Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

What is PRP?

PRP is a non-surgical regenerative treatment for bones and soft tissue healing.

PRP is developed by harvesting a concentrated amount of platelets and a small volume of plasma which is then injected into the damaged structures where regeneration of bone and soft tissue healing begin.

How does PRP work?

PRP recruits growth factors and cytokines to the area and stimulates your own immune system to begin healing.human-muscle-anatomy

What can I expect?

When you come to our office, your symptoms will be thoroughly evaluated to determine if PRP is the best treatment for your condition.

A small amount of blood will be drawn and prepared to harvest the concentrated platelets that will be used during your treatment.

PRP will be injected into the damaged structure where it will recruit an increased number of growth factors, creating a mild inflammatory reaction that triggers repair and regeneration of the structure. Bone, tendon, and ligament tissues are regenerated and new vessels are developed.

How Many Treatments?

The number of treatments needed for a full recovery will vary of each person, most patients require 1-3 treatments, however, as many as 6-12 treatments may be required. Treatments are typically scheduled every 4-6 weeks.

Improvement if often felt after the first treatment and there is no limit to the number of treatments you can have. Your healing time will be influenced by factors such as over-all health, diet, circulation and duration and severity of injury.

Patient Testimonials

Diabetes

“I knew that my diabetes was the author of my tired and exhausted feeling. this appointment changed my life and quality of life for the better. I began the journey of learning what I should eat to be healthy. I will always have diabetes, but it can be controlled when I get my body the food it needs to operate correctly. Due to supplementation and good healing diet my body began to turn loose of pounds and the amount of insulin needed is half of what it was and continues to go down. I do not feel tired and miserable all the time. After 16 years of diabetes, my eyes have no retinopathy, my kidneys are normal, and my limbs are still intact. I will always believe that natural treatment from a Naturopathic Physician who treated the root cause of the ailments has extended and given me a better a quality of life.” -F.D. 60 yo female

Hormone Replacement Therapy

Naturopathy is my family’s choice of “medicine”. We believe that treating the whole person is far more beneficial than treating a symptom. Since, withe help of nature, we can cure our bodies of ailments, disorders and diseases, using pharmaceuticals an chemically derived products isn’t necessary. A few years ago at the age of 34, I had to have a total hysterectomy. After extensive research the thought of synthetic HRT frightened me and, in my opinion the risks far outweighed the benefits. For six years now I have been using bioidentical HRT and I feel AMAZING. I have no symptoms of menopause and I am confident that I am protecting my body against the possible side effects that come with synthetic  HRT.” -A.S. 40 yo female.
