What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma and PRP Therapy?
Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP, 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.
