more popular: these non-invasive injections work with the natural functions in your body to address the root cause of your pain.

The benefit of PRP therapy is that you are getting to the root cause of your pain instead of masking the symptoms with medication.

  • Platelets in your blood contain healing benefits from hundreds of proteins, known as growth factors

  • Blood is drawn, then plasma is separated from other blood cells using centrifugation, resulting in a high concentration of platelets (5 – 10 times richer than regular blood)

  • When the platelet-rich blood is injected into the injured area, it promotes the healing functions in the body by amplifying natural growth factors

  • Ultrasound imaging is used to guide the doctor, ensuring the injection is placed in an optimal location

  • PRP therapy can support the healing of the musculoskeletal system: muscles, joints, ligaments, and tendons

Am I A Good Candidate For PRP Therapy?

Here are a few factors that are considered when determining if you are a good candidate for this therapy:

  • Traditional medications and treatments aren’t sufficient for relieving your pain.

  • You’re looking for solutions to address chronic musculoskeletal pain, including muscles, joints, and connective tissue.

  • Essential functions of life are disrupted because of chronic pain – affecting your relationships, home responsibilities, and career.

  • The increasing pain is overshadowing opportunities in the future.

​​​​​​​Since PRP injections enhance the healing process, patients can avoid common side-effects from medications. Since the platelets are created using your own blood, you don’t need to worry about the risk of an adverse reaction or rejection of the treatment.

How PRP Therapy Works?

When an injury occurs, the body sends a signal for help – with platelet cells coming to the injury site to support healing. The blood cells release growth factors that initiate the healing process needed to repair and restore the injured tissue.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy works with this natural function in the body by injecting the platelet-rich plasma directly to the injured area. As a result, it can accelerate healing and promote the recovery of poorly healed tissue.

The growth factors available from PRP Therapy injections help by stimulating tissue recovery. Cell proliferation is enhanced, collagen production is increased, and injections support tenocyte-gene and protein expression. As a result, the body can repair injured tissues more quickly and effectively.
