Stem Cell Therapy FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions [FAQs]
What is PRP and why is it used with Stem Cell Therapy?
PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, is blood plasma that has a high autologous concentration of a group of cells called platelets. A small amount of your blood is drawn, and the platelets in the blood are separated from other components using a centrifuge. The concentrated blood is then administered back into the body, in the problem area. The cells release growth factors and other proteins that promote wound healing in bone and soft tissue. When we inject PRP, the high concentration of platelets delivers powerful doses of growth factors that accelerate and enhance tissue repair and healing. Theses growth factors also attract Stem Cells to the site of injury. When injecting PRP, more than one injection is recommended to maximize results.
