Recent medical advances have given us techniques and therapies that go beyond resolving a patient’s pain. These techniques heal and rejuvenate patients, bringing balance and relief back to their life.
Platlet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is blood plasma with many more platelets than is typically found in it. The amount of platelets — and the concentration of growth factors — can be 5 to 10 times greater (or richer) than typical blood plasma.
To develop PRP, we first must draw blood from a patient. Then we use a process called centrifugation to separate the platelets from other blood cells and increase their concentration. The increased concentration of platelets is then combined with the remaining blood.
Stem cells replenish and support your blood, bone, and other vital tissues and body systems. Research suggests the decline in the number and viability of stem cells plays a role in the physical decline associated with aging.
At Preferred Spine and Pain, we can cryopreserve your cells now, so that you have a reserve of your own young stem cells for future use.
