What is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a safe, effective and all natural way to heal damaged joints and soft tissue in order to alleviate chronic pain. PRP consists of a small sample of your own blood, spun in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets and then injected into the injured area.
PRP has been used for over 20 years in numerous surgical fields to enhance bone grafting, accelerate wound healing and reduce the risk of infection after surgery. Medical research and intensive studies are leading the way to the tremendous benefits offered by PRP for joint pain, soft tissue injuries, low back disc degeneration, and arthritis, with the goal of enhancing the body’s ability to naturally heal itself.
How PRP Therapy Can Help
When tissue injury occurs, platelets collect at the site and begin to repair it. By concentrating these platelets and administering them straight into the injury site, we can deliver a powerful mixture of growth factors exactly where you need it, dramatically enhancing your body’s natural healing process. This treatment may lead to a more rapid, more efficient, and more thorough restoration of the tissue to a healthy state.
The PRP injection is very safe– at most, you may experience very mild pain, stiffness or swelling. While any medical procedure carries a small risk of infection, since you’re using your own blood this risk is minimal.
Our specialists can determine if PRP is an appropriate option. Call today to schedule an initial consultation or learn more.
What to Expect from Your PRP Procedure
At Physical Medicine Of Oklahoma, we always start our PRP treatment with a musculoskeletal ultrasound. Ultrasound helps us pinpoint the exact location of the pain site, making the treatment much more effective for healing and pain relief. Because ultrasound is performed in real-time, our physician or physician’s assistant has the ability to watch on a monitor as the needle is placed precisely in the correct position for the injection. A local anesthetic will be applied to the area followed by PRP injection with ultrasound guidance to ensure that the appropriate target is reached.
Musculoskeletal ultrasound is an invaluable part of our regenerative medicine procedures and allows us to deliver the most effective treatment right where it hurts – eliminating the guesswork and helping us provide the best care possible.
+ How long does it take?
The procedure takes approximately one to two hours, including preparation and recovery time. Performed safely in a medical office, PRP therapy relieves pain without the risks of surgery, general anesthesia, or hospital stays and without a prolonged recovery. In fact, most people return to their jobs or usual activities right after the procedure.
+ Is there any pain?
Some patients report swelling and stiffness or mild to moderate discomfort lasting a few hours after the injection. This is a normal response and is a sign that the treatment is working. Over time, the affected area will begin to heal and strengthen and you will experience considerably less pain.
+ How many treatments will I need?
Regenerative medicine is not a “quick fix” and is designed to promote long-term healing of the injured tissue. While most patients require only one injection, the regeneration of collagen takes four to six months and may require multiple injections. Pain and functional recovery will be assessed two to three weeks after the injection to determine further therapy needs. The total number of treatments you will need depends on your age, the area being treated and the amount of pain you were experiencing before starting therapy.
+ Will my insurance cover it?
While PRP has helped thousands of patients over the years, it is still relatively new and as a result is not yet covered by many insurance plans. However, some parts of the treatment may be covered. Since the cost for and types of treatment required varies significantly from patient to patient, we will provide you with pricing info during your initial consultation, based on your specific needs and situation.
A physician from PMO will be able to tell you definitively if PRP is right for you. If it’s determined that you would benefit more from a different type of treatment, we also offer:
