Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
- Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a revolutionary new treatment that relieves pain by promoting long lasting healing of musculoskeletal conditions. The healing properties of PRP therapy are attributed to the increased concentration of growth factors and secretory proteins that enhance the healing process on a cellular level. PRP therapy has gained recent popularity because many professional athletes find the beneficial benefits of this therapy allows them to return to the playing field with rapid healing of their condition
What Conditions are treated with PRP?
- Common Orthopedic conditions treated with PRP include conditions involving:
Shoulder Disorders (Arthritis, Bursitis and Rotator Cuff Repairs)
Tendonitis such as Tennis Elbow
Achilles tendon problems
Heel spur syndrome
Osteoarthritis of the knee including anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries
Hip arthritis Low back pain
Pelvic pain and instability
Back and neck injuries
- Basically, any condition treated with Prolotherapy and be treated with Platelet Rich Plasma
How does PRP therapy help?
- Platelets are a normal part of our blood and called to action when there is damage to blood vessels in our body. These specialized cells are packed with numerous growth and healing factors that initiate repair and attract the assistance of stem cells that also greatly promote healing. PRP therapy’s natural healing process intensifies the body’s efforts by delivering a higher concentration of platelets. This platelet-rich plasma contains a 3-5 fold increase in growth factor concentration.
What can I expect during my office visit?
- The PRP process involves the collection of a small sample of blood (similar to a lab test sample). This blood is placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from other cells in the blood such as red and white blood cells. The concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) can now be collected and is then injected into and around the point of injury, jump-starting and significantly strengthening the body’s natural healing signal. Because your own blood is used, there is no risk of a transmissible infection and a very low risk of allergic reaction.
How long does it take?
- The procedure takes approximately one to two hours and is performed safely in our office without the risks of surgery, general anesthesia, or hospital stays. In fact, most people return to their jobs or usual activities right after the procedure.
What are the expected results?
- Because the goal of PRP therapy is to resolve pain through healing, it could prove to have lasting results. Initial improvement may be seen within a few weeks, gradually increasing as the healing progresses. Research studies and clinical practice have shown PRP therapy to be very effective at relieving pain and returning patients to their normal lives. Both ultrasound and MRI studies have shown definitive tissue repair after PRP therapy, confirming the benefits of this healing process. The need for surgery can also be greatly reduced by treating injured tissues before the damage progresses and the condition is irreversible.
- The Prolo-PRP IV is a specialized intravenous mixture of vitamins, minerals and amino acids to maximize the effects of regenerative medicine injections such as PRP performed at Scottsdale Pain Rehabilitation and Wellness. This specialized IV promotes the healing and regeneration of damaged and weakened tissues such as ligament, tendon and cartilage. With intravenous nutrition, the nutrients are delivered directly into the blood stream rather than being absorbed by the intestines. The time to complete the Prolo-PRP IV is 2 hours.
