THERE MAY BE HOPE FOR YOU!
Along with the liquid called plasma, your blood contains red cells, white cells, and platelets. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is obtained via a process called centrifugation that removes red and white blood cells from a blood sample while leaving behind a high concentration of platelets in the plasma.
Platelets are vital for clotting blood but also contain proteins called growth factors that are very important in the healing process. PRP contains as many as 10 times the normal concentration of platelets.
For PRP therapy, a sample of your blood is drawn and the platelet-rich plasma is separated out and placed in a syringe. The PRP is then injected into the injured area.
For joint damage, the treatment is also known as “prolotherapy,” or proliferation therapy, since the solution is injected very near or into the joint itself. The proteins in the PRP promote the healing and regeneration of new tissue, which resolves the symptoms associated with the damage.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF PRP THERAPY?
Rather than masking pain, PRP therapy actually enhances your body’s own natural processes to repair and regenerate damaged tissue. By introducing high concentrations of collagen and other natural growth factors into an injured area, PRP therapy resolves the underlying condition rather than just treating the symptoms. Side effects are limited to nonexistent with this treatment. There’s no risk of rejection because your own blood is used.
As a natural remedy with medically proven effectiveness, PRP therapy coincides perfectly with the integrative medicine approach of treating your medical concerns with your body’s own restorative processes whenever possible.

It’s no secret that your body has the capability to repair itself after an injury. The manner in which your body is able to heal itself by using its cells is made possible by the body’s ability to replace damaged cells. As an example, let’s say you’re struggling with tendon pain in Knoxville that is a result of an injury.
In this case, your body needs a specific type of cell to heal the damage. This type of cell would be different if you were dealing with joint pain that is a result of cartilage damage and can adapt to any number of specialized cells depending on the origin of your pain
