PRP Injections for Hand Pain
Does typing, gripping or using your hands cause pain? The hands and wrists are a complex network of joints, tendons, muscles and nerves that can be damaged or injured, resulting in loss of function and pain. At Robotic Hip and Knee Replacement LA, we strive to find non-invasive treatments for controlling and reducing painful joint conditions. We offer PRP injections for hand pain at our medical centers in Malibu, West Hollywood and Brentwood, CA.
What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment?
The blood running through your veins has healing properties to repair damaged tissue. When you have a cut or torn muscle, the blood rushes to the area to provide these healing elements to repair the wound. Platelets, proteins and growth factors are only a small part of the blood – water dilutes these healing components. By filtering blood through a centrifuge, our medical team can concentrate these properties into platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, then inject it to a specific area of the body to stimulate tissue repair.
Relieve Hand Pain With PRP
Carpal tunnel, tendonitis, arthritis and injuries to the hand or wrist can cause pain and limit function. PRP injections for hand pain can be beneficial and offer relief from pain. The healing properties are excellent for reducing inflammation that can cause pain or restrict hand movement. PRP can also stimulate healing for injured tissues, bones or joints.
Hand treatment with PRP can be performed in an outpatient procedure at one of our clinics. We will take a small blood sample and filter it to create PRP. The concentrated plasma can be injected using imaging to guide the needle to the specific area causing pain. The treatment requires little to no downtime and no adverse side effects. Most patients receive a series of treatments to achieve the desired healing response.
