Arizona Pain is now offering cutting edge PRP injections, which help regenerate damaged tissue by calling in stem cells.
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) December 19, 2012
Arizona Pain Specialists, the leading pain clinics in Phoenix and Scottsdale metropolitan areas, are now offering cutting edge platelet rich plasma injections. Also known as PRP for short, the regenerative medicine injections work well for relieving pain by recruiting the body's stem cells to repair the damaged area. For more information and scheduling, call (602) 507-6550.
Regenerative medicine with PRP represents the current state of the art treatment in pain management. Most treatments up until recently have been good at pain relief by masking the problem, rather than repairing it. While these treatments, such as cortisone injections, are excellent at short term pain relief, they are not fixing the actual problem.
Platelet rich plasma actually provides growth factors which have the potential to regenerate damaged cartilage, tendons and ligament. The treatment consists of using the patient's own blood from a simple blood draw, and centrifuging the specimen to obtain the platelets and growth factors in the plasma.
The PRP injection has shown significant benefit in initial studies, including a review by Sampson et al from a 2008 Current Review Musculoskeletal Medicine study. The injections are beneficial for tendinitis of the elbow, shoulder, hip, knee and ankle. Reviews are also showing benefit for arthritis as well.
Regenerative medicine with PRP represents the cutting edge in modern medicine for musculoskeletal conditions. It represents a different approach to treating painful conditions, and Arizona Pain takes pride in offering the latest therapies while taking care to preserve patient safety.
The Board Certified and Fellowship Trained doctors at Arizona Pain Specialists offer platelet rich plasma injections as an outpatient treatment. Phoenix pain management services are available across the valley serving Glendale, Scottsdale, Chandler, Mesa, Surprise, Tempe, Goodyear and more.
