Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) January 02, 2013
National Pain Institute, the leading pain clinics in South Florida, are now offering cutting edge platelet rich plasma therapy. Termed PRP for short, the injections offer pain relief by helping to repair injured tissue rather than simply masking pain.
Platelet rich plamsa calls in an individual's stem cells to regenerate the damaged tissue. For more information and scheduling, call (561) 600-1046.
PRP has become state of the art for pain management West Palm Beach and all of Palm Beach County as regenerative medicine becomes mainstream. Most treatments currently have been successful at helping with pain by masking it, rather than actually correcting the problem. While these treatments, such as cortisone shots, are excellent at short term pain relief, they are not actually correcting the damaged tissue.
Platelet rich plasma consists of blood from the patient that is "spun down" into a concentrate of platelets and growth factors that have the possibility to repair damaged ligaments, tendons and cartilage. PRP actually calls in the patient's own stem cells as well which help in tissue repair as well.
To date, PRP injections have shown satisfactory results in preliminary studies, including a study by Sampson et al from a 2008 Current Review Musculoskeletal Medicine study. The PRP therapy was shown to produce good results for tendinitis of the elbow, hip, shoulder, knee, and ankle. Along with the soft tissue benefits, arthritis is also showing satisfactory results.
The Board Certified pain doctors at NPI offer platelet rich plasma injections as an outpatient treatment. NPI has a location in Delray Beach along with a Port St. Lucie pain management clinic. National Pain also has three locations around Orlando, a clinic in New Port Richey, and near Ocala as well.
