WHAT IS PLATELET RICH PLASMA THERAPY?

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy has been clinically proven to treat pain and encourage healing in the body. This procedure injects a high dose of platelets, concentrated from your own blood, directly into damaged or diseased tissue. These platelets have the ability to stimulate the body’s normal healing process with the ultimate goal of this technology being to restore the damage and achieve highest level of function possible.

THE PROCEDURE

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is concentrated from blood and bone marrow and then used to speed-up the body’s natural healing process of musculoskeletal problems. PRP injections are prepared by taking the patient’s own blood and dividing platelets that are then injected directly into the tissue to stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells.

SPINAL CONDITIONS THAT BENEFIT FROM PRP THERAPY

  • Lumbar disc disease
  • Cervical disc disease
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Nerve inflammation
  • Arthritic facet joints
  • Sacroiliac (SI) Joints

THE BENEFITS OF INTRADISCAL PRP

Intradiscal PRP offers substantial pain relief and significant improvement in function, enabling patients to return to even higher levels of activity than were possible before their procedure. This is an effective and efficient non-invasive procedure that can prevent more aggressive spinal fusion surgery and has the potential to cure the disc instead of alleviating symptoms. Intradiscal PRP is for patients who have not achieved pain relief through more conservative approaches.
