Dr. Rachel Stricker at Quenby's Aesthetic Medicine and Wellness Center in Lake Oswego is highly trained and experienced in PRP treatments for Pain Management in Portland.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are replacing traditional orthopedic surgery in many instances for conditions ranging from soft tissue injuries (tendonitis, muscle tears, ligamentous injuries) to various joint afflictions, such as torn meniscus or mild to moderate arthritis of the joint.
The procedure begins with a blood draw. Then, using a special centrifuge the platelets are separated and concentrated. The Platelet Rich Plasma containing growth factors extracted from the patient’s blood is then injected into the joint.
Injuries treatable with PRP include:
*Wrist and Hand
*Ankle and Foot
PRP treatment typically requires two to four PRP injections, 4 to 6 weeks apart, into the injured tissue, depending on the severity of the injury. Regenerative techniques can be tailored to meet each patient’s orthopedic needs. Mild injuries can often be resolved with just one injection.
If you suffer from muscle pain or injury, joint issues, or arthritis, PRP might be the non-surgical answer you’ve been searching for!
