The Healing Benefits of Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative medicine is an advantageous form of treatment that uses the body’s very own properties to promote healing and recovery. Many treatment modalities can be utilized, depending upon your specific condition. Each year, millions of Americans suffer from chronic pain and physical injuries and will often pursue traditional forms of treatment to assist with the recovery process. However, as regenerative medicine grows in popularity, many pain sufferers find relief from treatments like Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP). Gaining an understanding of PRP and the various treatment options available at the Pain & Arthritis Relief Center can assist in determining whether regenerative medicine is the proper form of treatment for what may be ailing you.

Understanding Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a high concentration of blood platelets extracted from the human body. These platelets are proteins that assist with the healing process by stimulating cell growth. When these platelets are injected into the affected area of the body, platelets allow the body to heal much faster than it typically would. The process begins by drawing blood from the patient and putting it through a centrifuge device. The centrifuge spins the blood, separating the red blood cells from the plasma. Once the injection is prepared, an experienced professional will carefully administer the injection to the targeted area. To ensure the injection is placed precisely to the affected area, most doctors utilize imaging such as an ultrasound machine and fluoroscopy. For example, PRP may be injected into a joint, tendon, or ligament to stimulate the area and encourage healing. PRP may be especially beneficial to areas of the body that have had difficulty healing in the past.

More on PRP

PRP is an alternative form of treatment for those injured or are dealing with musculoskeletal conditions. These injuries may result from a degenerative disease such as osteoarthritis or from an accident. Ligament tears, tendon tears, sprained ankles, and more can be treated with PRP. Whether a person has recently been injured or has been recovering from an injury that won’t heal. There are several benefits to PRP, including:

  • A minimally invasive procedure 
  • Very little pain other than a minor injection
  • Very little downtime post-procedure is required, although it’s important to note that you may feel sore for a few days after the procedure
  • Treatments are short, lasting anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour
  • Can heal and reduce inflammation 
  • Can offer long-lasting relief
