Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for Pain Reduction

Apart from physical therapy, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections can also help alleviate pain in various areas such as joints, nerves, and muscles.

            Platelets are small cell fragments found in our blood, along with red blood cells and white blood cells. They play a crucial role in clotting, wound healing, and tissue repair.
            When there's an injury, platelets are activated and release growth factors, which help stop bleeding by forming a clot.
            Additionally, these growth factors stimulate the repair and regeneration of injured tissues.

            New treatment modalities have emerged, and one of them involves using Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections in areas of injury or degeneration, such as nerves, muscles, or joints. This approach aims to stimulate tissue repair and regeneration, thereby reducing pain.

There are two types of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP):
            1. Leukocyte-Rich PRP (LR-PRP): This type contains a high concentration of white blood cells, which stimulates tissue repair by inducing inflammation at the injection site.
            2. Leukocyte-Poor PRP (LP-PRP): This type has a low concentration of white blood cells and is used to reduce inflammation, such as relieving knee pain from osteoarthritis.

At Vasu Pain Management, we prioritize the meticulous preparation of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) to ensure the highest quality. The process of preparing concentrated platelets begins with:
           1. Drawing 30-60 ml of the patient's blood from the arm.

             2. The blood is centrifuged to isolate the platelet-rich portion from other blood components.

            3. After centrifugation, we extract the platelet-rich layer, typically 6-9 times more concentrated than normal blood.

            4. The extracted platelets are then subjected to LED Cell Activation to stimulate their functionality, thereby enhancing their effectiveness.

            5. The processed platelets are then injected into the patient using ultrasound-guidedance to ensure precise placement and targeting of the affected area.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections can be administered for various conditions, including:
1. Rotator cuff tears or strains
2. Tendonitis or Bursitis in the elbow
3. Frozen shoulder
4. Shoulder impingement
5. Osteoarthritis in the knee
6. Office syndrome
7. Wrist pain
8. Back pain

For example, patient with De Quervain's Tenosynovitis, which is inflammation of the tendons at the wrist. Treatment with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) can be used to stimulate tendon repair and reduce inflammation.

Post-Injection Precautions for Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP):
Soreness may occur for 1-2 weeks after injection.
Avoid taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) after injection, as they can reduce the effectiveness of PRP.

Treatment with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a targeted approach, but the effectiveness of the obtained platelets depends on various factors such as:
- Platelet concentration
- Quantity of white blood cells
- Use of LED Cell Activation, and others

At Vasu Pain Management, we prioritize the meticulous preparation of platelets to achieve the highest effectiveness.
