What Makes PRP Therapy So Effective?

No one likes to be in physical pain, but many suffer with it. In fact, just over a third of Americans report that they feel pain often or very often.

 Even though pain can come from many sources, it can cause problems with your muscles, joints, and tendons because they’re often slow to heal. 

For decades, corticosteroid shots have provided temporary relief, but these shots don’t treat the root cause of your pain. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy can solve the issue of pain and healing. PRP therapy can treat the source of your pain naturally and provide relief.

 At Lynx Healthcare in Albuquerque, New Mexico, pain medicine specialist Michael Pylman, MD, and the rest of our team provide PRP as a cutting-edge regenerative medicine therapy to heal your damaged tissues.

How PRP therapy works

Your blood serves as the component that supports clotting to seal a wound, and your platelets act as growth factors that strengthen your damaged tissues and help your body repair.

When your tissues get injured, your tendons, joints, and muscles can be slow to heal, causing a lengthy recovery period.

We withdraw a small sample of your blood and put it in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets, from which we make the platelet-rich plasma. We then inject this solution into the targeted areas of your body to promote healing and pain relief.

The concentrated platelets contain 5-10 times more growth factors than your blood. The PRP goes to work immediately, stimulating and supporting your body’s natural ability to regrow healthy tissue.

How we use PRP to help our patients

At Lynx Healthcare, we use PRP therapy to effectively treat a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, including:

If pain is a constant part of your life, we would like to talk to you about PRP and determine if it’s the best solution for you. If so, we can create a personalized treatment plan. 

The benefits of PRP therapy

We recommend PRP therapy due to its advantages. Since the injections come from your own blood, you have a very small chance of having any side effects. The therapy also accelerates your healing and recovery with no additional downtime and no surgery.
