PRP for Chronic Tendon Injuries
Tendons play an important role in the body, including keeping the muscles attached to the bone. When your tendons are injured, you can experience a great deal of pain and suffering, including swelling, stiffness, burning sensations, and difficulty moving the damaged area.
Chronic tendon injuries can be difficult to live with and challenging to recover from, but there is hope. Dr. Tige Buchanan, Dr. Garofolo, Jennifer Aldamuy, APRN, at Buchanan Health Center, chiropractors in Leesburg, FL, offer PRP treatment services to help treat tendon injuries.
What Is PRP Treatment?
PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma therapy, is a form of regenerative medicine used to help the body heal damaged tendons, joints, and ligaments. After taking some of your blood, a machine is used to concentrate the platelets. This is then administered to the injured area. Your platelets have proteins and growth factors in them that stimulate tissue regeneration. A higher number of these proteins and growth factors go to the damaged tissue through a PRP injection, helping to speed up recovery.
The term PRP symptoms can refer to any condition or injury that PRP injections can benefit from. This includes but is not necessarily limited to the following:
- Shoulder pain
- Knee pain, including osteoarthritis
- Elbow pain
- Hip pain
- Rotator cuff injuries
Benefits of PRP Treatment
It has also shown to be effective in addressing arthritis, fractures, pain after surgery, auto accident injuries, cosmetic concerns, and more. PRP is not typically used as a sole treatment. Instead, it will be used in conjunction with other treatment methods, such as physical rehabilitation, chiropractic care, massage therapy, and trigger point therapy. Combining PRP with other treatment methods can help provide holistic, comprehensive treatment for optimal results. When you visit the team at Buchanan Health Center, they’ll develop a personalized plan that can address your specific condition and symptoms.
