Whether you are an avid sportsman or a busy mom, no one wants to be sidelined by an injury. Besides the injury itself, the most commonly recommended treatment – which most likely will be pain management or surgery – and subsequent recovery period, can be frustrating and time consuming. That’s why stem cell and platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapies are becoming a very practical option for those who opt for a less invasive, more natural healing approach.
Stem Cells and PRP
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) and cellular therapies are used to heal injured tissue and relieve chronic pain by using the body’s own natural healing mechanisms to repair damaged tissue and regenerate new healthy tissue. For many, using PRP or stem cells therapies to promote tissue healing and regeneration is a much better option for reducing inflammation and lowering pain, especially when faced with the rigorous process of surgery, medication, physical therapy, and subsequent reduced activity.
There are very few conditions that can’t benefit from stem cell and PRP therapies, which have been used in the successful treatment of:
- Sprains and strains
- Tennis elbow
- Golfer’s elbow
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Back and neck pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Achilles tendonitis and tears
- Osteoarthritis of the knee
- Knee ligament injuries
- Spinal stenosis
- Facet joint syndrome
- Plus, many other conditions.
The Body Electric
The human body has an amazing capacity to heal itself. With stem cell therapy, healthy cells have the ability to multiply and target whatever injury or condition needs healing, then morph themselves into healthy cells within the body. In the case of PRP therapy, blood plasma is concentrated and enriched, to deliver a boost of healing factors to the area in need.
The benefits of regenerative therapy are extensive. By speeding up the healing process, PRP and cellular therapy can decrease pain and improve function within weeks, with little to no downtime. In addition, regenerative procedures are sometimes used in conjunction with surgery to reduce downtime, especially for athletes. In fact, platelet-rich plasma can even be utilized during surgery to provide the area with enriched and fresh plasma to promote healing on the spot.
For most patients, stem cell and PRP seem almost too good to be true. That’s why it is important to ask a lot of questions with experienced practitioners who can help determine if this sort of treatment is right for you or your loved one.
