Neurotherapy, What To Expect

Neurotherapy, also called neurofeedback, is used to analyze why a patient may be having physical symptoms based on what is happening at that specific time in his or her brain. If you are looking to try Neurotherapy, you can expect to have your brain activity tracked while receiving real-time feedback from your doctor. Your doctor will use an EEG (electroencephalography) to watch your brain activity. One it has been tracked, the physician will then explain what they see and why it is happening. They will provide feedback as your brain activity is changing, allowing you to better understand what is going on in your body.

This type of therapy connects the mind and body and helps a patient to understand why physiological and physical symptoms are occurring and how they work together. Neurotherapy is used to understand why symptoms of anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder and a variety of other symptoms are occurring.

Platelet Rich Plasma Injections Pros & Cons

Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets. Blood is taken from an individual and is spun in a centrifuge to concentrate and separate out the platelets and plasma. The sample is then injected back into the patient in the infected area. This method is used to heal the body through its own resources. The blood is injected into an area that is damaged or diseased and the PRP helps to rebuild the tissue. This method is safe and minimally invasive. You can expect at least 1-4 treatments needed to heal the injury.

The pros of Platelet Rich Plasma is that it is a safe, minimally invasive technique that uses the body’s own resources to heal, rebuild tissue, strengthen weak muscles, improve joint and muscle function and decrease chronic pain. PRP can accelerate the healing process and encourages cell growth. Because Platelet Rich Plasma is filled with proteins, nutrients and growth factors, it helps damaged tissue to quickly repair. It is an affordable treatment used to treat arthritis, tendonitis, torn muscles and ligaments and usually repairs faster than other treatments.

There aren’t many cons to Platelet Rich Plasma injections. Some patients may experience more pain or soreness in the area that has been treated. There may be no improvement to the injured area or the skin around the injected area may appear bruised or discolored. There might be a minor chance of an artery or vein being damaged due to needle usage, which can then cause a blood clot to form. If you have any sort of negative reaction to PRP injections, it’s important to contact your doctor immediately. Call us at (248) 876-4242 today.
