Boost Your Healing
Accelerate your own body's healing
Through regenerative medicine, a person can take advantage of their body's ability to heal itself by stimulating natural healing with a concentration of platelets from their own blood. Labratory and clinical research have shown that it is possible to achieve short-term and long-term pain relief for many orthopedic and soft tissue conditions.
A small sample of your own blood is processed to separate it into parts: Plasma, PRP (Platelets) and Red Blood Cells. The layer of blood containing the high concentration of platelets is injected into the damaged area to release millions of cytokines, specialized proteins, which
recruit nearby cells to participate in the healing cascade.
Platelets, after an injury or infection, release regenerative proteins that trigger a minimum inflammatory response in order to recruit nearby cells and blood vessels to the tissue to nourish and remodel the site into healthy natural tissue.
A Natural Alternative
By comparison, steroid injections only mask pain and can cause soft-tissue damage over time. This procedure can be done in-office or ASC in about 30 minutes, with minimal discomfort. Many patients see improvement after the first injection. The injections are normally offered as a series.
Side effects may include pain and inflammation at the injection site. Some bruising may occur. These side effects will usually subside in 2-5 days. Strenuous activities should be avoided the day of injection. Maintaining normal activities is encouraged.
PRP is being used to treat many chronic and acute degenerative conditions. The ideal candidate for PRP procedure is a patient who wants to use their body's own regenerative potential as an option to possibly delay or avoid more invasive surgical procedures.
