TREAT YOUR PAIN WITH PLATELET-RICH PLASMA THERAPY, AVAILABLE AT OUR SAN ANTONIO MEDICAL CENTER
The experts at Nurse Practitioner Associates can help treat nagging pain and injuries with platelet-rich plasma therapy, also known as PRP joint therapy. This treatment helps heal injured tissue by injecting platelet cells directly into the affected area. Injecting a small amount of platelet-rich plasma into these cells stimulates healing. All it takes is a small blood sample drawn from your body. The platelets in the blood are then separated by our technicians and injected into the specific areas where your body has the most pain.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy can treat joint pain safely without the need for surgery. PRP joint pain treatment has proven to be effective for osteoarthritis in the knee and tendon injuries. Joints and tendons that have been damaged by injury or age can be healed with a little bit of plasma taken from a patient’s blood. An injection right to the source of pain will help rejuvenate and heal the damaged tissue.
