Summer Health Series #4 Recap: PRP & Stem Cells
PRP - Platelet-Rich Plasma
A approach to treating chronic injuries.
No longer reserved for professional athletes and the ‘Hollywood elite’, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is fast becoming the treatment of choice for everyone.
WHAT IS PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is concentrated from your own blood which contains healing factors, such as white blood cells and bioactive proteins, called growth factors and stem cell markers. These cells are vital for tissue regeneration and repair. Platelets, once thought of being responsible for only clotting, have been scientifically proven to be a reservoir of these vital healing components. With advanced techniques we are able to concentrate these regenerative healing cells in a simple outpatient setting.
Less side effects when compared to steroid injections or surgery:
Natural and organic; from your own body
Speeds up and promotes healing
Minimal to no down time
Arthritis, bulging or herniated disc, carpal tunnel, chronic pain, erectile dysfunction, facial rejuvenation (vampire face lift), hips, knees, neck, loss of range of motion, sciatica, tennis elbow,and more.
Anyone could benefit from stem cell therapy. Stem cells are unspecialized cells that can differentiate (turn into other specific cells or tissue), and replicate (multiply). Stem cell therapy can influence anything from joint issues to rejuvenating skin.
Sparrow offers specialized protocols promoting regeneration of the body through the extraction and expansion of stem cells under IRB guidance. This is just one of the many components that set our clinic apart. Just a few of the conditions that have been treated are arthritis, asthma, autoimmune, cardiomyopathy, CIDP, COPD, Crohn’s disease, degenerative spine and disk disease, Lichen Sclerosis, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Myasthenia Gravis, Neuropathy, Orthopedics, Parkinson’s disease, Peyronies disease, relapsing polychondritis, Scleroderma, stroke recovery and urological conditions.
