Whether you are an injured athlete wanting to heal faster or an elderly patient wanting to prevent the natural progression of arthritis, PRP treatments offer a natural, safe and effective way to jumpstart your body’s own healing process. Continuing research (make it a link to the articles) over the last 10 years have showed the benefits of PRP in various musculoskeletal ailments.
Thus far, management including medications and steroid injections have focused on treating the patients symptoms, rather than helping heal the injury.
PRP, on the other hand, manages the source of the problem (whether osteoarthritis or other musculoskeletal injury) and helps promote healing which will in turn, help alleviate the patient’s symptoms. Interestingly, PRP has not received much encouragement from the pharmaceutical companies because your own blood, rather than medications, contains all the necessary healing and growth factors.
PRP has already proven its safety and efficacy. As research and evidence continues to grow in support of it, PRP will likely become the first line treatment not only faster healing of injuries but also as preventative care to slow down the progression of osteoarthritis (which eventually will effect us all).
