Regenerative medicine harnesses the body’s natural ability to heal itself using your own platelet-rich plasma. This therapy not only heals past injuries and wear on the body over time, but also relieves pain, and increases mobility for certain conditions.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma?
We know some patients don’t like to talk about blood, but to understand what Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is and how it works, it is important to distinguish the four main components of blood. Your body’s blood is made up of Red and White blood cells as well as Platelets and Plasma. Introducing high concentrations of Platelets and Plasma encourage growth factors that promote healing and regeneration of injured tissues. Because we collect PRP from your own body, it is 100% natural.
PRP injections are becoming an increasingly popular alternative to surgery. Whether you are an elite athlete, “Weekend Warrior”, or a working mother who cannot afford the luxury of downtime, regenerative therapies, including PRP, are an effective and safe nonsurgical therapy to treat some forms of chronic pain.
Where Does PRP Come From?
Simply put PRP is taken from your own blood. To harvest PRP, we collect a small amount of your blood with a specialized collecting system. From here the blood is placed into a machine (centrifuge) that separates the growth factors (plasma) and platelets. Because your own blood is used, there is no risk of a transmissible infection and a low risk of allergic reaction.
After we collect PRP one of our trained physician use a small needle introduces your own platelet-rich plasma into the affected area under guided ultrasound or fluoroscopy. Treating pain and injury at the site jump-starts the healing process A single procedure is usually complete in less than 15 minutes, at which time the physician will provide post-procedure instructions. PRP’s natural healing process intensifies the body’s efforts by delivering a higher concentration of platelets and regenerative growth factors directly into the area in need.
