Joints, connective tissue, and the muscular system work together to support movement and help you get around. When these parts of the body are damaged it can make movement difficult and even painful.
Medical Aesthetics of New England is proud to offer Pain Free PRP, a treatment that could repair damage to bodily tissue and make physical activity comfortable again.
If injury to bodily tissue has been limiting your movement, contact our office—located in Acton, Massachusetts—schedule a consultation, and find out if Pain Free PRP could work for you.
What is Pain Free PRP?
Platelets are present in your blood for the purpose of creating clots and speeding up the regeneration of injured tissue. Pain Free PRP works by taking a sample of your blood and increasing its concentration of platelets through a process called centrifugation. The blood is then reinjected into the injured tissue in order to facilitate healing.
The treatment is typically administered through two injections, though in some cases it may take three. In most cases, these injections will be spaced about a month apart from each other. There may be an increased feeling of uncomfortability around the area of injection for a while afterwards and in order to make sure the treatment works properly, it is recommended that you do not engage in strenuous activity for at least 3 days.
What Makes Pain Free PRP a Good Option?
Pain Free PRP has the potential to treat many types of injuries to bodily tissue. These injuries can include but are not limited to:
- Muscle Tears
- Ligamentous Injuries
- Joint Arthritis
- Torn Tendons
Pain Free PRP therapy has the potential to heal your body using its own bodily processes and, unlike a regular blood transfusion, there’s little to no risk of transmitting disease through the blood, because it’s your own. This treatment requires no incision into the skin which makes it accessible to those who are unable to undergo surgery or any other type of invasive procedure.
Is This Treatment a Safe Choice for Me as a Patient?
The first step to answering this question is setting up a consultation appointment at our practice. During this consultation you will have a conversation with one of our practitioners about what you’re specifically trying to treat as well as your medical history. Alternatives will be discussed if it turns out that Pain Free PRP isn’t right for you.
If you’re still curious about Pain Free PRP Therapy, contact us and schedule a consultation appointment. We look forward to the chance to help you heal.
