How Does Platelet-Rich Fibrin Therapy Work?
The process of PRF therapy begins with the collection of the patient’s blood. The blood is then processed to separate the platelets, white blood cells, and fibrin from the rest of the blood components.
The resulting PRF is a concentrated mixture of these elements, which are then injected into the affected area.
We use platelet-rich fibrin therapy for a range of different issues and conditions, including:
- Ligament/cartilage damage
- Bone fractures
- Plantar fasciitis
- Sprained/strained muscles
- Muscle tears
- And more
Why Choose PRF Therapy
There are many benefits to PRF therapy, including:
- Natural treatment method: PRF therapy uses a patient’s own blood, which means there is little to no risk of adverse reactions or complications.
- Non-surgical and non-invasive: PRF therapy is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure, which means patients can avoid the risks and complications associated with surgery, such as infection and scarring. It also means that there is no need for anesthesia, which can be particularly beneficial for patients who are allergic to anesthesia or have other medical conditions that make anesthesia risky.
- Quick procedure time: PRF therapy is a relatively quick procedure, usually taking no more than an hour to complete. Patients can typically return to their normal activities immediately following the procedure, although they may be advised to avoid strenuous activity for a few days.
- Promotes tissue regeneration: PRF contains a high concentration of growth factors, which are essential for cell growth and repair. These growth factors stimulate the body’s natural healing processes, promoting the formation of new tissue and helping to repair damaged tissue.
- Effective in treating joint pain: PRF therapy has been found to be particularly effective in treating joint pain, including osteoarthritis. In one study, patients with knee osteoarthritis who received PRF therapy experienced a significant reduction in pain and stiffness, as well as an improvement in knee function.
- Effective in treating muscle injuries: PRF therapy has also been found to be effective in treating muscle injuries, such as strains and sprains. In one study, athletes with hamstring injuries who received PRF therapy experienced a faster recovery time and returned to their sport more quickly than those who received traditional treatment methods.
- Versatile treatment method: PRF therapy can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including joint pain, muscle injuries, and chronic pain.
PRF therapy is used as a complementary treatment method to chiropractic care. By combining these two treatment methods, patients can benefit from a holistic approach to pain relief and overall wellness.
What to Expect
During the initial consultation, we will assess your condition and determine if PRF therapy is a suitable treatment option for you. If PRF therapy is recommended, we will explain the procedure and answer any questions you may have.
Once you have decided to proceed with PRF therapy, the blood collection process will begin. Your blood will be drawn, and the PRF will be processed using a centrifuge machine to separate the platelets, white blood cells, and fibrin.
The PRF will then be injected into the affected area. You may experience some discomfort during the injection process, but this is typically minimal and short-lived. Following the procedure, you may experience some mild soreness or swelling, but this typically subsides within a few days.
