Introduction to Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) is a new and innovative treatment that naturally heals injured joints and tissues using the body’s healing process. PRP therapy can be used in patients suffering from joint and knee pain, lower back pain, rotator cuff tears, and other orthopedic type injuries.

Many clinical studies have shown the benefits of using ‘platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment’ (which is also known as ‘البلازما الغنية بالصفائح الدموية (PRP) العلاج’ in the Arabic language) for non-surgical conditions.

Joint pain, especially in the knees and shoulders and back pain is the majority of patients who come to their doctor’s office with pain complaints. Many of these patients continue to undergo surgery, too often with less than optimal results.

Many of these patients still have the same pain they had before surgery, or worse, more pain. They suffer from chronic pain and frustration because no one can help them. They were amazed that the operation didn’t fix it.

Platelet-rich plasma therapy offers these patients with joint and back pain relief by curing tendons, ligaments, and cartilage of the knee joint or damaged shoulder. Patients with back pain benefit from PRP repairing damaged ligaments and muscles.

Patients with persistent back pain often feel that surgery is the only choice they have. Unfortunately, too many patients fall into the trap that surgery is the only answer to their pain problems and believe that surgery will “cure” their pain.
