Pain Re­lief In­sti­tute Of­fers PRP as a sub­sti­tute to Steroid In­jec­tions to Lo­cal Res­i­dents

Chicago Sun-Times - - TOP NEWS -

Liv­ing with pain can feel like a crip­pling ex­pe­ri­ence. Noth­ing is worse than feel­ing great men­tally, but phys­i­cally feel­ing held back from life be­cause of knee, hip, shoul­der or back pain.

As we be­gin our post COVID-19 stay at home lives many lo­cal res­i­dents are be­gin­ning to re­sume phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity like go­ing for walks, go­ing to the gym or play­ing golf. PRI is here to help get you back in the swing of things quickly and pain free. Ad­di­tion­ally, many lo­cal res­i­dents have been forced to post­pone their elec­tive surg­eries or pro­ce­dures due to the pan­demic.

PRI would like to help, so with the as­sis­tance of our re­search part­ners and dis­trib­u­tors PRI has pro­cured $200,000 in do­nated Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) kits to aid res­i­dents in our com­mu­nity in get­ting pain re­lief with­out the use of steroid in­jec­tions for joint pain, epidu­rals for spinal pain and pre­scrip­tion med­i­ca­tion. PRP is pa­tient friendly with re­spect not in­creas­ing risk to COVID-19 due to sup­press­ing im­mune func­tion and also does not neg­a­tively af­fect the in­tegrity of the joint like steroid in­jec­tions of­ten do.

PRP is a com­pletely nat­u­ral bi­o­logic that is de­rived from the pa­tients own blood via a blood draw and takes less than 15 min­utes to ad­min­is­ter. The av­er­age cost of PRP in the Chicagolan­d area is ap­prox­i­mately $700. We com­pletely un­der­stand the fi­nan­cial im­pact that COVID-19 has taken on area res­i­dents so we are ex­cited to be of­fer­ing PRP at no cost for qual­i­fied pa­tients.

PRI is also proud to be the only group in Chicagolan­d of­fer­ing re­gen­er­a­tive op­tions for back and joint pain that is cov­ered by Medi­care and in­surance for qual­i­fied pa­tients.

Through re­search part­ner­ships with bi­o­log­ics labs and data anal­y­sis part­ner­ships,

PRI is main­tain­ing its mis­sion to stay on the fore­front of ad­vanced medicine and to make cut­ting edge re­gen­er­a­tive medicine ac­ces­si­ble to Chicago area res­i­dents.

To learn more about the ser­vices of­fered at Pain Re­lief In­sti­tute or to sched­ule an ap­point­ment at one of PRI’s Chicago area clin­ics or a Tele­Health con­sul­ta­tion call 312-248-6394.
