PRP Injections and Functional Medicine for Joint Pain Relief
At The Med Spa at Clinical Edge, we offer a holistic approach to joint pain relief, combining Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections with Functional Medicine to address the root causes of discomfort in knees, shoulders, and other joints. Our integrated approach focuses on enhancing your joint health and overall well-being.
PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, is derived from your own blood. It contains concentrated platelets and growth factors that play a crucial role in tissue repair and regeneration.
How PRP Treatment Works for Joints:
1. Blood Collection: A small sample of your blood is drawn, similar to a standard blood test.
2. PRP Separation: The blood is then processed in a specialized centrifuge to isolate the PRP from other components.
3. Injection: The concentrated PRP is carefully injected into the affected joint, such as the knee or shoulder.
**Functional Medicine for Joint Health:**
Functional Medicine is an approach that seeks to identify and address the underlying factors contributing to joint pain. Our experienced practitioners collaborate with you to:
- Assess your overall health and lifestyle.
- Identify dietary and nutritional factors that may impact joint health.
- Address inflammation, hormonal imbalances, and other potential triggers of joint discomfort.
- Develop a personalized plan to optimize your joint function and alleviate pain.
Benefits of Combined PRP and Functional Medicine:
- Holistic Approach: Our integrated approach considers both the structural and functional aspects of joint health.
- Natural Healing: PRP harnesses your body's natural healing processes, while Functional Medicine addresses root causes for long-term relief.
- Comprehensive Care: We focus on your overall well-being, not just symptom management.
Common Joint Conditions Treated:
PRP injections and Functional Medicine can help address various joint conditions, including:
- Knee Pain: Osteoarthritis, ligament injuries, and meniscus tears.
- Shoulder Pain: Rotator cuff injuries, tendinitis, and other shoulder joint problems.
- Other Joints: Hip, elbow, wrist, and ankle joint issues.
What to Expect:
- Comfort: You may experience minor discomfort during the injection, but local anesthesia or numbing agents are often used to minimize any pain.
- Recovery: Recovery time is usually minimal, and you can typically resume your regular activities shortly after the procedure.
Results from PRP joint treatments and Functional Medicine may vary, but many patients report reduced pain, improved joint function, and enhanced overall well-being within a few weeks to a few months.
