Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a non-surgical option for a range of orthopedic conditions, including joint arthritis, ligament sprains and tendon injuries. This treatment utilizes the body’s natural healing response to promote tissue repair and accelerate healing with a concentration of platelets and their growth factors injected into damaged joints, tendons, or ligaments.

At The Orthohealing Method, we offer this innovative treatment to potentially reduce symptoms including stiffness, swelling, tenderness, inflammation, and pain. We offer on-site training in PRP including hours of comprehensive education, proctored cases, and certification as a highly-skilled regenerative physician. Our network of physicians practice PRP at the highest level incorporating outcome tracking to ensure best results and innovation.

PRP Defined

Platelet-rich plasma is simply plasma with a higher concentration of platelets than normally found in whole blood. While platelets are important for blood clotting, they are also rich in growth factors to aid in injury healing and to trigger the natural reparative processes.

Following over 20 years of combined experience in biologics, we understand the great variability in cellular preparations, commercial kits available, and a general lack of injection protocols that can affect outcomes. In addition to maximized results, we emphasize the importance of the patient experience from start to finish.

Orthohealing Method physicians always perform PRP injections with ultrasound or fluoroscopic guidance. This allows for accurate visualization of the targeted areas while avoiding trauma to surrounding tissue and structures.

Conditions Treated with Platelet-Rich Plasma

PRP therapy has been applied to an array of musculoskeletal injuries, and has exhibited positive results in most, although further clinical trials are necessary to better understand ideal applications. At the Orthohealing Center, we’ve successively used this innovative and minimally invasive approach to treat a wide range of conditions and areas of pain, including:

  • Joint arthritis
  • Hip, knee and shoulder pain
  • Chronic tendonitis/tendinosis in the elbow, hip, or knee, foot and ankle
  • Acute ligament and muscle injuries in athletes
  • Common sports injuries
  • Muscle tears
  • Neck and back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Fractures

Injections of platelet-rich plasma may be used to enhance the healing process after orthopedic surgery. Patients may receive injections during the post-surgical rehabilitation stage, or in the operating room during surgery to naturally regulate inflammation and potentially accelerate recovery.

Benefits of Treatment with Platelet-Rich Plasma

While many non-surgical, traditional treatment options focus on relieving pain, platelet-rich plasma injections aim to relieve pain and inflammation while simultaneously addressing the underlying cause of the condition. This quick, outpatient procedure typically takes less than an hour to perform with minimal discomfort to the patient. Based on our clinical experience and publications, The Orthohealing Method is a pioneering organization at the forefront of regenerative medicine. We offer physicians a creative, dynamic, and easily accessible blueprint with our proprietary protocols including PRP therapy.

Biologics in Clinical Setting: Standardization and Collaboration

Dr. Steven Sampson & Dr. Hunter Vincent just published a textbook chapter titled Biologics in Clinical Setting: Standardization and Collaboration. The article describes the importance of education, training and working together to advance the field. More and more textbooks are emerging that serve as a good educational tool for interested physicians to responsibly adapt new cellular technology.
