How Wound Care with PRP Therapy Helps Healing
The U.S. Center for Sports Medicine states it succinctly, regarding wound care with PRP: “Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a therapy that utilizes a patient’s own blood to stimulate a healing response within a damaged tissue or joint. This form of therapy takes cutting edge technology and combines it with the body’s natural ability to heal itself. PRP is made by taking a small sample of a patient’s own blood and spinning the sample in a centrifuge.”
Advanced medical clinics like NSI Stem Cell Centers in Florida specialize in regenerative medicine treatments like wound care with PRP and an ever-growing list of effective stem cell therapies. How is platelet rich plasma turned into such powerful medicine?
The process takes blood platelets and white blood cells and creates a concentrated serum. This concentrated mix is then delivered to the injured area via injection to help speed the healing process and to reduce pain. Growth factors in the platelets help encourage the growth and production of stem cells, which are necessary for healing and tissue regeneration.* Not only is wound care with PRP therapy done, but using PRP to manage pain has become a preferred treatment for both professional athletes and every-day people.
Wound Care with PRP Therapy
Using PRP to manage pain and speed recovery from surgery or injury is the leading use of the treatment.* This is made possible by the hidden power of the platelets found in human blood. The platelets release healing proteins that are commonly referred to as growth factors. There are many growth factors that perform varying tasks. However, as a whole, they help with healing and tissue regeneration, and encourage more stem cells and platelets to gather in the area of the wound. Therefore, by tapping into this regenerative source within the body, wound care with PRP improves healing, and pain reduction is easily attained. Platelet rich plasma helps in the following ways:*
Promotes the growth of special types of cells and tissues to improve healing
Increase development of nerve cells, blood cells, and soft tissue cells
Accelerated regeneration of ligaments and tendons
Initiates the growth and production of connective tissue
Where Can PRP be Used?
PRP can be used in almost any medical specialty where soft tissue and tendons have been injured, cut, or bruised. * NSI Stem Cell Centers has helped many patients with this specialized approach to wound care with PRP. Platelet rich plasma can also be used to treat pain, and NSI has seen amazing results using PRP to manage pain after surgery or injury. Some of the key areas that use PRP treatments include:*
General Injury Care
Hands and Feet
How is PRP Administered?
The use of platelet rich plasma therapy and treatments vary from procedure to procedure. The use is also impacted by the area that is being treated. Wound care with PRP therapy can be done by injecting an injury site or at entry points such as joints.
The presence of platelets and the stem cells that develop in response give a nice kick start to the healing process. It reduces swelling, bruising, scarring, and pain during recovery. Many patients see results after the very first treatment.
One thing that sets wound care with PRP treatments apart from standard wound care and pain management is that the results last. Once healing has occurred, there usually is no need for maintenance or treatments so long as further injury does not occur down the road.* When it comes to perfecting wound care with PRP and using PRP to manage pain, NSI Stem Cell Centers are leading the way in quality and excellence.
Who Can Benefit From PRP?
Anyone, from professional athletes to people have suffered some sort of soft tissue injury, can benefit from the healing effects of PRP treatments and therapies. If you have been told that surgery is the only option to deal with your pain, or you have been warned about the severity of the side effects of a surgery, pain management and wound care with PRP treatments may offer a successful alternative to highly invasive procedures.
The medical professionals at NSI are available for consultation, and will thoroughly discuss how PRP as an option for your pain management or as a surgical alternative can help.
Common injuries that have shown great results in treating pain or wound care with PRP therapy include: tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, ankle sprains, shin splints, bursitis, knee and hip strains, rotator cuff tears, general muscle tears and damage, jumper’s knee, tendonitis, arthritis, carpel tunnel, planar fasciitis, slipped discs and vertebrae, and any ligament strain or sprain.*
Platelet rich plasma offers a safe and viable alternative treatment for those who are unable to have surgery or who want to avoid surgery whenever possible*. Other traditional treatments for pain such as cortisone injections and narcotics can provide pain relief, but they often need to be continued long-term in order for the results to be maintained.*
However, pain or wound care with PRP therapy is designed to promote long term healing of the injury, and frequently requires little to no additional treatment.* As far as wound care goes, once the healing process is complete, the need for PRP treatments is gone and patients can return to normal activities.*
Wound care with PRP offer great improvement, and we often see accelerated healing of acute injuries.* The same is true for chronic problems, although these may require a longer recovery period.*
This also goes for using PRP to manage pain. In the vast majority of cases we see at our Florida clinics, NSI patients see and feel obvious results after just one treatment, meeting or exceeding their pain relief and recovery goals.

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.
