Turn back time with Natural, Regenerative healing

PRP Therapy

Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP therapy, is comprised of powerful growth factors that provide enormous healing and regenerative benefits. When growth factors are introduced to an area that is acutely or chronically injured, our patients experience healing benefits that could not be obtained from traditional medicine. These growth factors provide healing because they are a natural component of our blood. These cells are harvested from the patient in a concentration that is 3-4 times greater when isolated correctly. So, when growth factors are injected into the area of injury, these cells work at a much greater capacity. PRP can be an effective treatment option for patients who may not be a candidate for Stem Cell Therapy.

Using Physical Medicine to Enhance Results

At Synergy Medical Center, Stem Cell and PRP Therapy may be combined with rehabilitative exercises and, in some cases, Viscosupplementation and chiropractic care. These options are all offered based on the type of injury and the extent of care required. Patients have a greater chance of success by increasing the range of motion in the joint and strengthening the supportive joint structures. This comprehensive approach can alleviate the potential cause that led to tissue degeneration. Synergy Medical Center’s approach adds longevity to the procedure and decreases the risk of redeveloping degenerative changes in the same area.

When Will You See a Difference?

Most patients will see results in as little as 4 weeks! And regeneration may continue to improve for up to 6 months. The rate at which regeneration and healing occur can vary based on several factors, such as adherence to post-procedure orders, the degree of injury, and the area being treated. If the desired results are not achieved, your Synergy Medical Center provider will determine if another injection could add further benefits.

Once treated, your results are permanent unless the cause of injury remains. This is why we strongly suggest corrective exercise to be completed at Synergy Medical Center while you are healing.

What To Expect From Synergy Medical's PRP Therapy

  • Initial Consult
  • Testing & Diagnostics
  • Treatment
  • Follow-up
  • Cost & Financing

For your initial visit, you will meet with one of our medical providers either in office or on a telehealth consultation. They will review your medical and surgical history, current medications and supplements, allergies, previous treatments tried, and any X-rays or MRIs you may have. The medical provider will determine if PRP therapy near me may be an option for you based on your condition.

If PRP therapy is an option for your condition, the medical provider will do a focused examination on the affected area. This examination may include range of motion, muscle testing, orthopedic tests, reflexes, and palpation of the joint or area of complaint. If it is determined that additional imaging is needed such as X-ray or MRI, those studies will be ordered. The medical provider will discuss your options and treatment plan including risks, alternatives, and benefits of the PRP therapy.

You may have to stop NSAIDs such as Aleve, Ibuprofen, or aspirin as well as blood thinners prior to your PRP treatment. The medical provider will review which medications to stop prior to the procedure.  On the day of your treatment, approximately 30ml of blood will be drawn from your vein and placed in a centrifuge to obtain the platelet rich plasma. While this is being done, the areas to be injected will be examined under an ultrasound, marked with a surgical marker, and cleansed with a disinfectant. Depending on the area injected, lidocaine or cold spray may be used to reduce any pain from the injection. Ultrasound or fluoroscopic guidance is used to ensure proper placement of the needle and after the needle is removed, a bandage is applied. Post procedure instructions will be given to you including scheduled follow up visits, when medications can be started, and what to expect after an injection. Many patients drive themselves home after their appointment but can choose to have a family member present.

PRP therapy usually involves 1 to 4 injections spaced 3 to 6 weeks apart, depending on the problem area. Other therapies such as physical rehabilitation, K-laser treatment, or bracing may be included in your care plan.

Platelet rich plasma injections are not typically covered services under medical insurance. However, many times the initial examination, imaging, and other additional services may be covered by medical insurance. You may even have the option to use an FSA or HSA (Health Savings Account) to cover PRP therapy or other regenerative medicine therapies.

I was bone on bone in my left knee and was told that I needed a knee replacement about 5 years ago.   I didn’t want to have surgery at my age so I decided to try stem cell therapy. It’s been almost 3 months since my treatment and I feel like a new man. No more pain and I can finally play tennis again. Thank you to all at synergy for treating me like family and saving my knee. I am forever grateful. If you are thinking about trying stem cells, do it.

I spent 10 years with pain in my back. I tried physical therapy, shots, and thought that I just had to live with it. I went to a seminar about stem cells figured I would look into it since I tried everything else. My first visit was with the nurse practitioner who reviewed my MRI and said that I would be able to do stem cells in my low back. I had my shots a week later by the pain management doctor and it’s been 2 and a half months and I’m happy to say that I am about 80% better. I am ecstatic that I decided to give stem cells a try. I recommend synergy to everyone I know.
