Don’t Let Pain Run Your Life – Ask Your Provider About Regenerative Medicine

Living with chronic pain is a daily struggle and finding relief can be challenging. We’re here for you. Regenerative Medicine involves delivering specific types of cells or natural derived biological products to help stimulate the natural healing process in a diseased or damaged area of your body. Our providers can accurately diagnose your pain and evaluate whether PRP therapy is the best treatment option for you.

Regenerative Medicine includes the cutting-edge therapy of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) which is currently not covered by insurance. Although many patients have seen positive results, this new therapy is still considered experimental.body

What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?

PRP is a biological means to stimulate normal wound healing and tissue regeneration. PRP Therapy has been effective in wound care and pain treatment. Traditionally, PRP is used to stimulate the healing of a tendon, ligament, bursa, or joint injury. Injections of PRP release substances known as “growth factors” that lead to tissue healing.

How the Procedure Works

PRP is a very simple, safe nonsurgical procedure performed by a qualified provider. Steps include:

  1. A sample of your blood is drawn and collected into a special device.
  2. The device will then be placed in a centrifuge machine to spin the blood so fast it isolates the purest platelet rich plasma.
  3. Your provider will then carefully inject your platelet rich plasma into the affected site.

PRP Recovery Timelines

High-impact activities should be avoided for several weeks. Most people are able to return to work the day after the procedure. Although recovery times can vary, patients generally may see improvement in pain and mobility after 4 to 6 weeks. Improvement could continue for up to 6 months.
