Age, injured tissue, and degenerative diseases all have one thing in common: they wreak havoc on your body. As practitioners of regenerative medicine treatments and pain management, we offer an all-encompassing solution using platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP). We can help reduce the effects and signs of aging, lessen pain, and jumpstart your body’s natural ability to heal. PRP triggers the natural healing process of your body, allowing you to recover from issues that are negatively impacting your life.
PRP injections provide many benefits, including alleviating pain, the reparation of joints, tendons, and muscle injuries, restoring hair loss, and reducing the signs of aging. This treatment uses the platelet cells found in your own blood to naturally trigger your body’s healing process.
When your own platelet-concentrated plasma is injected into targeted areas of your body, it results in an amplified healing response that effectively begins to repair damaged bone and soft tissue.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
Our PRP therapy is part of the regenerative treatments we offer to aid in enhancing your body’s healing abilities.
One of the roles that platelets play in your blood is to help your body heal. When you cut yourself or even pop a zit, you will notice a clear fluid that is secreted from the wound or point of pressure. This clear liquid is the platelets contained in your blood, your body’s first defense against injury. The more platelets you can send to your injured areas, the more effective healing becomes.
PRP uses highly concentrated levels of platelets to harness your own built-in healing by drawing a small sample of your blood and separating the platelets. This provides us with a higher concentration of platelets that we can then inject into areas of your body to correct a number of issues including:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Elbow pain
- Joint pain
- Knee pain
- Damaged or degraded cartilage
- Torn ligaments
- Hip pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Disc problems
- Bone issues
- Aesthetic reduction of wrinkles and signs of aging
Once we have prepared your platelet-rich plasma, your treatment can begin. We will target the damaged areas of your body and inject your plasma to begin the remarkable healing process. The growth factors present in your plasma will start to work immediately, regenerating and restoring cells to repair the damage.
When used for aesthetics purposes, your plasma can be used in combination with cell therapy for visibly reduced wrinkles and long-lasting results. This procedure is often referred to as the Vampire Facelift®. Our patients are impressed by the startling results—a younger version of themselves.
As one of the most effective regenerative treatments available, PRP offers a safe and minimally invasive solution to handle your pain-related issues so you can get back to living a happier, healthier life.
