How WE Get Great Results with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Theapy

PRP treatments are a safe and effective procedure that basically boosts your body’s natural healing response and focuses it on a particular area of injury — in this case, at the knee where the damaged tendons are.

In this procedure, some of your blood is drawn, then spun in a centrifuge, a laboratory device used to separate and concentrate the platelets from the other components of your blood. These platelets contain “growth factors” that stimulate the production of wound-healing cells. A solution with a concentrated level of these platelets is then reinjected at the site of the injury. This promotes healthy tissue regeneration and the quick, successful healing of the tendon tears.

WHY PATIENTS CHOOSE PRP Therapy FOR Shoulder PAIN

PRP will help treat shoulder pain associated with:

Arthritis:
Arthritis may easily be evaluated with basic shoulder x-rays. It typically causes diffuse pain that is worse with movement.

Rotator Cuff Tears:
Rotator cuff tears are common in athletes who play throwing sports and older adults with specific or overuse injuries. There are four individual rotator cuff muscles (ie supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor, and subscapularis) all that may be injured

Bursitis:
Bursitis in the shoulder is very common and causes diffuse sharp pain. It is worse when sleeping at night and causes pain when lifting one’s arm. It responds quite well to injection early in the course of treatment. Physical therapy helps prevent further exacerbations of pain by balancing and stabilizing shoulder muscles.

Irregular Shoulder Biomechanics:
Poor shoulder biomechanics or altered movements (scapular dyskinesis) of the shoulder manifests as chronic intractable pain. It may take years of seeing doctors prior to this being accurately diagnosed.

Myofascial Pain:
Myofascial pain or muscle trigger points are a very common cause of shoulder pain. It often radiates from the muscles around your shoulder blade, neck, and upper back.
