Chronic Joint & Soft Tissue Injuries Heal Faster Thanks To Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
Stem cell therapy is the star of the medical show these days, and no wonder. Now that science and medicine can use them to help our bodies heal themselves in ways never before imaged, stem cell therapy has moved from being the future of medicine to the exciting present.* But did you know that there is another treatment called Platelet Rich Plasma therapy that often goes hand-in-glove with stem cell treatment? Together, they deliver a one-two punch to injuries and chronic conditions of the body’s joints and soft tissues that affect areas the like the knees or hand, wrist or shoulders.* This treatment is widely available in cutting edge medical clinics like NSI Stem Cell in Florida.
World class athletes like golfer Tiger Woods and tennis star Rafael Nadal have used the therapy for a variety of injuries like knee sprains and chronic tendon injury. Many athletes credit Platelet Rich Plasma therapy with their speedy return competition. The success of PRP therapy has seen it spread well beyond the halls of professional sports onto the streets of mainstream America through clinics like NSI Stem Cell. Where once such conditions could only be treated with powerful and often addictive medications, long hours of painful physical therapy, or even invasive surgery, Platelet Rich Plasma therapy -often paired with stem cell treatments- has revolutionized chronic injury medicine.*
Among the types of injuries and chronic conditions that are treated with PRP therapy are:*
Acute ligament and muscle injuries
Inflammation of the patellar tendon (jumper’s knee)
Pulled hamstring muscles in thighs
The Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Procedure
So what exactly is Platelet Rich Plasma therapy? And how do medical clinics like NSI Stem Cell in Florida use PRP therapy?
Plasma is the basic liquid component of our blood. Platelet rich plasma is this same liquid, but containing a high concentration of platelets, one of several solid components –like red or white blood cells-that flow through the blood’s plasma. Platelets contain loads of growth factors that are essential in the healing process of our bodies. With platelet rich plasma, this abundance of platelets is generally five to ten times richer than usually found in blood plasma. Sometimes, it’s even greater.
The first step for Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is to have blood drawn from the patient to be treated. Using a centrifuge, the platelets become highly concentrated and this increased concentration is returned to the blood. PRP therapy is administered through injection into the injured or deteriorated joint or tendon. A local anesthetic can accompany the treatment as needed.
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is a non-invasive outpatient procedure. And since PRP therapy is done using the patient’s own platelet rich plasma, there is no risk of rejection. Side effects are generally very mild and usually consist of some discomfort in the treated area. This can be relieved with rest, cold packs or simple over-the-counter medication.
What to Look for in a Stem Cell Medical Clinic
When searching for a qualified stem cell therapy center it’s important to remember that not all of them are created equal. Stem cells, when used properly, are your body’s most powerful means for healing that can repair everything from ligaments, tendons, and cartilage to organs including your liver, pancreas and lungs and even neurological tissue like your brain, nerves and spinal cord.
Unfortunately, the majority of so-called “regenerative medicine clinics” in the world aren’t trained in the latest, most technologically advanced procedures and will, therefore, provide poor results if any.
The good news is the National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) has established the most advanced stem cell and platelet rich plasma procedures on the planet which has drawn patients from all over the world as well as professional athletes and celebrities because they are recognized as the best in the world at stem cell therapy.
What makes NSI Stem Cell the top stem cell clinic in the world is demonstrated in 5 key areas:
1. Highly trained and experienced, board-certified doctors and team members who have performed stem cell procedures on thousands of patients with incredible results.
2. Cutting edge procedures utilizing all that regenerative medicine has to offer for many chronic degenerative conditions.
3. Leading scientific researchers who follow the advanced guidelines to maximize the healing potential of your stem cells and to maintain compliance and ethics
4. Use of only the most potent and viable resource of living, viable stem cells and harvested on the same day. No vial that you can purchase will contain living stem cells. If there is no harvest then there are no stem cells.
5. Post-operative guidance for supporting stem-cell growth including rehabilitation, diet and supplement protocols. NSI is a full-service healthcare center focused on patient outcomes. Stem cell therapy is only one tool used to help improve patients’ lives.
Patients have raved about their experience at NSI Stem Cell Clinics testifying that it was their unique cutting-edge procedures that helped them experience a breakthrough when nothing else worked.
