PRP or platelet-rich plasma is a holistic treatment that enhances your body’s natural ability to heal. Dr. Rosenblatt offers the procedure to relieve joint pain, back pain, and other aches or pains you might experience. PRP uses platelets (rich in growth factors) sourced from your blood to enhance cell regeneration.
Some of the numerous benefits you can experience after PRP injections with Dr. Rosenblatt include:
PRP is a holistic, natural treatment that may help you avoid taking addictive pain medicine or undergoing invasive surgical procedures.
To find out if you’re a good candidate for PRP treatment, Dr. Rosenblatt reviews your symptoms and medical history. He examines injured or painful areas and may recommend you undergo blood tests, X-rays, MRIs, or other imaging procedures to diagnose the root cause of your discomfort.
Chronic or long-lasting pain can result from sprains, strains, fractures, other injuries, inflammation, arthritis, and other joint problems. If your pain is severe or doesn’t go away on its own over time, see Dr. Rosenblatt for an evaluation.
There’s no special preparation needed prior to treatment with PRP. Dr. Rosenblatt takes a sample of your blood and spins it in a centrifuge to isolate platelet-rich plasma from the rest of your blood. He then injects PRP into painful or injured areas. The procedure is fast and virtually painless.
After PRP injections, you can resume a normal daily routine immediately. You may experience some redness or swelling at the injection sites. Dr. Rosenblatt may recommend a series of several PRP injections spaced apart over time and periodic maintenance treatments to offer the most effective, long-lasting relief.
The next time you experience back pain, joint pain, or another type of severe or long-lasting discomfort, call Steven Rosenblatt, MD, Family Practice, or simply schedule an appointment online to find out if PRP is right for you.
