How Much Do You Know About PRP In Marysville? October 8, 2019 PRP in Marysville or platelet-rich plasma is a new and exciting innovative treatment option for soft tissue damage, chronic pain, and other orthopedic issues. Blood is drawn from the patient’s own body from either bone marrow or fat tissue and put into a machine called a centrifuge to separate the blood from the platelets. These beneficial platelets are then injected directly into the injury or source of the pain. Platelet-rich plasma injections are a more natural type of therapy and are known to work exceptionally well in treatment for the following conditions: Arthritis and Osteoarthritis, especially in the knees Sprained or torn ligaments Bulging or herniated discs Sports injuries Hand injuries Sciatica Tendon issues Sacroiliac issues Chronic pain throughout the back, knees, neck or shoulders Stiffness, loss of flexibility or balance The platelet-rich plasma contains growth factors that help restore injured tissues and ligaments. When injected, it naturally triggers inflammation in the affected area causing collagen production to the injection site. Usually, several injections are required over several months, depending on the severity of the issues and for the best results and are also quite safe for patients. Some of the other benefits of PRP in Marysville are decreased levels of pain in the knees or lower back, lessened osteoarthritis symptoms, restorative hair growth, healing of runner’s knee, or plantar fasciitis and also the treatment of chronic pain with no harsh chemicals. Platelet-rich plasma treatment differs from traditional pain management in that it involves much less risk, and the results are longer lasting. This innovative therapy is very safe and has very few (if any) side effects. Some mild discomfort can be expected and often relieved by applying ice to the injection site or by taking an over the counter pain reliever until the healing starts.
