PRP for Joints

Aspen Orthopedic Pain & Spine, led by Dr. Greg Condie in Murray, Utah, introduces an advanced, non-surgical solution for joint pain: Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy. This innovative treatment harnesses the body’s natural healing mechanisms to repair and rejuvenate joints affected by various conditions.

Symptoms Addressed by PRP

  • Chronic joint pain
  • Stiffness and reduced mobility
  • Inflammation and swelling
  • Injury-related joint discomfort
  • Degenerative joint conditions

Why PRP is a Crucial Treatment Option

Joint pain, a common ailment affecting a wide demographic, often leads to reduced mobility and a diminished quality of life. Traditional treatments typically involve medications or invasive procedures, which might not be ideal for every patient. PRP therapy emerges as a vital alternative, especially appealing for its natural approach to healing. By concentrating and utilizing the patient’s own platelets, PRP therapy facilitates the repair and regeneration of damaged joint tissues.

For patients with chronic joint conditions or those recovering from joint injuries, including those related to traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) from motor vehicle accidents (MVAs), Dr. Condie’s expertise in PRP therapy provides a beacon of hope. As a double board-certified specialist in Physical Medicine and Rehab & Pain Medicine, and with his Concussion and Balance Certification, Dr. Condie ensures that each PRP treatment is customized to meet the unique needs of every patient.

The PRP Treatment Process

  • Initial Evaluation: Comprehensive assessment of joint health and suitability for PRP.
  • Blood Collection: A small sample of the patient’s blood is taken.
  • PRP Preparation: Blood is processed to concentrate platelets and growth factors.
  • Injection: The PRP is carefully injected into the affected joint.
  • Monitoring: Post-treatment evaluation to assess response and plan follow-up care.

Preventive Strategies Alongside PRP

In addition to PRP therapy, patients are encouraged to adopt lifestyle changes for joint health. Regular exercise, weight management, and a balanced diet play crucial roles in preventing joint deterioration. Dr. Condie, with his Concussion and Balance Certification, also provides specialized advice for patients with a history of TBIs or MVAs, ensuring a holistic approach to joint health.
