Nutley Regenerative Medicine: PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy
Non-Surgical & Minimally Invasive Alternatives for Natural Healing
At Options Rehab, regenerative Medicine is the umbrella term used to describe some of the safe and non-surgical therapy alternatives used to treat a wide range of joint and musculoskeletal conditions.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is a revolutionary newer injection therapy treatment that can relieve pain by promoting long lasting healing of musculoskeletal conditions. PRP treatment is a natural, non-surgical treatment that involves the injection of healing compounds from a patient’s own blood directly into the problem area.
How it Works
A small amount of blood is obtained from the patient and is placed into a centrifuge system that spins and separates the blood and separates the platelets from the other cells in the blood plasma.. The Platelet-Rich-Plasma can then be collected and injected into the injured area of bone or soft tissue. This introduces a high concentration of growth factors, which stimulates the body’s natural repair process to increase healing, calm symptoms and decrease inflammation.
Advantages of PRP
PRP is derived from the patient’s own body which results in virtually no risk of allergy or rejection. It is much safer than cortisone injections and surgical interventions. The injections are performed under ultrasound or fluoroscopic guidance to ensure the proper administration of PRP to the exact location.
Some Conditions That PRP Can Help With Are:
- Meniscus Tears
- Joint Tendonitis
- Joint Bursitis
- Joint Osteoarthritis
- And Much More…
