Mesa, AZ (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
The leading pain clinic in the East Valley, Arizona Pain Specialists, is now offering regenerative medicine with platelet rich plasma therapy. The treatment offers repair capability to many soft tissue problems and most recently pain relief for degenerative arthritis. For treatment call (602) 507-6550.
Platelet rich plasma is fairly new in pain management and orthopedics, but has a long history in other medical areas such as urology, wound care, and ophthalmology. Multiple major sports leagues in the US approve of its use, and the World Anti-Doping Agency has approved too.
Quite a few athletes have undergone PRP treatment, including Tiger Woods, Fred Couples, Dwight Howard, Hines Ward and Troy Polamolu. The treatment has been showing significant promise and good results in smaller studies for tendonitis, ligament injuries, soft tissue inflammatory conditions like tennis elbow and most recently, degenerative arthritis.
Multiple smaller studies have shown promising results, with the theory being that PRP actually repairs tissue, as opposed to simply masking pain. The treatment is performed as an outpatient, and takes about an hour overall. Currently insurance does not cover the treatment, but it is very reasonable as an out of pocket expense.
Arizona Pain Specialists has 4 locations throughout the greater Phoenix and Scottsdale area, with an East Valley location serving Mesa at the Chandler pain clinic. The center offers medication management, interventional pain management, chiropractic, physical rehabilitation, spinal decompression therapy, and acupuncture.
For those interested in PRP therapy, call (602) 507-6550.
