Benefits of PRP Treatment. Dynamic Osteopaths Solihull

What are the benefits of PRP?

1) Help to Treat Unresponsive Chronic Pain & Injuries

Are you taking pain-reducing medications (including Advil, aspirin, ibuprofen and oral steroids) frequently or for long periods in order to dull muscular or joint pain? Has there been little improvements? 

Have you tried physical therapy and manual therapy without much success?

Are you running out of options?

Then you may well be the perfect candidate for PRP treatment. PRP can help patients who haven’t responded well to other conservative forms of treatment to overcome ongoing pain, improve stiffness, range of motion and restore function. Why can’t i heel naturally and why would one need PRP Treatment ? One theory is that over time the body can stop recognising that an area as “something that needs repairing’’, especially in the case of chronic injuries, degeneration or conditions such as severe tendonosis that cause lots of pain. Because of this, PRP might be one of the best suited types of treatment for these kinds of problems and injuries, due to it increasing natural growth factor expressions. The way that PRP and stem cell treatments help to resolve chronic pain is causing a purposeful, local inflammation response near damaged tissue. This type of inflammatory response is usually what happens following a normal injury or tissue damage, but in some cases the healing process doesn’t always correctly rebuild the damaged area and the body. PRP ultimately helps to restart the process and for new fibers to then grow back. 2. Reduces Tendonitis 

It is estimated 30–50 percent of all sports-related injuries are tendon disorders, many of which are very difficult to treat. PRP helps with many common sports injuries, including those of the Achilles tendon or elbow. Likewise to medial or lateral epicondylitis (better known as golfers’ or tennis elbow). This often occurs due to repetition causing micro tearing. Stanford University published the first human study supporting the use of PRP for chronic tendon problems in 2006. They found that patients experienced on average a 93 percent reduction in pain at the two-year follow up point. Stanford has been recommending PRP for pain and other conditions ever since.  3. Successful treatment Osteoarthritis

Many studies have found that osteoarthritis and degenerative joint disease patients having platelet-rich plasma injections experience restored joint health and improved cartilage, which helps to reverse joint damage and stop disease progression. PRP and and Hyaluronic acid treatments have been found to specifically restore joint health and function. These effects have been found to be especially beneficial for those with knee pains due to osteoarthritis  A 2010 pilot study that was published in the American Journal of Physical Medicine Rehabilitation found that patients with knee osteoarthritis pain who received treatments for four weeks on average reported no adverse events and saw significant improvements. The majority of patients experienced the most results after about 6 months following treatment.  4. Helps treat chronic conditions like Plantar Fasciitis & Knee tendonitis.

In addition to treating knee pain with osteoarthritis, many other studies have found that PRP therapy is beneficial for those with trauma or sports-related injuries. One study involving 15 patients who had failed previous nonsurgical or surgical treatments found that PRP injections given on three occasions, two weeks apart, combined with standard physical therapy resulted in 70–80 percent symptom improvements. 

5. Reduces Lower Back Pain

PRP is commonly used to treat chronic low back pain, and 2015 report published found that treatments could improve cases that were previously very difficult to treat. Following treatment up to 90–100 percent symptom improvement was achieved in some patients. Around 60 percent of patients experienced significant improvements in measures of pain, posture and stability. Research shows that a high percentage of chronic low back pain is actually due to torn or bulging discs, musculoskeletal compensations, ligamentous instability and poor postural alignment. Some of the ways PRP can reduce low back pain include treating structural ligaments (such as iliolumbar, sacroiliac, lumbosacral and supraspinous ligaments) and, therefore, improving stability and dispersion of weight. 6. Natural Hair Loss Treatment & Skin Rejuvenation 

Many clinics now recognise and use PRP as an effect natural medical procedure for skin rejuvenation and hair stimulation. Studies from the Dermatologic Surgery support the use of clinical application of PRP in hair restoration with expressing its valued outcomes. The way that PRP works for treating hair loss is by increasing stimulating growth factor 7 and beta-catenin for accelerated hair growth plus less inflammation. 7. Dental and Oral Surgery Adjunct

PRP is a use approach to tissue regeneration within the field of oral maxillofacial surgery. Immunity & Ageing study authors remarked that It is becoming a valuable adjunct to promote healing in many procedures in dental and oral surgery, especially in aging patients. Similarly, promising results were also seen with oral implant surgery.
