Activated PRP Therapy in Columbus
West Georgia Medicine to treat our patients with the most advanced treatments in the field of Regenerative Medicine.
What is Activated Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy and how can you benefit from it?
Activated platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a technique that’s being increasingly used to help aid a variety of conditions from arthritis to soft tissue injuries.
In PRP, there are high concentrations of platelets which contain growth factors from your own blood that are essential to stimulating and enhancing tissue regeneration and repair.
What’s the aim of this therapy?
To stimulate your body’s natural processes to heal tissue, regenerate and repair acute and chonic conditions.
By choosing our activated PRP therapy in Columbus, you can enjoy a pain-free life.
What Do PRP Injections Treat?
PRP injections can be administered to treat a whole host of sports injuries and musculoskeletal conditions, including:
- Knee pain caused by osteoarthritis, meniscal tears, ligament tears and sprains, bursitis, quadriceps muscle injuries, and patellar tendinosis/tendonitis.
- Hip pain caused by osteoarthritis, hamstring tears or tendonitis, bursitis, sacroiliac joint pain, labral tears, or injury.
- Shoulder and arm pain caused by osteoarthritis, tennis or golfers elbow, biceps tendonitis, A-C joint arthritis and pain, and rotator cuff partial tears, tendinopathy, and tendonitis.
- Foot and lower leg pain caused by osteoarthritis, ankle sprains, Achilles tendonitis or partial tears, plantar fasciitis, peroneal tendonitis, and shin splints.
Why Choose PRP Therapy in Columbus?
If you’re suffering from any of the aforementioned conditions and other treatments aren’t providing you with any relief, it may be time to consider PRP injections.
As a cost-effective, minimally-invasive alternative to surgery, it helps heal your tissues naturally with minimal, if any, scarring. It also means you aren’t relying on ongoing medication.
Furthermore, PRP can also help prevent your tissues from degenerating further and may lessen how severe your arthritis is.
And the best bit?
You don’t need to miss work or your favorite activities while you’re recovering.
How Does PRP Therapy Work?
A sample of your blood is placed in a specialist machine known as a centrifuge. At high speeds, this spins the blood in order to separate it so the platelets can be taken from the sample.
Once ready, we’ll inject the PRP into and around the injured area, boosting your body’s regenerative ability from 6% to 94%.
All of this takes no longer than 15 minutes but significantly increases the growth factors and platelets in your blood – by up to 500%!
Reaping the Benefits of Your PRP Therapy
In order to maximize the results, you aren’t able to use non-steroid anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) a day before and a day after the therapy.
While this isn’t a quick fix, you should start to notice improvements even after your first injection, vastly reducing your chances of requiring surgery or the continued use of medications.
