Benefits of therapy with Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet Rich Plasma

Bodily tissues degenerate over time from everyday wear and/or certain lifestyle circumstances, like diet and exercise. Further, injuries or conditions like Osteoarthritis can become painful as the body struggles to cope without its full complement of tissues. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) uses the body’s own natural healing properties to reverse the effects of degeneration by creating new tissue. This procedure resonates with our approach of restoring health and functionality to the body while relieving pain.

While the providers at Austin preferred typically recommend non-invasive, physical medicine techniques, we also understand that more direct techniques are sometimes necessary for the best effects. It is for this reason that PRP serves as an excellent complement the renowned Chiropractic and Physical Therapy services we offer.

During the appointment, the patient first undergoes a simple blood draw. Once the PRP is prepared in our laboratory, it is injected into the sites of the patient’s pain. The procedure is quick, virtually painless and can produce lasting results where traditional modalities have failed. PRP is even considered a viable alternative to surgery in some cases and can be similarly effective with lower cost and a shorter recovery period.
