PLATELET RICH PLASMA
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is an exciting new branch of musculoskeletal medicine that allows patients to heal and recover from chronic pain and/or injuries of the tendons, muscles, ligaments, cartilage, discs, nerves, and more. PRP has multiple advantages to alternative treatments and surgery. PRP incorporates your bodies natural healing to repair and regenerate tissue and structures. Healing is relatively quick and inflammation will usually start to decrease in 7-14 days. The full healing may take 6-12 weeks. The treatment is safe, non-surgical, and doesn’t require drugs.
PRP has been used for many years in surgical applications and commonly in professional athletics. These Regenerative Medicine techniques have been used to treat multiple conditions that include: arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis as well as spine conditions, including annular tears and disc problems, herniated and bulging discs, and other degenerative conditions. Regenerative Medicine offers a natural healing option to avoid side effects of medications and risks of surgery.
More and more studies continue to emerge supporting the efficacy of PRP with multiple conditions and locations. At Advanced Pain Management and Rehab, we use the most technologically advanced equipment that provides for optimal concentration of the Platelets and science support post-procedure rehab protocols to obtain optimal results and help you return to your sport or recreation.

PRP has multiple advantages to alternative treatments and surgery. PRP incorporates your bodies natural healing to repair and regenerate tissue and structures. There is no scaring or incisions associated with the procedure. Healing is relatively quick and inflammation will usually start to decrease in 7-14 days. The full healing may take 6-12 weeks, as there are some time needs for the healing and regenerative process to occur.
Safety is always a critical concern of any procedures preformed at APMR. PRP procedures had very few complications and risks associated with the procedure. There are actually some infection fighting cells (white blood cells) that are included in the PRP mixture which add natural defenses against infection and provide additional safety benefit to the procedure.
