Stem Cell Infusion

What is it?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is created when blood is taken from a patient's vein and placed in a special centrifuge to concentrate platelets (usually 3-5 times their normal concentration). After the PRP is prepared, treatments are administered via IV infusion for maximum effectiveness. Upon infusion, these supercharged platelets rush to the affected tissue (joints, ligaments or tendons, for example), and initiate a deposition of new collagen. The healing process is then initiated and controlled by bioactive proteins found in platelets, plasma and white blood cells. This results in the accelerated repair of damaged tissue.

How does it work?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments work by supplying injured areas with bioactive growth factors such as: natural proteins, cytokines, and stem cells.

PRP treatment is often used to treat the following conditions:

  • Arthritis or osteoarthritis, especially those with degenerative knee cartilage
  • A torn ligament
  • Tendonitis
  • A bulging or herniated disc
  • Injuries due to sports or exercising (such “tennis elbow,” plantar fasciitis in runners, or common injuries affecting the rotator cuff)
  • Sacroiliac problems
  • Sciatica/sciatic nerve pain
  • Common hand injuries experienced by younger and middle-aged adults, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, Skier’s or “Gamekeepers” thumb and “Texting thumb”
  • Chronic pain in any susceptible area such as the neck, lower back, knees or shoulders
  • Instability, loss of balance, stiffness and loss of flexibility/range of motion
