Many patients are surprised to discover they can alleviate their pain without the use of surgery or medications of any kind. PRP therapy uses the healing ability of platelets in the patient’s own blood to encourage healing in almost any area of the body. Southeastern Interventional Pain Associates offers PRP therapy to residents of Atlanta, Sandy Springs, and Alpharetta.
What is PRP Therapy?

By promoting the long-lasting healing of musculoskeletal conditions, PRP can treat osteoarthritis of the knee, shoulder, hip and spine, rotator cuff tears, chronic plantar fasciitis, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries, pelvic pain and instability, back and neck injuries, tennis elbow, ankle sprains, tendonitis, and ligament sprains.

How Does Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Help?
When you first experience a soft tissue injury, your body responds by delivering platelet cells to the damaged area. Platelets, which are packed with growth and healing factors, initiate repair while attracting the critical assistance of stem cells. PRP therapy intensifies the body’s ability to heal by delivering a higher concentration of platelets.
How is PRP Therapy Performed?
We draw a small sample of your blood (similar to a lab test sample), and place it in a centrifuge that spins the blood at high speeds. This separates the platelets from other components.
We then inject the concentrated platelet-rich plasma into and around the point of injury, which jump-starts and significantly improves your body’s ability to heal. Since we use your own blood, there is no risk of transmissible infection and a very low risk of allergic reaction.
If you are considering PRP therapy for any of the reasons above, contact us today to schedule a consultation with our office.
