CNOS Offers Plasma Therapy, A Less Invasive Option for Some Suffering From Pain
(DAKOTA DUNES, SD) – CNOS offers various treatments for injury and pain, including
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy. PRP decreases inflammation and promotes healing
for those dealing with knee pain, tennis elbow, osteoarthritis or other ailments.
PRP is a simple therapy that involves drawing a small amount of your own blood,
separating the platelets and nutrients and reinjecting them at the location of your injury or
pain. This process releases growth factors that stimulate and increase the number of
reparative cells your body produces.
“For patients experiencing chronic tendonitis, knee or shoulder pain, this can dramatically
reduce inflammation,” said Joseph Carreau, MD, Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon
CNOS, Carreau and their team emphasize that while PRP therapy is minimally invasive
and can speed healing, it should be considered as part of your comprehensive diagnosis
and treatment plan. Any supplemental therapy for pain or injury is best administered from
orthopaedic experts who understand the full complexity of your diagnosis.
“The advantage of coming to a musculoskeletal specialist is we have a lot of tools to care
for whatever your condition requires at the stage you’re in,” adds Carreau. “We can
stratify whatever is needed from non-operative options, preventative and other therapies
all the way up to surgery if required.”
