PRP and stem cell injections are new technologies aiming to repair damaged tissues including,
- Repairing damaged weak spinal discs causing back and neck pain or sciatic pain by irritating the nerves.
- Repairing injured and damaged joints like knee, hip, shoulder and spinal joints.
- Osteoarthritis and arthritis pain.
- Repair of inflamed nerves.
PRP injections and stem cell injection treatments are both safe and administered to the joint under local anesthetic with no complications. The patients can then resume work the same day with no downtime and quite often with dramatic change in pain relief minutes after injecting.
Stem cell and PRP injections work by injecting growth factor which is taken from a small blood sample of the patient. The growth factor is prepared and activated in our lab and then injected above the damaged tissues. There is no foreign body added to the growth factor and so no side effects.
You can expect an immediate effect due to the strong anti-inflammatory effect of growth factor. The long term effects are progressive improvement of the damaged or injured area by the persistent preparing effect of the stem cells. Usually one dose is enough and sometimes in 50% of cases a second booster does may be needed 4 weeks later depending on patient outcome and response to treatment.
How can stem cells or PRP treatment help?
By using cells from your own body, stem cell and PRP treatments distinguish themselves from other treatments. These treatments are non invasive and use platelets from your own blood samples to heal you. The treatment begins with a consultation with our physicians. Along with a physical exam imaging diagnostics may be recommended. Once the case is diagnosed, and the stem cell or PRP treatment is deemed to be suitable we begin by collecting a small blood sample.
The platelets in the blood sample are then activated and centrifuged by our technicians. Once ready, the stem cells can be injected into the target area requiring the healing. The healing begins almost instantaneously and you can feel the pain relief begin over the area. Over the coming days and weeks it will continue to get better. Your physician may advise a course of 2-6 stem cell treatments depending on factors such as the area of treatment and the extent of damage.
