Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) And Your Body’s Ability To Self-Heal And Manage Pain

September 29, 2021

At the office of Palmetto Pain Management, we maintain a position at the forefront of advances in care to provide our patients with the highest quality of care.

Regenerative medicine is a relatively new and exciting area in medicine that offers enormous potential to alleviate the pain and improve function for individuals who have lost or damaged tissue due to injury, disease, or other conditions. As a result of research in regenerative medicine, several remarkable procedures, which promote the ability of the body to self-heal have been pioneered and developed. 

Regenerative medicine and PRP

Regenerative medicine is an umbrella term that includes procedures such as stem cell therapy and treatment with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Its primary goal  is to replace or restore damaged, diseased, degenerating, as well as aging tissue with new tissue by utilizing an individual’s own live cells, cell components, or products. 

Platelet-rich plasma, which gets extracted from a patient’s own blood, can help accelerate a stalled recovery and healing process when injected into abnormal tissue. It does this by promoting and releasing growth factors that recruit and increase the proliferation of reparative cells. 

The uses and benefits of PRP in our office

As experienced providers of leading-edge care, our professional team may recommend PRP treatment to address painful conditions, help repair damaged or injured tissues, and support healing.

PRP injections can help in the treatment of chronic tendon injuries, acute ligament, and muscle injuries. It’s useful prior to surgical intervention and to help with post-procedure tissue healing.
