Benefits of PRP Injections
There are many benefits to using PRP injections as a medical therapy for various injuries to the body; the primary benefit is that PRP has been shown to boost the healing process for many types of injuries while also improving the restoration of mobility and reducing pain in those injuries. PRP injections have very few side effects, and most patients do not experience significant side effects aside from some pain at the injection site. PRP injections can help reduce the necessity of medications and anti-inflammatories as well.
PRP injections are especially beneficial for injuries such as rotator cuff tears, Achilles tendon ruptures, tendinosis, tendinitis, and other soft tissue injuries. These types of injuries typically require heavy doses of anti-inflammatories and opoid medications, so using PRP injections can help reduce the need for these medications and their potential side effects.
Platelet rich plasma injections can be beneficial for many types of injuries. If you believe your injury may benefit from these types of injections, consult with your providers about the availability of these injections as part of your treatment plan.
