MESQUITE, TX, August 12, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- After a severe car accident last November, Hayley found herself in a lot of pain that slowed her daily activities. Hayley's symptoms were negatively affecting her life. She explained, she started having back spasms and would experience migraines anywhere from four hours to four days.
She could no longer play with her child and skipped family functions due to the pain. Hayley received an Epidural Steroid Injection (ESI) in hope she'd find pain relief. Unfortunately, this did not work.
Seeking alternative options, she set up an appointment with Dr. Timothy Lehman at Mesquite Chiropractic & Injury. Dr. Lehman gave her a treatment plan that involved chiropractic adjustments. After these adjustments, Hayley started to notice a difference in the way her body felt. Dr. Lehman then suggested Hayley try one other treatment he thought she was a good candidate for. This treatment was called Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP).
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) has been gaining more attention and momentum as a non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical pain relief option. This procedure is popular amongst professional athletes and has made its way to the public's attention. Platelet-Rich Plasma relieves pain by healing underlying damage to tissue in the body. When the damaged tissue heals at its source, the pain has the ability to be reduced.
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is created by taking a small blood sample from the patient. This blood sample then goes through a process called centrifusion. Centrifusion spins the blood sample until its contents separate, and the red blood cells sink to the bottom of the test tube. Above the red blood cells, the plasma will float.
Platelets have the incredible ability to stimulate the repair mechanics in damaged tissue. It has been used to successfully treat a range of conditions, including:
Tendon and ligament tears
At first, Hayley was skeptical of Dr. Lehman's recommendation to use PRP as a treatment. However, she agreed to give it a try. To her surprise, the next day, after she had the PRP injections, she didn't feel the pain she did before. Hayley cried in relief because she had been suffering for so long.
Thank you, Hayley, for sharing your success story in the hope of giving guidance to others who would like to relieve their pain.
