At Hands On Health Wellness Center in Carrollton, TX, we believe that the body has a natural ability to heal itself and can be aided using the power of platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP). Whether you're suffering from arthritis or joint pain, our chiropractic care combined with PRP can help you experience pain relief that lasts.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a procedure that uses the growth factors found in your blood to stimulate healing and regeneration. Specifically, we use PRP for conditions of the joints such as:
Our Nurse Practitioner will obtain a sample of your blood which is then placed in a centrifuge for the PRP to be separated from other components. The process takes about 15 minutes and results in a concentrated solution that contains platelets, growth factors, white blood cells, and red blood cells. This solution is then injected into the area that needs to be treated for healing to occur.
Following your injection, you may experience some swelling, tenderness, or bruising at the injection site, but these should subside within a few days. You should also begin to notice an improvement in your symptoms, such as reduced pain and improved range of motion. It may take several weeks for you to experience the full benefits of PRP injections, so be sure to follow any instructions given by your provider.
PRP therapy offers many benefits, including:
Furthermore, PRP therapy is a safe treatment option with minimal risk for side effects or complications. It is a non-invasive procedure with a low risk of infection, and it can be a great option for those who cannot tolerate more invasive treatments.
