Relieve Chronic Joint Pain With PRP

Chronic joint pain can significantly impact one’s daily life, making it difficult to complete even the most basic tasks.

Fortunately, there is a non-surgical, non-invasive therapy that can help relieve chronic joint pain, known as platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP).

Here are common causes of joint pain, and how PRP can be used to treat them.

Common Causes of Joint Pain

Sprained or strained joints: If you have sprained or strained your knee, ankle, or any other joint, the tendons and/or ligaments surrounding the joint have been injured, leading to severe pain within and around the joint.

Worn or torn cartilage: The cartilage acts as a protective layer between the bones of the joint, and as this wears over time, or gets injured suddenly, it can cause intense pain and an unpleasant bone-on-bone sensation.

Inflammation: Conditions such as tendinitis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and bursitis can all cause inflammation within and around the joints, which leads to nerve pain.

Degenerative diseases: Osteoarthritis causes the cartilage to break down over time, removing the protective cushioning between the bones and causing immense pain with a bone-on-bone sensation.

PRP Treatments for Joint Pain

PRP helps enhance the body’s natural healing response to encourage the recovery process exactly where it is needed, offering lasting pain relief in many cases. At Advanced Spinal Care & Rehab, our goal is to isolate the exact cause of your pain and treat it, rather than mask it with drugs or go the route of invasive, risky, and expensive surgery.

The first step in PRP is to take a small sample of the patient’s blood in our office and process it in a machine called a centrifuge. This spins the blood at a high speed, resulting in the plasma separating from the red blood cells.

This concentrated serum is rich in growth factors and many other elements that the body uses during healing.

This potent serum is then injected into the pained joint, where it works with the body’s natural healing response to encourage, enhance, and speed recovery through cellular communication and stimulation.

The body is allowed to do what it does best – repairing the damage at a cellular level, getting rid of damaged tissue, and growing new, healthy material in its place.

Platelet-rich plasma aids in relieving all types of joint pain including:

  • Knee pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Elbow pain
  • Hip pain
  • Ankle pain
  • Wrist pain

How Do Our Patients Feel About Us
  • "I’ve been coming here for a few months to help with my back pain. They have helped my physical health but also my mental health. It’s so nice to do some scheduled self care each week. The doctors and front desk staff are all so sweet and so welcoming. When you come in you can always expect a big smile and hello from Ann."

    - Eleanor H.
  • "First and foremost Dr John is the best human! I’ve gone through numerous different chiropractor practices and could not speak more highly about the service and care that I’ve received from Advanced Spinal Care. They’ve made treatment affordable and comprehensive. I’ve also had difficulty with being adjusted in a beneficial way in the past, but I don’t feel that way going to Advanced Spinal Care. No matter which team member I see I know I’m in good hands and I leave feeling better than before (which is huge for me). I definitely recommend their services for chiropractic care and physical therapy."
