Our bodies are under constant stress throughout life. Athletes and people who live active lifestyles are even more at risk of experiencing injuries such as tears, joint pain, and muscle pain. The professionals at Phoenix Regenerative Medicine are at the forefront of regenerative medicine and non-surgical treatments for healing injuries and restoring body function. For patients looking for relief from musculoskeletal pain or injury, we offer Regenerative Medicine Injections.
What are Regenerative Medicine Injections?
There are two types of injections that can be used to heal injuries. There include platelet rich plasma (PRP) and OrthoBiologics. These minimally-invasive and safe injectables utilize the ultra healing benefits of PRP and OrthoBiologics in order to encourage the natural healing processes within the body. This is effective at beginning the natural healing process in injured areas of the body.
PRP Regenerative Medicine Injections
PRP treatments are performed through the use of the patient’s own blood. When your body is injured, the body’s natural response is to release platelets and white blood cells from the blood to begin the healing process. With advances in the medical industry, specialists are able to concentrate this process for faster healing. This is done by first collecting a small sample of the patient’s own blood. It is then placed in a specialized centrifuge where it is rapidly spun in order to separate the PRP from the rest of the blood. Once collected, the platelet rich plasma is directly delivered to the targeted area through injection. Once delivered, the PRP begins it’s natural function of healing within the area.
The use of OrthoBiologics is revolutionizing orthopaedic care transitioning many common orthopaedic injuries that used to be treated surgically to procedures with minimal to no “down time.” When the body is injured and suffers from inflammation, the natural process of tissue growth factors rush to the area to stimulate cells leading to the onset of improvement of the damaged tissue and regeneration. The combination of the body’s own healing response and OrthoBiologics assists the rate and the quality of the healing process.
