Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) December 27, 2012
Leading Phoenix pain management clinic, Arizona Pain Specialists, is now offering ground breaking platelet rich plasma therapy. The treatment has shown excellent pain relieving results to date for spinal, hip, knee, ankle, elbow and shoulder pain. Those interested should call (602) 507-6550 for more information and scheduling.
Platelet rich plasma, also known as PRP, is an outpatient treatment that involves a simple blood draw from a patient's arm. The blood is then spun through a centrifuge, and the result is a solution of platelets and growth factors used in the injection into the diseased area.
Conditions that are being treated with PRP include tendonitis, ligament injury, tendonosis and joint arthritis. There have been thousands of studies to date published on platelet rich plasma, and according to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons three of the major professional sports leagues have approved the use of PRP.
"The Holy Grail of pain management is regenerative medicine. To date, most pain treatments help with the symptoms but do not repair the problem area. Platelet rich plasma is showing potential for regenerating damaged tissue and is very exciting," said David Greene, CEO of the Arizona Pain Network.
Arizona Pain Specialists has multiple Valleywide clinics serving Phoenix, Scottsdale, Mesa, Glendale, Surprise, Chandler, Gilbert and surrounding areas. The Phoenix pain doctors are Board Certified and Fellowship trained, and have won the Patient's Choice Award five years in a row.
PRP is a low risk treatment with tremendous promise for pain relief and tissue regeneration. Those interested should call (602) 507-6550 for scheduling.
