PRP Q & A

Corvallis Pain Management

What is platelet-rich plasma?

PRP therapy draws from your own blood to provoke a natural healing response in your body. Your provider at Corvallis Pain Management takes a sample of blood and uses a centrifuge to extract the plasma from it. Your practitioner then injects the plasma into the injured area to repair the damaged tissue.

PRP has ongoing and natural health benefits that can significantly alleviate pain, reduce and help you avoid inflammation, and reestablish functionality to the affected area.  

What conditions can PRP therapy treat?

PRP therapy has been highly successful in treating any of the following conditions:

  • Back pain
  • Knee pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Joint injury or degeneration
  • Tendon and ligament injuries

You can experience these types of injuries and conditions regardless of how old you are.

When should I consider PRP therapy?

The team at Corvallis Pain Management recommends PRP therapy if you’re unable to be physically active because of pain and mobility issues. Your practitioner evaluates your overall medical and family histories before determining whether PRP therapy is right for you.

You should consider PRP therapy as a way to prevent the need for surgery or other invasive treatments down the line.

Is PRP therapy painful?

PRP therapy is only as painful as a blood extraction and injection. Your provider extracts a sample of your blood and re-injects the sample of plasma into the injured area. To do so, they might choose to apply a topical anesthetic to numb the site.

You might experience some soreness in the treatment area, but this shouldn’t last more than a few days.

How long does it take to see results from PRP therapy?

PRP therapy accelerates your body’s ability to use regenerative cells to cure damaged areas. That being said, it can take time for cells to develop and relieve both pain and inflammation.

Nonetheless, you can expect to experience significantly less pain and regain your functionality within four to six weeks following PRP therapy. You’ll notice that these improvements continue for up to six months after the procedure. However, the more severe the injury, the longer it’ll take.
