If you are the victim of a shoulder injury, you know how challenging it can be. Shoulder injuries are generally the result of damage to the tender muscles, tendons, and tissues that surround the shoulder joint. In some cases, there may be an injury to the bone itself. The end result is a loss of flexibility and pain. If your shoulder is giving you trouble, you will do anything to feel like yourself again. As you try to find relief from a shoulder injury, consider PRP treatment to accelerate the healing process. As your shoulder heals, mobility will improve and you will feel less discomfort.
Let Your Blood Go to Work on Your Shoulder
PRP is an abbreviation for platelet-rich plasma. PRP is naturally present in your blood. It’s an essential component that contains growth factors. It is responsible for healing your body as the PRP promotes repairs of any tissues that have been damaged in some way. For shoulder injuries, we can take samples of your blood for PRP treatment. The blood must go through a process in which it is separated. Once the PRP has been separated from the rest of the blood, it can be prepared for an injection. The PRP is then injected into your shoulder in order to treat your injury.
PRP Can Help You to Heal More Quickly
While PRP will naturally travel to your shoulder injury to help you recover, PRP treatment allows our specialist to inject highly concentrated amounts of PRP to an area where you need it most. PRP triggers the regeneration of cells in an area of the body that has been damaged. If you have suffered trauma to your shoulder, you are likely to have experienced damage to the ligaments, muscles, and tendons of this essential joint. PRP treatment can perform vital repairs more quickly as compared to letting your body heal at its own pace. As an added benefit, it is a natural approach that will aid your body in the recovery process. Faster healing means less pain for you and the ability to get back to your normal activities sooner. It’s hard to be slowed down by a shoulder injury. PRP treatment can get you back on track.
