The blood in the human body is known as plasma, comprised of red cells, white cells, and platelets. Platelets play an essential role in clotting when you get a cut. But platelets are typically rich in proteins which can be beneficial in healing injuries. Therefore, many orthopedic specialists like Some Orthopedics specialize in PRP Therapy as a safe and effective alternative treatment instead of surgery.
PRP therapy involves using an injection after drawing blood from the patient and passing it through a centrifuge to extract the platelets. Then, the patient's platelet-rich plasma is injected into the injured site to promote the healing of injured joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. Your physician may use an ultrasound to pinpoint the injured area for the PRP injection.
PRP treatments are helping thousands of patients in Beverly Hills and throughout Southern California to promote natural healing and reduce pain and inflammation of many musculoskeletal injuries, including torn rotator cuffs, Achilles tendon injuries, tendinitis, and more. In addition to helping patients avoid surgery, PRP treatment reduces the need for NSAIDs and other pain medications that can be addictive. Also, there are minimal side effects because your tissues are using their blood platelets to promote the healing process. The most common side effect is pain at the injection site.
