How Can PRP Therapy Improve Joint Function?

By: Our Medical Team | March 28, 2023

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy is a modern technique that utilizes your body’s regenerative powers to help you feel and perform better. One major component of PRP is a concentration of platelets, which accelerate the biological recovery response. And by leveraging the potent power of platelets and other nourishing substances, such as healing factors, Dr. Michael Wolff can help relieve daily aches and mobility issues while improving joint function.

What are some of the advantages of PRP therapy?

Countless individuals struggle with joint problems that keep them from being their productive best. And this daily discomfort, whether caused by injuries, repetitive movements, illnesses, or genetic issues, can quickly prove exasperating. It can make it unnecessarily challenging to concentrate at school, be productive at work, keep up with health initiatives, or enjoy your favorite hobbies. And in addition to daily aches and pains, many individuals struggle with joint function, reduced range of motion, and compromised mobility.

PRP therapy involves a quick, safe, minimally invasive procedure that won’t require downtime.

How can PRP improve joint function?

Other benefits abound, including a potentially significant reduction of swelling and inflammation, which are essential factors that impact proper joint function. And by spurring the repair of cartilage and other connective tissues, patients can enjoy long-lasting, life-boosting effects.

The procedure begins with drawing a small amount of your blood, then purifying it in a state-of-the-art centrifuge. The concentrated, purified, platelet-rich plasma (plasma is the liquid portion of blood) is then injected into the targeted area. It travels deep into the cells to stimulate the body’s innate recovery and cellular response. So, it’s no surprise that many patients notice dramatic improvements in joint function, along with reduced pain and inflammation, since PRP kickstarts a remodeling of the deep-down tissues.
