“Whatever you did, it worked!” Kolbe sat down with Dr.McKinney 6 weeks after his PRP injection with Blue Mountain Wellness. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are gaining popularity for a variety of conditions, from sports injuries to hair loss. The treatment uses a patient’s own blood cells to accelerate healing in a specific area. After a few weeks, Kolbe had noticeable improvement and was able to throw a baseball with no pain. After trying cortisone shots with no success, Kolbe would recommend PRP injections for any joint pain.
Joint discomfort is common and usually felt in the hands, feet, hips, knees, or spine. Pain may be constant or it can come and go. Sometimes the joint can feel stiff, achy, or sore. Some patients complain of a burning, throbbing, or “grating” sensation. In addition, the joint may feel stiff in the morning but loosen up and feel better with movement and activity. However, too much activity could make the pain worse.
Joint pain may affect the function of the joint, and can limit a person’s ability to do basic tasks. Severe joint pain can affect the quality of life. Treatment should focus not only on pain but also on the affected activities and functions.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is made from your own blood, which is then injected into your painful joint. Your joint contains a large number of platelets and proteins that have anti-inflammatory and immune-modulating effects.
Rotator Cuff Tear
The shoulder is the most mobile joint in your body. It is capable of a wide range of motion which also makes it prone to injury. The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint surrounded by a group of four muscles. This structure is critical for stabilizing the upper arm and shoulder and is referred to as the rotator cuff.
Tears of the rotator cuff are a common cause of shoulder pain. Damage to the rotator cuff is often a result of trauma to the shoulder, such as with a sports injury or vehicle accident, or caused by wear and tear that occurs over time.
A rotator cuff tear can range in severity. The most common indication of a torn rotator cuff is pain or weakness felt in the shoulder, especially when lifting or rotating your arm.
Our doctors at Blue Mountain Wellness take many aspects of your health into consideration as they develop your treatment plan. Most often, a nonsurgical approach can be successful.
