Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapies offer real help in managing pain for patients. At West Knoxville Medical and Chiropractic in Knoxville, TN, we offer PRP injections that can speed healing and reduce pain. Here are some key reasons to consider PRP therapy from our team.
What Is PRP Therapy?
Platelets are instrumental in helping blood clot. These blood cells can also promote healing and speed up tissue regeneration. The process is simple and straightforward. A centrifuge is used to separate the platelet-rich plasma from other cells in your blood. The platelets are then concentrated and added back to your blood plasma, or the liquid part of blood. The concentrated PRP is then injected into the treatment area.
PRP therapies can speed healing for joint, tendon, and muscle injuries. PRP therapies can also reduce pain and stiffness associated with some forms of arthritis.
Choosing the Right Medical Provider for Your PRP Injections
Here are some questions to consider when choosing a qualified PRP therapist near you:
- Do you feel comfortable with the PRP provider on a personal and professional level?
- Is the equipment modern and well-maintained?
- How much experience in PRP therapy does the provider have?
- Will imaging equipment be used to guide the placement of PRP injections?
Our team can answer these questions. We work with you to determine if PRP is the right solution for your needs.
