The term Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is becoming more and more popular in the world of musculoskeletal health. At Mesa Health & Aesthetics, we are proud to offer our clients PRP as a natural solution for promoting muscular/joint health. Here’s what you need to know about PRP and how it can be used at our clinic.
PRP is an autologous treatment that involves putting your own plasma-rich blood platelets into an affected area of your body. This procedure has been around since the late 1990s. The idea behind it is that when plasma-rich platelets are introduced into an injured area, they will help promote tissue regeneration and wound healing.
At Mesa Health & Aesthetics, we use PRP as a natural solution for promoting musculoskeletal health. We can use PRP to treat pain and inflammation in the muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints. The process starts with collecting a blood sample from you, which is then sent to our lab to be processed into plasma-rich platelets. Once the platelets are ready, they are injected directly into your injured area with the help of ultrasound guidance. This ensures that the PRP is delivered exactly where it needs to go.
Once injected, the platelets will immediately start working to promote tissue regeneration and wound healing. You’ll likely experience some discomfort around the injection site for a few days after the procedure. However, this is completely normal and will pass with time.
At Mesa Health & Aesthetics, we believe that PRP is an important natural solution for promoting musculoskeletal health. The treatment can help to reduce pain and inflammation in muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints without relying on potentially harmful medications or invasive procedures. If you’re looking for a safe and effective way to promote muscular/joint health, PRP could be the perfect solution for you.
