When it comes to innovative technologies and procedures for treatment of chronic pain conditions, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cells have the potential to be powerful remedies in the field of regenerative medicine.
These injection technologies, which may be used alone or in conjunction with one another, stimulate the body’s natural healing powers to repair and restore damaged tissues from injuries such as tears, cartilage damage or overuse conditions.
Among the reasons many patients prefer PRP and stem cell pain treatments is that these outpatient procedures are minimally invasive and cause little discomfort, while providing relief that promotes healing, unlike other therapies.
PRP and Stem Cells – What’s the Difference?
PRP stimulates the body to heal itself by way of a concentration of platelets (cells within the blood containing growth & restorative factors) injected into damaged areas of the body.
PRP injections are commonly used for increased healing and repair of injuries such as:
- Muscle strains
- Shoulder injuries
- Ligament sprains
Stem Cell or Medicinal Signaling Cells (MSC’s) injections utilize a concentration of your body’s own cells to help renew and repair joint damage in the body.
MSC’s are often used to treat conditions such as:
- Osteoarthritis (degenerative arthritis)
- Cartilage damage
- Osteochondral defects
- Rotator cuff tears
It is a testament to the effectiveness of PRP and stem cell therapies that professional athletes commonly turn to these powerful treatments to overcome even severe sports injuries.
In many cases, patients may avoid invasive and debilitating surgeries by instead opting for PRP and stem cell technologies.
