If you have arthritis, tendonitis or other pain in your hips, shoulder, knees, ankles or feet, you know you are not alone. But, you often don’t know what to do, where to go or who to trust. Most likely you’ve tried steroid injections, pain medicines including Advil, Aleve, Motrin, prescribed pain medications, and even opioids. Maybe surgery was recommended. All to no avail, too much risk, or too many side effects. Sound like you? Then welcome to NYC Pain MD’s world of Ortho-biologic and Regenerative Medicine Treatment! Doctors and scientists have discovered how using parts of your own blood known as “platelets” may have the answer to your painful condition.
If you’ve ever had a cut with some bleeding, you know that with a little time, the bleeding stops, a scar or scab may heal and eventually, it's almost as if you never injured yourself. In other words, you’ve healed. What causes this healing? PLATELETS These are tiny molecules that reside in your own blood. When injuries occur, these platelet cells rush to the area to promote repair.
How do they work?
Platelet treatment or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is derived from your own blood. By “spinning” a small amount of your own blood, the platelet component is concentrated. After that, the concentrated platelets are precisely placed under Precision Targeting Technology exactly where you need it to kick start and promote healing. PRP has been well studied and offers hope to so many who have not responded to other forms of care.
