PRP therapy is a treatment that utilizes your body’s natural healing powers to treat injured and damaged tissue.
PRP is plasma with a higher concentration of platelets. Your blood is made up of plasma (liquid), red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
When you have a cut, your blood sends over platelets to stop the bleeding. That injury also activates the special proteins and growth factors in the platelets that heal the cut.
PRP therapy provides your injured or diseased tissue with a high dose of platelets, aiming to accelerate the healing.
Advanced Spine and Pain Clinics uses PRP therapy for orthobiologics, functional medicine, and aesthetic services. More specifically, the team provides PRP therapy for:
Sports medicine treats sports injuries. The team may recommend PRP therapy to support the healing of your injury.
Joint pain is common and may develop from an acute injury, overuse, or a degenerative condition (arthritis). Advanced Spine and Pain Clinics provides PRP therapy to ease knee pain, shoulder pain, hip pain, elbow pain, and ankle pain.
Advanced Spine and Pain Clinics offers aesthetic services, using PRP therapy to rejuvenate your appearance.
When injected into the skin with a needle or through microneedling, PRP therapy boosts collagen production, improving your skin’s natural strength and elasticity.
Advanced Spine and Pain Clinics provides PRP therapy for hair loss. The team injects the PRP directly into the balding areas of the scalp, stimulating dormant hair follicles and prolonging the hair growing phase to improve hair thickness.
The details of your PRP therapy at Advanced Spine and Pain Clinics depend on the reason for the treatment. Your provider reviews the specifics of your therapy at your consultation so you know what to expect.
First, they prepare your PRP, clean the treatment site, and inject the plasma and platelets into the desired area. The team may recommend a series of injections to get the most benefit.
