The Benefits of PRP Injections

Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections, commonly referred to as PRP Injections, are a new innovative treatment method used to heal damaged tissue within the body. This form of therapy uses injections from your very own blood to heal injured muscles, joints, and more!

A doctor will prepare these injections by first taking your blood, then concentrating the platelets from that sample of blood, and then lastly, injecting the activated platelets into the damaged tissue. This process has enhanced the healing process as well as decreased the recovery time needed for the injured tissue to heal. PRP therapy has become a common technique used by doctors across the country. Luckily for you, there is a pain management doctor on Long Island at Integrated Spine & Pain Care that has a great deal of experience when it comes to PRP injections!

How can you benefit from PRP Injections?

This type of therapy has been extremely helpful for those suffering from chronic and acute pain. Using these injections has become an easier way to stop the pain without having to resort to invasive procedures, like surgery. They have also reduced the need for strong medications and anti-inflammatories. The negative side effects of PRP injections are limited due to the fact that the injection utilizes the patients own blood. This, in turn, causes the body to not have any issues involving the rejection of the blood.  

Common conditions treated with PRP therapy:

These PRP injections have been seen to improve function and decrease pain for people suffering from problems such as:
