It is an open fact that professional athletes have access to state-of-the-art medical care that many regular individuals do not. In the locker room, there are sports doctors who may assist them in maintaining optimal health for peak performance. The benefits of regenerative therapies, such as PRP injections, are available to all of our patients at Specialty Care Clinics you do not, however, need to be a superstar athlete to take advantage of them.
A sportsperson who received regenerative treatment for their shoulder reported pain and restriction from a strained muscle injury, which may have had an impact on their performance. Four days after receiving treatment, he reportedly sought a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection to encourage quicker healing. He then returned to throwing on the practice field.
PRP INJECTIONS AND THEIR BENEFITS
You can receive the same degree of medical care as an athlete even though you may not have signed a contract for hundreds of millions of dollars. We offer PRP injections to all of our patients, both young and old, so they are not just for the wealthy and famous. PRP is created using a little amount of your blood, which is centrifuged to remove the platelets and growth factors that can help with tissue repair and healing. We provide PRP injections to assist with :
- Joint pain and arthritis
- Sprains and strains
- Cartilage damage
- Rotator cuff tears
- Plantar fasciitis
- Tennis/golfer’s elbow
The majority of your blood is composed of plasma, a salty, protein-rich fluid. Additionally, your blood has a number of solid components, such as platelets, and red, and white blood cells.
Your organs and tissues are nourished by the oxygen that is carried by your red blood cells from your lungs. Your immune system’s warriors, the white blood cells, attack intruders and ward off infection. When you are hurt or wounded, your body uses platelets to coagulate your blood so that you may start to recover and restore yourself.
Numerous growth factors, such as platelet-derived growth factors and insulin-like growth factors, are present in platelets and help to speed up the healing of wounds.
A physician makes platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your blood when preparing it for injection into the site of your injury. In order for your body to quickly heal your injuries and regain function, the dense concentration of platelets—about five times the normal concentration—kickstarts the healing process.
PRP injections can be used in a variety of ways to alleviate pain and enhance performance. PRP treatments might be the answer to enhancing your quality of life and performance, whether you’re a weekend warrior preparing for a 5K marathon or just want to lessen your knee arthritis pain.
PRP REDUCES JOINT PAIN AND DYSFUNCTION
When the cartilage that protects your joint bones from rubbing against one another and cushions them breaks away, osteoarthritis, a disorder, develops. If you throw a ball, kick a ball, or play an instrument repeatedly, your cartilage may deteriorate as you age or from repetitive use.
Growth factors and other healing agents, like cytokines, are injected into your damaged cartilage by a physician, and these substances encourage the cartilage cells to divide and create new blood vessels. Collagen, a long-strand protein that keeps your new cartilage tissues tough and moist, is also produced in greater quantities by your body.
PRP therapy, according to research, helps both men and women with osteoarthritis by reducing pain, and stiffness, and preserving function. In order to feel better, most men and women need at least two injections.
