Old injuries and chronic conditions can mean ongoing pain that is difficult to treat with over-the-counter medications or heat and ice packs. However, opioid use can be addictive and prove less effective as time goes by. More and more patients are finding relief from natural, safe, PRP – a treatment that uses your body’s own natural healing mechanisms to help regenerate damaged tissues and relieve pain.
At Thrive Health Solutions, we offer PRP injections for those seeking to manage pain holistically and safely.
When PRP is injected into the site of pain or inflammation, the growth factors can kick start your body’s natural healing mechanisms, going to work to repair damaged tissue and restore normal function. As inflammation goes down, the pain relief kicks in, and you can move without the tightness and pain caused by internal pressure and swelling. PRP therapy is a good option for patients for whom other methods, such as steroid injections and oral pain relievers, have failed.
