Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment Birmingham and Warwickshire Provides Lasting Muscoloskeletal Pain Rel
What is Platelet Therapy? Platelet therapy or platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a revolutionary treatment that treats pain by promoting long lasting healing of musculoskeletal conditions using the healing power of your own body. This rapidly emerging treatment is showing ongoing success with osteoarthritis of the knee, shoulder, hip and spine, rotator cuff tears, chronic plantar fascitis, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries, pelvic pain and instability, back and neck injuries, tennis elbow, ankle sprains, tendonitis, and ligament sprains.
Our clinicains use this revolutionary therapy to help patients suffering with a variety of conditions and to further the understanding and science behind its continued development.
How is our PRP therapy different?
Here at Dynamic Regenerative Medicine we utilise state of the art equipment to create the highest quality customised Platelet concentrates. Furthermore, because we do it by hand, the platelets that are produced have far fewer red and white blood cells. It has been shown that contamination of the platelets with red cells creates a more painful injection and also produces less stimulation of stem cells. We find that carrying out the procedure by hand, results in a more highly successful treatment and one that requires fewer sessions to accomplish its goals.
How is our approach to the treatment different? There is no question that putting the right treatment on the right structure will create the best recovery outcome. We also know that true recovery can only happen when the joint integrity and strength is restored. Therefore we will carry out a fully comprehensive treatment of all the ligaments, tendons and joint capsules of that joint as part of the treatment. In this way we think we can give the injured structure the best opportunity to fully recover.
How does PRP therapy help? The body’s first response to injury and tissue damage is to deliver platelet cells. These cells are packed with growth and healing factors which have initiate repair and attract the critical assistance of stem cells . PRP therapy’s natural healing process delivers a higher concentration of platelets, amplifying healing and recovery. To create PRP therapy, a small sample of your blood is drawn (similar to a lab test sample) and placed in a centrifuge that separates the platelets. These platelets are then further refined and concentrated depending on their specific use. The concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) is then injected into and around the point of injury, kickstarting and significantly strengthening the body’s natural healing signal. Because your own blood is used, there is no risk of a transmissible infection and a very low risk of allergic reaction.
How long does it take? The procedure takes less than one hour, including preparation and recovery time. Performed safely in a clinical setting without the need of having to go to hospital. PRP therapy relieves pain without the risks of surgery, general anesthesia, or hospital stays and without a prolonged recovery. This also vastly cutting down costs. In fact, most people return to their jobs or usual activities right after the procedure. How often should this procedure be done? In the beginning, enough PRP Treatment is needed to be done to maximize recovery. The precise number of treatment sessions varies with the area that was injured, the type of injury, and your ability to heal. Generally you can expect between one and 4 sessions. You may, however, gain considerable to complete relief after the first or second injection. What are the expected results? These injections do not immediately remove pain. This is because the goal of PRP therapy is to actually heal you, the results are usually long term, often permanent. Initial improvement may be seen within a 1-2 weeks, gradually increasing as the healing progresses.
Research studies and clinical practice have shown PRP therapy to be very effective at relieving pain and returning patients to their normal lives. Both ultrasound and MRI images have shown definitive tissue repair after PRP therapy, confirming the healing process. The need for surgery can also be greatly reduced by treating injured tissues before the damage progresses and the condition is irreversible.
