What is PRP and can you tell me more about Stem Cell Therapy?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell therapy are an important tool in regenerative medicine.  These are safe and natural treatment options that use your body's own healing properties.  Many times people are not surgical candidates, do not want surgery or have exhausted all conservative options. PRP and Stem Cell therapy can be a life changing option. PRP injections use the body's own platelets to accelerate injury healing. We often combine our PRP and Stem Cell therapy to provide optimal regeneration. The modalities use the individuals own healing system for injuries to tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints.  We also combine a plan with nutrition and IV vitamins/antioxidants to decrease inflammation and prepare the body for the therapy.

Depending on the area being treated, ultrasound may be used to visualize proper placement of the PRP and or Stem Cells. Many times peptide therapy is combined for improved results. Please see our peptide page.
