PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma and How This Alternative Disease Therapy Works

 

PRP is a powerful treatment used at Reno Integrative Medical Center to speed healing of injury through stimulating the immune response with T cells from patients’ blood.

First tried in 1987, this therapy has been used to speed healing in the fields of orthopedics, sports medicine, dentistry, ENT (ear, nose, throat), neurosurgery, ophthalmology, urology, wound healing, cosmetic surgery, cardiothoracic, and maxillofacial surgery.

Most commonly today, these injections are used to treat a variety of joint, muscle and tendon injuries usually referred to as “sports injuries,” but it has possible applications to many other problems. Further use is being explored for treatment of chronic elbow, hip and knee bursitis and arthritis.

Use of this technology, in injection form, provides delivery of a highly concentrated, potent cocktail of growth factors and cells, to stimulate accelerated healing.

A friend of mine saw Dr. Bob a couple of years ago for the PRP treatment on his shoulder. He is totally convinced that it works.
I think I need the same treatment for my shoulder. How much does it cost and because I live 5 hours away, how much lead time do I need to schedule the procedure?
