Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet rich plasma offers fantastic regenerative power. It combats inflammation and delivers a substantial boost to your body’s natural healing power. If you’re dealing with an injury or another painful condition, platelet-rich plasma may be just what you need. Visit us for your free consultation and learn more about this highly sought-after regenerative treatment.
Platelets are a component of our blood cells. The main function of platelets is to regulate blood clotting, but they also play a crucial role in the healing process. When the body detects some form of trauma, a signal alerts the nearby platelets to rush to the scene. The more platelets available to target the area, the better they can deal with the issue.
Platelets do an outstanding job of accelerating the body’s natural healing ability. The regenerative process starts with soothing inflammation and then stimulating the repair of damaged cells.
Platelets are so effective due to their high concentration of growth factors and cytokines. These are molecules, including proteins and peptides, that play a significant role in the body’s immune system. Important cytokines and growth factors enhanced by the preparation of platelet-rich plasma include:
- Connective tissue growth factor
- Fibroblast growth factor
- Insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1)
- Interleukin 8
- Keratinocyte growth factor
- Platelet-derived growth factor
- Transforming growth factor beta
- Vascular endothelial growth factor
We prepare your platelet-rich plasma injection right here at the clinic using a small sample of your blood. Using the latest precision technology, we separate the blood, concentrating the platelets into the plasma that is then injected back into the area that’s causing pain. The safe, natural injection poses little to no risk of an adverse reaction since it is made from your own blood.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
The benefits of platelet-rich plasma therapy include:
- Effective relief for both chronic and acute pain
- Can be used in conjunction with stem cells
- The treatment causes little to no discomfort
- No downtime after treatment
- A natural alternative to dangerous surgery or pharmaceuticals
One of the reasons platelet-rich plasma has gained popularity so rapidly is its effectiveness in treating such a wide range of conditions. Patients have experienced significant improvements for:
- Knee injuries
- Damaged cartilage
- Sciatica, disc problems, and other back pain
- Joint pain in the elbow, hip, or shoulder
- Neck pain
- Ligament tears
- Plantar fasciitis and other foot pain
- Bone issues
- And other conditions
Platelet-rich plasma is also increasingly being used in aesthetic treatments.
Platelet-rich plasma is a simple yet powerful treatment for many people suffering from mild to chronic pain, providing lasting relief and allowing them to lead normal lives again.
While platelet rich plasma is highly effective as a stand-alone treatment, it is also frequently combined with stem cell treatments, depending on the patient's treatment goals. These two therapies combine into an incredibly powerful regenerative force within the body. We will help you determine if this approach is the right one for you.
