Low Back Pain – How PRP Therapy Can Provide Relief

Low Back Pain – How PRP Therapy Can Provide Relief

Make An Appointment

It wouldn’t be a stretch to claim that Canada is suffering from a lower back pain epidemic. Research has concluded that 5 out of 10 Canadians suffer low back pain. Low back pain is a debilitating condition that can make even simple tasks such as unloading groceries seem difficult.

People suffering from low back pain have a significantly lower quality of life and should seek proper medical care to treat their pain. Prolonged sitting is a major contributor of low back pain as it puts excessive stress on our spinal discs, which worsens this condition.

One way of treating this condition is through painkillers, but by taking these medications, you run the risk of being addicted to them.

If you or a loved one is looking for a safer, natural and more effective treatment, you should consider PRP therapy.

What is PRP therapy?

Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy relies on the body’s ability to heal itself. This therapy involves using injections of a patient’s own platelets to promote repair and jump-start the body’s natural healing process.

As plasma is rich in healing factors, injections of your own blood are given in areas that require healing such as injured tendons, joints, ligaments, or muscles.

Benefits of PRP therapy

Unlike regular pain injections, the effects of PRP therapy are long-lasting and won’t wear off. This provides a safer, non-operative treatment option compared to back surgery. Unlike surgeries, PRP treatment is simple, convenient and usually takes not more than an hour.

PRP Therapy

Additionally, as this treatment is natural and relatively painless, depending on the part of the body being treated. A recent study has acknowledged PRP treatment as an emerging therapy in treating low back pain.

A major drawback of undergoing surgery is the long recovery time and lingering side-effects. As PRP is taken from your own blood, there’s little to no chance of any side-effects. The recovery period will also be significantly shorter compared to other treatments.

If you don’t like having scars, you’d be pleased to know that PRP therapy is non-invasive. That means no stitches, incisions or scars to remind you of the procedure.

I thought I was going to have to deal with plantar fasciitis for the rest of my life. I had done all the recommended steps from orthotics, icing, stretching, massage…nothing worked. I saw Jason. He said 5 treatments with shockwave therapy should significantly improve the problem. I said no way. In a way, I was right-it took 6 treatments but I’m pain free. Amazing. Great service and a product that works.
Thank you to Dr. Nanda and his great team of specialist for taking care me. Very friendly and knowledgable!
Here is what I say about my shock treatments. I have had chronic back pain for over 40 years. Nothing has worked for me and I have tried many, many types of back treatments. Nothing worked. I was going to go for laser spine surgery. Divergent was going to be my last “try” before laser surgery. I went in with absolutely NO expectations. I had one treatment, walked out thinking “okay, my back doesn’t hurt but that won’t last.” Well guess what? It works!!!! I have had 5 treatments since May, 2017 and I have no back pain. None! Without Divergent and Dr. Jason, my life would still be a painful one. Jason, you have saved me. Anyone with any pain needs to go to Divergent. With many thanks to all of you.
I have been suffering with Plantar Fasciitis in both of my feet for over a year now and the pain was just too unbearable to deal with. I did all the recommended stretching, icing and other treatments that just didn’t help. So, I said enough is enough as I deserve to feel better than this and made the appointment at Divergent Health Care.
