In a medical field known as regenerative medicine, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Regenerative Cells are innovative technologies that have proven to be effective methods for the treatment of many chronic pain conditions.
PRP and Regenerative cells may be used separately or together, depending on the pain condition, by means of injection that stimulates the body’s natural healing powers to repair and restore damaged tissues from injuries.
Such injuries may include:
- Cartilage damage
- Conditions resulting from overuse
Many chronic pain patients prefer PRP and Regenerative cell pain treatments because these outpatient procedures are minimally invasive and cause little discomfort.
Unlike other therapies, these treatment methods promote healing in addition to providing pain relief.
The Difference Between PRP and Regenerative Cells
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
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
Regenerative cell injections utilize a concentration of your body’s own cells to help renew and repair joint damage in the body, and are often used to treat conditions such as:
- Osteoarthritis (degenerative arthritis)
- Cartilage damage
- Osteochondral defects
- Rotator cuff tears
Professional athletes often turn to these innovative treatment methods to overcome sports injuries of all severities.
Many patients opt for PRP and Regenerative cell technologies as effective alternatives to invasive and debilitating surgeries.
