Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Platelet-Rich Plasma (or PRP) Therapy is a non-surgical procedure that uses your body’s natural healing abilities to heal injuries. During the procedure, some of the patient’s own blood is placed in a centrifuge, where platelets and growth and healing factors are separated. These materials are then injected into the injury site to stimulate repair without causing clots.
Advanced Platelet Procedures
Regenexx PL-(Platelet Lysate)-Platelets slowly release their growth factors in a timed release fashion to help healing. However, there are times when the physician wants all of the growth factors contained in platelets immediately available to the area to prompt healing. In addition, there are areas of the body where using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) may cause too much inflammation. As a result, our physicians create Regenexx-PL by cracking open the platelets to allow all of the growth factors to be immediately available to your body.
