Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Q & A

What is platelet-rich plasma therapy?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a regenerative medicine treatment that uses your body’s platelets to heal injuries.

Platelets are found in the blood and play a key role in its ability to clot. They also contain proteins that help heal ligaments, muscles, and tendons.

Concentrating platelets into plasma increases their healing factors by five to ten times. When injected into the site of your pain, they encourage healing in the area.

How does regenerative medicine work?

Regenerative medicine is a medical field that focuses on finding and repairing the source of your pain, not just masking symptoms. These therapies restore the function and structure of damaged organs and tissues in your body by using the body’s naturally occurring healing agents.

Besides platelet-rich plasma therapy, other regenerative therapies offered by Nassim Medical include stem cell, adipose, and amniotic fluid injections.

Stem Cell Injections

Stem cells are the building blocks of your body. In stem cell therapy, Dr. Ariel and Dr. Roland Nassim use your healthy stem cells to repair diseased, dysfunctional, or injured stem cells by injecting them directly into the site of the damage.

Adipose Injections

There are several types of stem cells in the body, including adipose stem cells. Small numbers of these cells are present in adult tissues like bone marrow and fat. Adipose injections can be beneficial in skeletal tissue repair, soft tissue regeneration, and more.

Amniotic Fluid Injections

Amniotic fluid stem cells are found in the liquid that protects and nourishes an embryo during pregnancy. These cells can repair tissue defects in many sites of your body, including your bones, cartilage, nervous system, and organs.

How does regenerative therapy treat chronic pain?

Degeneration or damage to your body often causes chronic pain. Regenerative medicine therapies prompt your body to use its healthy cells to repair the damaged tissue that’s causing your pain.

During regenerative therapy treatment, Dr. Ariel and Dr. Roland Nassim harvest healthy stem cell tissue from your body that matches the cellular assignment of the damaged tissue causing your pain. Then they inject the harvested healthy tissue into your pain site.

Your damaged cells begin regenerating when they recognize the new healthy cells that have entered your system. This cell regeneration stimulates healing, which reduces pain.
