How the procedure known as platelet-rich plasma injections can provide safe and effective pain relief, even during pregnancy.
DALLAS, TX, November 04, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — Lower back pain, such as what patient, April, experienced, is a common complaint during pregnancy. Despite not having a previous history of back pain, April found herself suffering from it at the onset of her pregnancy. Her pain and stiffness were exacerbated after sitting or resting for long periods of time and after a long day of work. Although she would find brief respite in the morning, this chronic and frustrating pain would quickly return and plague her day after day.
Treating pain can be especially difficult during pregnancy, as women are often limited in what medication they can take and even what forms of exercise they can safely engage in. Thankfully, PRP treatments, or platelet-rich plasma injections, finally gave April the relief she had been longing for at 5 months pregnant.
The process begins with the doctor drawing a small amount of blood and using a machine in order to separate the platelets into a concentrated solution. This substance, which is naturally-occurring within your own body, is absolutely crucial in the body’s healing process. When the platelets are concentrated in order to create the PRP solution, it increases the regenerative properties of the body and promotes healing within the source of the injury. The doctor numbs the trouble area to be treated with PRP and injects it into the tissue. The procedure is minimally invasive, with little to no downtime, and most importantly, the procedure is safe, even during pregnancy.
What Other Injuries and Conditions Can Be Treated with PRP Injections?
Platelet-rich plasma injections can treat a wide array of injuries and conditions, from musculoskeletal conditions to cosmetic applications including:
