PRP and Botox both have healing properties for pain management. Botox injections are noted primarily for the ability to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. Botox injections have also been proven to be effective in treating migraine and tension type headaches. It is also a muscle relaxant that has been shown to relieve muscle related pain, and improve range of motion.
Platelet rich plasma (abbreviated PRP) is a treatment used for a variety of common orthopedic conditions. PRP is a concentration of platelet cells taken from your blood, and these platelets have growth factors that may help in the healing process of chronic injuries. Growth factors are chemicals that signal the body to initiate a healing response. By injecting PRP into areas of an injury, the hope is to stimulate and optimize your body's ability to heal the chronic conditions. PRP contains a high concentration of platelets, other blood cells important in healing, and growth factors.Schedule An Appointment
