Have you tried every possible treatment for your painful injury, but without much success? You may not have to resort to surgery just yet. PRP injections are an advanced medical procedure that can promote rapid healing from the inside out. At Rockwall Elite Healthcare in Rockwall, TX, our PRP injections can help you regain your mobility and enhance your quality of life. 

What are PRP injections?

A PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, injection is a modern medical treatment that can alleviate chronic pain and discomfort due to injuries or certain other disorders. PRP injections contain biological proteins that accelerate the body’s natural healing process. The treatments contain a concentrated dose of platelet-rich plasma that will promote faster cellular regeneration - and, therefore, a reduction in inflammation. 

What conditions can PRP injections treat?

PRP injections have been used to treat a variety of health conditions. Whether you are a professional athlete, a construction worker, or an arthritis patient, you may be able to benefit from an injection of platelet-rich plasma. PRP injections have successfully alleviated the symptoms of torn tendons, sports injuries, osteoarthritis, strained/pulled muscles, and more. Your medical practitioner can help you determine if a PRP injection could help you relieve your pain. 

How does the PRP process work?

Your PRP process will begin with your doctor taking a small sample of your blood. The sample will be placed in a centrifuge in order to separate the plasma from the blood matter. The concentrated plasma is then collected and injected into the affected area of your body. Results may vary, but most patients will begin to feel relief from their pain shortly after their initial injection. At Rockwall Elite Healthcare, we also offer a range of treatments that can supplement a PRP injection, including chiropractic, spinal decompression, and physical therapy/rehabilitation. Your doctor can recommend the ideal treatment plan to correspond to your needs.
