Chattanooga Enriched Plasma Therapy
Bryn Medical is proud to offer Enriched Plasma therapy to our patients suffering from joint pain.
Enriched Plasma (also known as P-R-P therapy) has continued to grow as a reliable way in physical medicine to support the function and health of joints and connective tissues.
What is Enriched Plasma?
Enriched plasma is a special treatment that supports your body’s healing processes. Your blood has several parts: red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. Platelets are tiny pieces that help your blood clot when you get a cut. Plasma is the liquid part of your blood that carries these cells and platelets.
Within this mix, we find enriched plasma. Our providers take a small amount of your blood and put it into a centrifuge. This spins the blood very fast, separating the platelets and plasma from the other parts. They then mix the plasma with a higher concentration of platelets, creating enriched plasma.
This enriched plasma has special healing properties because it’s packed with platelets and growth factors – substances that support the body’s own repair mechanisms. Our providers can inject this mixture into an injured area, like a sore muscle or damaged joint, to help support the localized healing process.
This protocol is often used within our Accelerated Joint Recovery Protocols for supporting sports injuries, arthritis and inflammation, or other problems where the body needs a little extra help to heal.
The Body’s Powerful Plasma
Enriched plasma is a powerful treatment that supports your body’s natural healing process. It works by harnessing the power of platelets, tiny blood particles that contain growth factors – substances that are shown to promote healing and repair in the body. When enriched plasma is injected into an injured or damaged area, it releases these growth factors, which may help in the recovery process.
The growth factors in enriched plasma have been shown to encourage the growth of new cells and blood vessels, helping to rebuild and restore injured tissue. They also help reduce inflammation, which can cause pain and slow down healing. Decreasing inflammation allows for faster and more efficient recovery.
In summary, enriched plasma works by delivering a concentrated dose of healing growth factors directly to the site of injury. This targeted approach helps to support the body’s natural repair process, leading to faster healing and a quicker return to normal function.
Enriched plasma treatment is an innovative and natural way to support your body’s ability to heal itself.
FAQs About Enriched Plasma
How is enriched plasma treatment performed?
Enriched plasma treatment begins with a small blood sample taken from the patient. This sample is placed in a centrifuge, which separates the platelets and plasma from the other blood components. The plasma is then enriched with a higher concentration of platelets. The resulting enriched plasma is injected directly into the injured or damaged area, allowing the growth factors and healing properties within the platelets to support repair and recovery.
what type of patient is eligible for enriched plasma treatment?
Enriched plasma is versatile and can be used with many of our Accelerated Joint Recovery Protocols, including patients who have experienced sports injuries, arthritis, tendonitis, joint pain or ligament injuries. It has also shown promise in supporting the body by affecting inflammation which is a major component of chronic pain and degenerative joint diseases. Enriched plasma is particularly useful for our patient who seek us for a more natural, non-surgical approach to healing.
How long does it take to see results from enriched plasma treatment?
The healing process varies for each individual and depends on the severity of the injury or condition. Through our Accelerated Joint Recovery Protocols, some patients notice improvement as fast as one week, while others may require several months to achieve optimal results. Our medical team carefully craft your personalized care plan to ensure maximum progress for your specific need.
