PRP, or platelet rich plasma, works like a superhero for the body. Platelets and plasma can be found in your body, and both have important jobs to keep you running at peak efficiency. Plasma refers to the liquid portion of blood, and platelets play a vital role in helping your body heal and prevent clotting.
Platelets also contain special bio-active proteins known as growth factors, which are directly involved in the process of healing in the body. PRP uses a sample of the patient’s own blood, and then processes it to concentrate the platelets to an amazing five times their normal levels or more. Using a centrifuge, the blood is able to build up the platelets, and can efficiently manage it to make it richer and healthier for the body.
The concentrated PRP is then reinjected into the patient at the site of injury to produce the natural healing mechanism. Due to PRP using the patient’s own blood, the risk of allergic reactions is eliminated. Premier Pain Institute Scottsdale has used PRP on many different patients, and the results have proved exceptional, with patients healing at an astounding rate by using Cellular Therapy Treatments.

- Back pain
- Strained ligaments and
- Soft tissue injuries including muscle injuries
Sometimes, PRP is used during surgery once the procedure is complete and before the incision is sutured to help boost the healing process so patients can enjoy a more rapid and natural recovery. Similar to using a jump start on a car battery, it gets the body immediately working in a healing mode.
The growth factors that are inside of platelets administer unique signals to tissues and cells found in the immediate area of injury, which can trigger cell regeneration and renewal processes. This process encourages the growth of new, healthier tissues to replace those damaged by disease or injury. In addition to these responses at the tissue and cellular level, PRP injections also inspires regional healing responses so patients can enjoy a speedier recovery and more consistent, and natural healing overall. The experts at Premier Pain Institute have used PRP to help patients with joint, back, neck, and spinal problems, as well as those dealing with arthritis and other ailments.
