Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an advanced, non-surgical treatment for pain relief. PRP therapy is a new technique being used to speed up the healing process and give patients another alternative to surgery. A blood sample is obtained and placed into a centrifuge which separates the blood. Platelet rich plasma is collected, treated and then placed back into the pain area of the patient. PRP therapy can be performed within just a few hours and relieves pain without the risk of surgery. Dr. Stan Farrell, whose office is located in Scottsdale, Arizona, is a Diplomate with the American Board of Orofacial Pain, making him one of the best choices for head and neck pain including temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). Dr. Stan Farrell is now conducting PRP injection trials for the TMD joint and will soon be offering this treatment to his patients as another alternative to surgery. If you or someone you know is experiencing symptoms of TMD, face, head, or neck pain, and to inquire about becoming a candidate for PRP therapy, please visit us at www.az-tmj.com or call us at 480-945-3692 to schedule your initial consultation today.
