Platelet rich plasma helps repair tendonitis, ligament injury and even arthritis!
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) December 31, 2012
The best pain clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona Pain Specialists, is now offering regenerative medicine injections with platelet rich plasma therapy. The PRP injections represent cutting edge technology in pain management and are showing excellent results for tendon and ligament injuries along with arthritis pain. Those interested should call (480) 535-7370.
Arizona Pain Specialists continually offers ground breaking technology to patients that is effective and safe. Platelet Rich Plasma is a technology that utilizes a patient's own blood. The blood is spun down using a centrifuge into plasma containing platelets and growth factors. The resulting solution, PRP, is reinjected into the patient's problem area, which helps repair the damage.
There have been numerous studies performed on PRP therapy, and according to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons three professional sports leagues now approve of the use of platelet rich plasma treatment. The therapy is being used to treat tendon injury such as rotator cuff tendonitis, achilles tendonitis, knee, hip and elbow injury.
Along with tendon damage, ligament injuries are also being helped with PRP. This includes the collateral ligaments of the knee and more. Recently, the use of PRP has extended to arthritic conditions as well.
"Platelet rich plasma is great because the risks are low and the treatment calls in the body's own stem cells. So they turn into a form of stem cell injection therapy, and results in initial studies are showing extremely promising results," said David Greene, CEO of the Arizona Pain Network.
Along with providing pain management Scottsdale trusts, Arizona Pain also has clinics in Glendale and Chandler. This makes it convenient to serve those in Phoenix, Mesa, Gilbert, Tempe, Surprise, Goodyear and surrounding areas.
