According to the information released from the 2011 Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index study (latest numbers available) 47% of Americans polled had at least one of three chronic pains listed. The pain areas in the Gallup poll included neck or back, knee or leg and an all-encompassing “other” category. —
Living with pain is no longer a foregone conclusion of life today; there are treatments and methods of improving quality of life. Dr. Brian Lemper, Medical Director of Lemper Pain Centers, specializes in proven solutions to acute or chronic pain that alleviate pain and discomfort. By using treatments such as platelets-rich plasma (PRP) therapies, a process that uses the patients’ blood to regenerate damaged tissue and bone cells, Dr. Lemper can minimalize healing time for patients.
Platelets-rich plasma therapy is a cutting edge treatment for pain. Due to the extremely high natural connective tissue in platelets-rich plasma healing times are able to be shortened and chance of the body rejecting the plasma is low since it comes from the patient receiving it. By drawing blood from the patient then placing it in a special centrifuge which spins the blood down the platelets are separated from the red blood cells and concentrated. Red blood cells are discarded and the concentrated platelets are collected for use in the ensuing treatment. The patient receives either a local anesthetic through injection or conscious sedation, via IV, prior to any treatment begins. Total time for treatment is about 20 minutes with most patients responding extremely well to one treatment while most patients require a second treatment to treat lingering pains.
Recovery after a PRP treatment is less than a day with patients beginning exercising the next day. Pain relief is usually noticeable in the first week and continues to improve over the following months. Living with pain is no longer a fact of life.
