For those suffering from isolated inflammation and/or trouble healing after a surgical procedure, we recommend PRP injections. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a scientifically proven method of stimulating the body’s healing response, done via autologous transfusions of platelet-reinforced blood. Bernard Ong, M.D. administers PRP therapy to patients in Las Vegas, NV who may benefit from the intensive healing properties unlocked via platelet-rich infusions.
How do PRP Injections Work?
PRP injections are administered using a patient’s own blood. Blood is collected, then placed into a centrifuge where it’s spun at high rpms to separate platelets from the blood. The platelet-rich concentration that’s leftover is injected into affected areas, such as inflamed joints or near the site of a recent surgery. The growth factors of the PRP concentration stimulate the body’s natural healing process, aiding in recovery.
Is PRP Therapy Safe?
PRP injections have been widely studied and are considered generally safe for many reasons. Because PRP injections are autologous—using the patient’s own blood—there’s no risk of rejection or incompatibility. Moreover, because PRP injections stimulate the body’s natural healing response, there are no stimulants, hormones or artificial factors to be worried about. The results that can be achieved through PRP therapy make it a desirable course of action for many people seeking to speed recovery times and improve their body’s responsiveness during the healing period.
Who Benefits From PRP Therapy?
PRP injections have been proven effective in a wide range of situations and for a myriad of patients. Some of the most common benefactors of PRP injections include:
- Arthritis sufferers, especially those recovering from surgery
- Athletes suffering from muscle strains, sprains or tears
- Athletes overcoming torn or surgically-repaired ligaments
- Sufferers of repetitive stress injuries or chronic injuries
Bernard Ong, M.D. frequently administers PRP injections to Las Vegas, NV athletes to assist them in expediting the healing process after an injury, to reduce joint degeneration and to reduce pain associated with healing.
