PRP relieves pain without the risks of surgery, general anesthesia, or hospital stays. There is no recovery time as with surgery. In fact, most people return to their jobs or usual activities right after the procedure. Because we are isolating your own healing cells, repair occurs rapidly and continues over weeks and months.
Numerous and recent studies show Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (PRP) is an effective tool for joint degradation and pain (knees, shoulders, hips, plantar fasciitis, and more).
Dr. Childers performed PRP on both of my severely arthritic knees; with no surgery, general anesthesia, or recovery time. The considerable relief has been truly remarkable. I have better range of motion, a remarkable reduction in pain and better function than I’ve had in the last 10 years. I’m looking forward to having the procedure on both hips, which will give me even greater mobility. I highly recommend PRP to anyone who is suffering with joint pain. Dr. Childers is highly professional and extremely skilled, and he makes healing his personal mission. J.B., ABQ
