Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy Q & A
What is PRP therapy?
If you suffer from an injury, chronic pain, arthritis, or aging-related skin concerns and you desire noninvasive solutions, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy might be for you.
PRP therapy is a form of regenerative medicine available at Back to Basics Medical Practice PLLC. The team uses platelets from your blood to enhance healing and relieve pain without surgery.
Because PRP injections are noninvasive, they are popular alternatives to surgery and other invasive procedures. Dr. Patterson has utilized PRP treatments for years.
What are the benefits of PRP therapy?
Choosing a series of PRP injections at Back to Basics Medical Practice PLLC can help you reap the following benefits
- Improved arthritis symptoms
- Skin revitalization
- Less chronic pain
- Enhanced healing
- Less inflammation
- Better range of motion and mobility
Because PRP injections are noninvasive, there’s no downtime associated with these procedures.
Is PRP therapy right for me?
To determine if PRP therapy is the right procedure for you, Dr. Patterson reviews your medical history and discusses your symptoms. They complete a physical exam and might utilize blood tests and imaging procedures, such as X-rays or MRIs, to diagnose your condition.
What should I expect during treatment?
Prior to PRP treatment, the Back to Basics Medical Practice PLLC team evaluates your vital signs. If you require PRP injections, your provider takes a blood sample from your arm and spins it in a centrifuge to extract PRP from the rest of your blood.
Dr. Patterson injects PRP into areas of your body that are injured, diseased, aging, painful, or inflamed.
What happens after PRP therapy?
After regenerative medicine treatment at Back to Basics Medical Practice PLLC, you might experience slight redness or swelling at the injection site. You can resume normal activities right away because there's no downtime associated with the procedure. Dr. Patterson might recommend multiple treatments to help you achieve optimal results.
