WHAT IS PRP THERAPY?
When osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) and manual medicine aren't enough to resolve your pain and improve your quality of life, our team at Integrative Pain and Wellness Center offers a wide range of regenerative therapies to target your issue at its source. Of these holistic options, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is highly sought-after for a number of reasons in many medical contexts. Derived from the patient's own blood, PRP isolates the individual's growth factors, which are then used to create a personalized substance that is injected into the skin at the problem area. When performed by our skilled and knowledgeable team, PRP therapy can jumpstart the healing process and put you on the path toward less pain and better health. Reach out to our office in Southlake, TX and proudly serving the surrounding areas of Midland, and Odessa, TX to schedule a consultation with osteopathic physicians Dr. Matthew Barker or Dr. Melanie Gray.
CANDIDATES FOR PRP THERAPY
Men and women who have damaged tendons, cartilage, or other areas that cause discomfort and just won't heal on their own could be excellent candidates for PRP therapy. To fully understand if this is the right treatment for you, Dr. Barker or Dr. Gray will ask a series of questions about your pain, its intensity, the location of your discomfort, and your medical past. Individuals with certain conditions or blood clotting issues may not be suitable for this treatment. Once we have determined your candidacy, your personalized treatment plan will be created.
HOW IS IT DONE?
PRP therapy is performed at our Southlake, TX office. Your session will begin with a member of our team taking a small sample of your blood, which is then placed in a specialized centrifuge machine. This centrifuge machine separates the platelets and growth factors from your blood. The substance is then injected into the correct area, depending on where your pain, injury, or issue exists and can be precisely placed with the assistance of our ultrasound machine. Typically, PRP therapy is completed in an hour or less, and patients are able to go home the very same day. For best results, patients are asked to maintain light activity for 7 days after their injection and refrain from using any anti-inflammatory medications.
