Is mild to moderate joint pain keeping you from living life to the fullest?
Signature Medical Group orthopedic doctors are harnessing the power of PRP – platelet-rich plasma – to alleviate your discomfort and delay the need for you to undergo joint replacement surgery.
PRP enables orthopedic specialists to use your own blood as a healing agent. PRP involves a simple blood draw, after which plasma separated from the red blood cells and that plasma is then injected back into your injured areas. The potential side effects, after-effects, complications and risks are minimal and recovery is quick. In most cases, you are able to continue your daily activities directly after receiving a PRP injection.
Mild to moderate osteoarthritis of the knee, tennis elbow and jumper’s elbow are the most common injuries that benefit from PRP. It has also been used to treat professional athletes with common sports injuries like pulled hamstring muscles in the thigh and knee sprains.
Signature specialists are discovering that in most cases, a PRP injection benefits a larger percentage of patients than a corticosteroid injection does and that PRP produces longer-lasting freedom from pain and discomfort. Potential side effects of PRP are also less likely than with other joint pain treatments, and recovery time is quicker.
