What Are PRP Injections?
The human body is a remarkable biological structure capable of impressive feats. Whether running long distances or lifting heavy weights, the human body can pull off some truly awe-inspiring accomplishments when pushed to the limit. Still, one can argue that the human body’s most incredible capability is how it heals itself.
People can survive and fully recover from life-threatening injuries. Our cells play a big role in that. More specifically, our platelets help us recover faster.
Platelets perform essential functions within the human body. We rely on them to initiate the clotting process that prevents us from bleeding out. On top of that, platelets are also critical to injury recovery. The platelets coursing through the bloodstream interact with various tissues inside the human body. They also trigger responses that are meant to speed up cell reproduction.
Medical professionals have taken notice of the benefits platelets provide and are now using them for treatment. PRP injections, otherwise known as platelet-rich injections, capitalize on the platelets’ healing capabilities. Your chiropractor aims to boost your recovery by injecting the platelet-rich plasma solution.
After the injection is administered, the platelets concentrated within the shot spread out over the injured part of your body. The platelets around that area then work on inducing the healing responses you need.
Faster injury recovery is the main benefit of getting a PRP shot, but it does more than that. PRP shots are also known to provide pain relief. Give PRP injections in Pompano Beach, FL, a try after speaking to Dr. Cheshire and Dr. Bednar of Pompano Beach Chiropractic Clinic.
How Are PRP Injections Administered?
Now that we know what PRP injections can do, let’s discuss how they are administered.
The process begins with the chiropractor collecting your blood sample. They then place your blood inside a machine known as a centrifuge, where it spins around for a while. The spinning motions separate other components of your blood so only the platelets remain within the plasma.
With the PRP injection ready, the chiropractor will use an anesthetic to numb your body. They will then inject the platelet-rich plasma into the part of your body that needs treatment. In some cases, a chiropractor may also use ultrasound to find the appropriate injection site.
The procedure usually takes around 30 minutes to complete.
