Physical Therapy Q & A

What is Physical Therapy?

Physical Therapy is composed of the platelets from your blood. Your blood naturally has red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. The platelets have a large number of growth factors — proteins that stimulate natural healing. 

The physical solution creates an all-platelet solution with up to 10 times the amount of growth factors normally present in the blood. Then, the PRP is used for healing in injured parts of your body. 

What can physical therapy do for me?

Physical injection therapy offers a nonsurgical approach to chronic and acute pain, especially in cases where joints, tendons, ligaments, and even bones are damaged but don't respond to initial conservative treatment. Some doctors even place the treatment at an injury site immediately after surgery to help speed up the healing process. 

Physical therapy may be beneficial for, but isn't limited to:

  • Shoulder pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Joint pain, including arthritis 
  • Sports injuries
  • Workers’ compensation injuries
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Neck pain

Often, Physical therapy is an excellent choice when you need a healing boost. It's such a powerful treatment because the PRP improves the underlying condition, instead of only treating your symptoms like many oral medications. 

What is the Physical therapy process like?

Your Elite Wellness Center provider takes a blood sample and then processes your blood in a centrifuge while you wait. Then, your specialist injects the restorative platelet solution in the specific area where it's needed. This infuses your injured tissue with a massive amount of growth factors, which go to work almost immediately. 

How many Physical therapy treatments do I need?

It depends on your particular issue, your overall health, and your body's individual response. Most patients enjoy the best outcome from a short series of Physical therapy treatments. The Elite Wellness Center team designs an individualized Physical therapy plan for you and can make adjustments as needed to help you enjoy maximum results.
