After your initial visit, the pain-relief experts at Vanguard Spine and Sport may recommend PRP Injections as part of a conservative pain management plan.
The PRP injection process starts with drawing a small amount of your blood, similar to a routine blood test. This blood is then placed in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets, which are key to the body’s healing processes.
The targeted area for treatment is numbed to minimize discomfort. When the PRP is injected, you may feel a mild pinch or pressure, but this is generally well-tolerated. Following the injection, it’s common to experience some soreness or swelling at the site, which usually subsides relatively quickly.
The full benefits of PRP injections typically unfold over several weeks. Our patients often report a gradual improvement in their symptoms as the body’s natural healing processes are stimulated by the concentrated platelets. Results include reduced pain, improved function in the affected area, and enhanced tissue repair. Each patient’s response to the treatment can vary, and some may notice more significant improvements than others, depending on the nature and severity of the pain-related condition.
