Chronic hip pain can have a devastating impact on quality of life. Those affected often choose to avoid activities they once enjoyed. Ongoing discomfort may also lead to social isolation and depression. Now there is a new treatment that may be right for you. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, is a natural approach to reducing joint pain and improving function. This in-office, same day procedure can be completed in as little as 60 minutes. The process involves taking a blood sample from a client's arm and spinning it in a centrifuge. The spinning process removes blood platelets from the sample. Once separated, the platelets are injected at the site of injury or irritation using guided ultrasound. No sedation is required and the client is able to drive home immediately.
So, how does PRP work? The answer can be found in the blood sample. When your concentrated platelets are injected back into your body at the site of injury, the platelets break down and release human grow factor. It is this growth factor that results in a reduction in pain and improved function. For more information, and to find out if PRP treatment is right for you, go to www.regenesismedicalservices.com.
