Regenerate rather than replace your joints, tendons, muscles, skin, and wounds with Regenerative InjectionTherapy with Growth Factors in Platelets Rich Plasma (PRP)and Kinines in Platelets Poor Plasma (PPP).
PRP therapy strengthens and heals arthritic and strained joints, tendons, ligaments, muscles, and skin — including non-healing wounds and aging skin of your face. PRP injections can be performed all over the body. It is a natural regenerative method of treatment of sports injuries, arthritic joints, lower back pain, disc disease, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, ACL and meniscal tears, shin splints, rotator cuff tears, plantar fasciitis, iliotibial band syndrome, pyriformis syndrome, tennis/golfer’s elbow, sprained/torn muscles, and aging skin.
If you have a tendon, ligament, muscle tear or arthritic joint, then PRP injections may the solution. It is less aggressive and less expensive than surgery. It will heal tissue and alleviate further degeneration of the tissue.
How does PRP Therapy work? To prepare PRP, a small amount of blood is taken from the patient. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins and automatically produces the PRP. The entire process takes less than 15 minutes and increases the concentration of platelets and growth factors up to 500 percent.
When PRP is injected into the damaged area it stimulates the tendon or ligament, causing mild inflammation that triggers the healing cascade. As a result new collagen begins to develop. As this collagen matures it begins to shrink causing the tightening and strengthening of the tendons or ligaments of the damaged area.
The initial consultation with the doctor will determine if PRP/PPP therapy is right for you.
This technique is used for treatment of the following conditions:
- Arthritic Joints
- Ankle and Foot
- Plantar Fascitis
- Lower Leg/ Muscles Tears
- Hip – Pelvis – Sacroiliac Joints
- Wrist & Hand
- Middle and Lower Back
- Non-Healing Wounds
- Face (rejuvenating / esthetic medicine procedure called “vampire face lift “= PRP subdermal and intradermal injections)
