Here at Primary Pain Consultant, we are proud to offer non-surgical regenerative medicine to our patients. Regenerative medicine includes therapies such as stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP). When a foot or ankle injury is keeping you on the sidelines, these non-surgical treatments can help your body help itself, and get you back to enjoying your regular activities quickly.
Regenerative medicine works by replacing or regenerating human cells and tissues to restore them to normal functionality.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP injections are created using stem cells from your own blood. Our team will draw your blood and spin it in a centrifuge to concentrate the stem cells. Once concentrated, it will be injected into the injured area. This boost of stem cells from your own body ensures you can heal faster than ever before.
Where does platelet-rich plasma (PRP) come from?
To harvest PRP, a small sample of your blood is drawn into a specialized collecting system. This blood is centrifuged at high speeds to isolate the growth factors and platelets. Because your own blood is used, there is no risk of a transmissible infection and a low risk of an allergic reaction.
What should I expect from PRP treatment?
PRP is a safe, non-surgical procedure that stimulates healing and treats acute and chronic pain. Although recovery times can vary, patients generally begin to see improvement in pain and mobility within 4 to 6 weeks. Improvement will continue for up to 12 months. The cost of a PRP treatment varies based on your specific treatment needs.
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells have been clinically and scientifically proven to effectively treat chronic and acute pain.
Stem cells are the body’s master cells. They are undifferentiated cells that have the ability to transform into a variety of different cells, replace dying cells, and regenerate damaged tissue. Stem cells are derived from your own body’s bone marrow or fat deposit (adipose).
Why Choose Regenerative Therapy?
Reduce the Necessity for Major Surgery
Greatly reduce the need for surgery by treating injured tissues before the damage progresses any further. Imagine alleviating your knee pain without having to get a knee replacement. The goal of regenerative therapy is to heal injured tissue and not just mask the pain.
Quicker Healing Process
Regenerative therapy has helped many professionals and athletes heal rapidly from an injury and back to full activity. Regenerative therapy procedures are ideal for individuals who face ailments such as back pain, knee arthritis, tendonitis, ACL injuries, arthritis of the knee, hip or shoulder, rotator cuff tears, tennis elbow, hip bursitis, patellar tendon injury, plantar fasciitis, and Achilles tendon injuries.
The cost of regenerative therapy procedures depends on your specific treatment. For more information, call 908-864-7725 to receive pricing information for your specific regenerative therapy plan.
Although recovery times vary, most patients can expect to see improvement in their pain and mobility within 4 to 6 weeks after treatment. Patients will continue to see improvement in pain and mobility for up to 12 months. Regenerative therapy patients experience rapid recovery and are back to their daily activities very quickly.
No surgery, no medication, and no hospital stays are just a few of the reasons why thousands have chosen regenerative therapies over traditional methods. Most procedures are performed in less than an hour with very little post-recovery. Many patients are able to return to work the next day. Because most regenerative procedures use your own body’s platelets and cells for healing, it’s safe and natural!
