Everyone experiences pain at some point in life. Sometimes it’s after a long day of work, or maybe after spending the day running errands. Unfortunately, there are times in which we experience pain or get hurt and your typical physician and over the counter medicines just aren’t enough. We can’t always rely on taking prescription medicines as the side effects often times make a person drowsy or interferes with the ability to function in a coherent and sober way. Luckily, there is a new approach to the way pain can be treated by specialists called pain management. The types of services offered by these specialists that could help you are the following:

Spine Injections (Epidural): Five various epidural injections are available including those in to the spine, cervix, selective nerve root block and more.

Blocks: Six different types of blocks allow them to deal with the issues of nerve pain.

Neuroablation Techniques: Among other services, they use radio frequency techniques to aid with nerve pain.

Joint Injections: For those who experience joint pain, there are various options available to help treat them.
No matter what pain you may be experiencing these highly trained physicians can assist you on your road to recovery with their help. The best part is they accept almost all brands of insurance to cover the cost of your visits and procedures. Out of all these the best service they offer is PRP therapy (Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy.) The plasma that is a main component in your blood is used to treat certain disorders and pain issues that many people face on a daily basis.

How does it work?

We know that our blood plasma platelets often target parts of our body that are injured and repairs them. The therapy works in much the same way in which a small sample of your blood is taken by a train tech at the doctor’s visit, the blood is then separated from the plasma and then injected in to the area where the patient is suffering pain or damage. The platelets in turn target the area in need to heal and take away from inflammation.

What are the benefits?

With a procedure such as this you are facing very minimal to no affects. As your own blood is being used, your body will accept the repairs to the body that your plasma attempts to take care of and often times the results are long-term pain free relief.

What can go wrong?

Very little in fact. The only risk you are facing with this all-natural treatment is a little tenderness at the injection site, inflammation, and possible bruising or bleeding at the site of the injection.

This therapy is extremely helpful and so many can benefit from it. The body is going directly to the source of pain and injury and helping it to heal in a completely natural way. This is especially important for those who are elder and can’t risk certain medicines and procedures due to health reasons.
