Center for Pain Management is excited to announce that our Tricare patients now may qualify for coverage of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injections for chronic knee pain and tennis elbow! CPM has been offering PRP treatments — a same-day, non-surgical procedure — for many years.
Specifically, PRP Therapy takes advantage of the healing properties of platelets and allows for precise, targeted injections of PRP to areas where there has been chronic damage or injury. Simply put, PRP is a volume of plasma that has a concentration of platelets that is 1.5 to 10 times higher (and sometimes more) than what is found in normal human blood. PRP is prepared by taking blood from the patient and placing it into a centrifuge over the course of approximately 15 minutes. All of the red blood cells, and most of the plasma is then removed or concentrated, leaving a plasma concentrate with a higher-than-normal concentration of platelets. This is the PRP used for the injection.
In CPM’s drive to deliver the most innovative orthobiologic treatments, we’ve developed an unparalleled PRP approach different from other pain management providers in the region. This includes:
- A customized wellness plan for each patient.
- Use of leading device technology that extracts more platelets per draw, increasing chances for a greater outcome.
- Follow-up therapy, that includes laser treatments to encourage healing.
We invite all Tricare patients who suffer with chronic knee pain or tennis elbow to contact us today for a personal consult on PRP Therapy. We’re excited to help qualified patients take advantage of this new Tricare benefit!
Live with Passion, Not Pain!
