PRP Stem Cell Therapy Offers Hope for Long-Term Pain Relief
PRP stem cell therapy is a treatment that uses your own stem cells for healing. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is made from your own blood supply and injected directly into the injury site, and is sometimes used in conjunction with bone marrow cell concentrate (BMCC). We're using these therapies to help our patients recover and heal from chronic pain issues along with traditional treatments from our staff at Spinal Health & Rehab Integrative Medicine.
How Stem Cell Therapy Helps Assist in Healing
Stem cell therapy is a process that begins by drawing blood or bone marrow from a patient and isolating stem cells in a centrifuge. Once enough stem cells are collected, they're then injected into the injury site. The treatment itself is very straightforward and simple, but it's one that's been well-researched and found to be of benefit.
Under normal circumstances, the body heals itself and in a predictable amount of time. But as the body ages, or if there's an immune disorder present, the body doesn't heal as well as it should. The body doesn't do as good of a job as it once did when sending out the signal to heal. Cells don't get the message and don't show up to fill in the gap in the body. An injury that healed easily at a younger age now takes much longer to heal. And in the case of a chronic injury, the body doesn't keep up.
Injecting a large dose of your own stem cells into an area that's not healing is akin to jump-starting an engine. The body has an influx of fresh cells to use and gets to work filling in the gaps, stitching torn tissues together, and restoring function to the once-injured area. When stem cell therapy is successful, you can get to your regular round of tennis or golf in Port Charlotte and not feel the aches and pains like you once did.
