Regenerative therapies are a spectrum of cutting edge therapeutic techniques that have been shown to help treat the cause of a painful condition rather than masking the symptom. Studies have shown regenerative therapies stimulate and accelerate your own body’s natural abilities. One of the most effective Regenerative therapies is platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy utilizes platelets taken from the patient’s own blood.
Platelets normally circulate within the blood stream and are responsible for blood clotting and initiating a healing response in an injury. Many injuries do not heal adequately and can lead to chronic pain and loss of function of the injured area. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy allows us to harvest the patient’s own platelets and re-inject those concentrated platelets into the site of the injury to initiate the bodies abilities and improvement of function. This is typically done under image guidance such as ultrasound and/or fluoroscopy.
PRP has shown to be successful in not only relieving pain, but also in jump-starting the bodies natural processes.
Injuries and conditions commonly treated with PRP Injections include:
- Back & Neck Pain
- Golfer's Elbow
- Osteoarthritis of the Knee, Hip & Shoulder
- Tennis Elbow
- Joint Injuries
- Ligament, Cartilage, & Tendon Injuries
All procedures are performed under the guidance of ultrasound or a fluoroscopy unit to maximize results. We’ve incorporated the latest innovations of APEX Biologix, which, through their equipment and supplies, help us obtain some of the best concentrations of PRP in the industry.
The Injection Procedure
Platelet rich plasma therapy injections are done at our office and take about an hour. Patients return home the same day and are often able to work the following day.
