Regenerative medicine is a branch of medical treatment that focuses on using your body’s natural properties to regrow, repair, or replace human cells, tissues, or organs that have been damaged by injury or disease. These therapies harness your body’s natural ability to grow tissues and organs to help re-establish normal function and improve your health in the long run.
The team at Spine & Sports Medical Group specializes in platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to treat a range of musculoskeletal issues. Platelets are the part of your blood responsible for clotting and healing when you suffer an injury. PRP therapy uses injections of a concentrated platelet solution to speed up your recovery from an injury or repair cells and tissues damaged by diseases.
At your PRP therapy session, a Spine & Sports Medical Group team member draws blood from your arm and runs it through a centrifuge. This machine separates a solution of concentrated blood plasma from the other components of your blood, like red and white blood cells.
The platelet-rich solution is injected back into your body with a targeted precision that delivers the serum directly into the area where you are experiencing pain. The injection speeds up your recovery and relieves pain by increasing the number of reparative cells your body produces and stimulating tissue regeneration.
Regenerative therapies like PRP are used to treat a wide range of musculoskeletal issues, like diseases and acute injuries to your tendons, muscles, ligaments, and more.
Some specific conditions the practice treats with PRP include:
The practice performs PRP therapy in-house, and most sessions are completed within two hours.
What are the benefits of regenerative therapies like PRP over traditional surgery?
The PRP injection procedure is a minimally invasive, highly effective treatment that can deliver permanent results. PRP therapy has a much shorter recovery period compared to traditional surgery.
PRP also has the added benefit of a very low risk of adverse reactions, since the platelet solution used in your therapy is derived from your own blood. This reduces the risk of surgical complications relating to anesthesia, the surgery itself, or allergies to other materials.
