PRP and Stem Cell Injections
Utilizing the stem cells from the patient’s own body minimizes the risk of infections. Depending on the cause of treatment, there are different types of stem cells that can be extracted from the human body to alleviate pain, improve organs, and/or rejuvenate skin conditions.
Different types of Stem Cells used for treatment
The ADSC is a stem cell harvested from fat. The withdrawal of fat fluid for stem cell injection treatment is known as Lipoaspiration. Lipoaspiration referred to as a mini-liposuction, does not affect the appearance of the body due to the minimal amount of fat that is removed, generally 10cc – 20cc. BMAC, the bone marrow stem cell, is collected from the hip and is utilized for transfusions for cancer therapies, whereas PRP is loaded with platelet cells with growth factors that stimulate the healing process. The extracted vital fluids all require the same cell preparation and are each spun in a centrifuge at a special gravitational force that separates the stem cells in the fat, bone marrow, or blood. Based on the reason for treatment, all three types of stem cells (ADSC, BMAC, & PRP) can be blended. The stem cells can be administered back into the patient’s body through injections directly into the source of pain or through an intravenous infusion. The stem cells seek out damaged tissues and quickly transform into the type of cell required to repair the body.
- Adipose-Derived Stem Cells (ADSC)
- Bone Marrow Stem Cells (BMAC)
- Platelet Rich Plasma Stem Cells (PRP)
Stem Cell therapy can treat the following
Stem Cell therapy is effective in healing and regenerating different conditions. It expedites the time for wounds and injuries to heal and it can reduce chronic pain with less obligation of medication. Parkinson’s disease, Lupus, Hepatitis, and Arthritis are some of the diseases that stem cells can benefit. Typically, patients can require treatment anywhere from a week to about a 3-month period. The healing and/or repair of the issue begins immediately when stem cells are re-inserted into the damaged area. Patients generally begin to see improvements in mobility and overall function by the first and second treatment results varying on the patient’s condition.
- Orthopedic Injuries
- Neurological Diseases
- Cardiac/Pulmonary Issues
- Auto Immune Diseases/Arthritis
- Cosmetic Appearance
- Wounds and Incisions
Benefits of Stem Cell / PRP procedures
- Decreases inflammation
- Natural regeneration of the body
- Accelerates tissue repair
- Stimulates new growth of collagen, blood vessels, & cartilage.
Stem Cell/PRP therapy is a great alternative for patients seeking non-surgical possibilities to not only improve degenerative disorders and injuries but also to enable the likelihood of facilitating daily activities.
