Comprehensive Spine Center of Dallas is Now Performing Plasma Injections for Joint and Tendon Injuries
Platelet activation plays a key role in the body’s natural healing process. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injection therapy combines a concentration of the patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. In this way, PRP injections use each individual patient’s own healing system to improve musculoskeletal problems.
What are the benefits?
Orthopedic doctors use PRP to assist individuals with restoring tissue and reduce inflammation from injured:
- Cartilage and Synovium of Joints
The healing process for ligaments and tendons could possibly be a lengthy process, which in turn could make Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) an appealing option for individuals who have experienced injuries to these type of muscles. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a great tool to utilize for individuals that have a delayed response time to other conservative modalities such as ice, rest, physical therapy and medication.
The side effects of PRP injections are very limited since the body does not reject its own blood cells.
