Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy For Pain Relief

Whether you’re dealing with a minor setback or a major injury, the impact on your life can be significant. Serious injuries can adversely affect your physical health and mental well-being. In some cases, it can take years to fully recover from the trauma. If you or a loved one is suffering from chronic pain or a musculoskeletal injury, you can get relief from a non-surgical treatment known as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy.

Divergent’s Calgary clinic offers PRP to treat common musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. It is an effective, safe and natural treatment. PRP therapy can be used to treat swelling and stiffness, inflammation, damaged tendons, sprained knees and more.

What is Platelet Rich Plasma?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a concentrated form of platelets derived from a sample of your own blood, containing significantly more platelets than typically found in blood. PRP therapy harnesses these platelets to jumpstart the healing process and alleviate pain. This non-surgical treatment offers effective pain relief by utilizing growth factors such as platelet-derived growth factor, epidermal growth factor (EGF), fibroblast growth factor, and connective tissue growth factor.

PRP is used to help repair the tissue, calm osteoarthritic symptoms and decrease inflammation, implement healing in injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints, and can be applied to various musculoskeletal problems. These treatments can slow down the loss of cartilage within a joint, preventing further wear on the flexible tissues at the end of a bone. PRP is also useful in decreasing the amount of pain and stiffness while improving the patient’s ability to function.

A Safer, Natural Alternative to Surgery

Calgarians are increasingly choosing PRP treatments as a less invasive alternative to surgery. With PRP, the risks associated with surgeries, like infections and blood clotting, are significantly reduced. This natural, effective option allows for a safer healing journey, giving you peace of mind while accelerating your recovery.

How Does PRP Work?

The procedure is done in our Calgary Clinic without surgery or hospital stays. It is an in-house procedure consisting of:

  1. Blood Draw: A blood sample is drawn from the patient, usually from the arm, similar to a routine blood test.
  2. Centrifugation: The blood sample is placed in a centrifuge, a machine that spins at high speeds to separate the blood’s different components.
  3. Separation: During centrifugation, the blood separates into distinct layers, with the platelets concentrated in the plasma layer.
  4. Extraction: The plasma, now enriched with a higher concentration of platelets, is carefully extracted for use in treatment.
  5. Injection: The concentrated platelet-rich plasma is injected directly into the targeted area, such as a joint, tendon, or muscle, to promote healing and tissue regeneration.

Most people return to work and resume their usual activities right away. We will advise you on how many injections you need within a specific time frame.
