What is PRP?
PRP is an all-natural component of your blood. It contains proteins and growth factors that cause blood to clot and heal through cellular growth. PRP is produced by extracting blood, spinning it in a centrifuge, and separating the PRP from the blood. The blood is then injected into various areas of the body where it is thought to heal and provide other benefits to patients.
By injecting PRP into damaged areas, such as soft tissues, new cells will begin to grow in the damaged area and promote faster, more comprehensive healing.
What Can PRP be Used to Treat?
PRP treatment is a very exciting option or a number of applications. For example, consider the following:
Sexual Dysfunction in Women
Many women experience pain during sexual intercourse or suffer from vaginal dryness. If that’s the case for you, then you will be pleased to learn that Gorospe Health offers the O shot in Tulsa.
PRP can be injected into the vagina of women who experience urinary incontinence. You can have your normal life back and be able to enjoy daily activities again without the fear of leaking in public.
PRP has been found to be one of the most effective injections into the knees (if not the most effective) for people with osteoarthritis.
Tendons connect muscles to bone, and when the rip, the results can be catastrophic. We see these types of injuries a lot with athletes. PRP can be used to treat severe tendon problems and help avoid tears.
Acute injuries, such as hamstring injuries and knee sprains, can be treated effectively with PRP. Many injury patients have been treated successfully already.
PRP has been successfully used to treat hair loss in men. Injections go directly into the scalp and have worked miracles for men with pattern baldness.
Of course, we’re just scratching the surface of the benefits of PRP treatments. Still, we must disclose that PRP treatment has not been successful for everyone. There are a lot of factors that come into play. However, there certainly have been many individuals who rave about what PRP treatments have done for them.
How do PRP Injections Work?
There are a few steps that must take place before PRP injections are administered. Usually, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the area being treated. This ensures that patients are as comfortable as possible during the PRP injections. We may request that you arrive a little bit early so that we can prepare you for your PRP treatment. You’ll want to set aside about 1.5 hours.
Depending on the location of the injection site, we may also mix a local anesthetic with the PRP to eliminate or reduce pain by as much as possible. Contact Gorospe Health to discuss PRP treatments in Tulsa.
