Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Re-administration of your own platelets to activate your body’s natural healing

Platelet Rich Plasma From a Simple Blood Draw

PLATELET RICH PLASMA THERAPY (PRP) IS THE RE-ADMINISTRATION OF YOUR OWN PLATELETS TO ACTIVATE THE BODY’S NATURAL HEALING CASCADE FOR REPAIR AND REGENERATION.

WE USE PRP ALONE OR IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER REGENERATIVE MEDICINE PROCEDURES.

PRP has been successfully used for the management of several musculoskeletal conditions such as ligamentous tear, joint inflammatory disorders, torn tendons and muscular ailments.

Platelet rich plasma injections are replacing traditional orthopedic surgery in many instances for conditions such as:

•  Soft tissue injuries

•  Tendonitis

•  Muscle tears

•  Ligamentous injuries

•  Various joint afflictions

•  Torn meniscus

•  Mild joint arthritis

Platelet Rich Plasma is prepared by centrifuging a small amount of a patient’s blood to obtain a platelet-rich sample. The platelets are activated and then injected under ultrasound or X-ray guidance. In most cases, the treatment can be completed in one session.

More than one course of PRP may be required and can be safely performed depending upon the response to the therapy and clinical indications.

PRP AS PART OF STEM CELL TREATMENT

Once introduced, the platelets then release signal proteins and growth factors which activate the stem cells to divide rapidly. Stem cells by themselves are limited in their ability to repair the injured area. For their maximal effect, stem cells have to be properly directed, and platelets perform this function. In effect, stem cells are construction workers and the platelets are their supervisors. Once they are activated, these stem cells perform a variety of valuable functions. Apart from repairing damage to the injured areas, they help damaged cells repair themselves and participate in the repairing process in a process called Immunomodulation.

LIGHT ACTIVATION

We use light activation on our Platelet Rich Plasma. Light activation, which is also known as photomodulation or photoactivation, is thought to stimulate the growth factors within the platelet rich plasma in living cells.

ULTRASOUND OR X-RAY GUIDANCE

We use ultrasound guidance or x-ray fluoroscopy to increase the precision and accuracy of Platelet Rich Plasma administration and decrease the likelihood of complications.

Is Stem Cell Therapy
Right For You?

Although Stem Cell Therapy is considered by some people to be experimental, various research studies show that regenerative stem cell therapy and platelet rich plasma injections can provide excellent relief from joint and musculoskeletal pain and ongoing inflammation.
