Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Blood platelets are fragmented pieces of a blood cell. They play an integral part of our healing processes, and have been used for decades in all areas of medicine and supported by literally thousands of studies, many of which are peer reviewed clinical journals. These platelets also contain proteins that support cell growth and repair. We will draw a small portion your own blood and spin it, which will give a concentrated dose of PRP and will recruit your own cells to help the area treated become stronger and healthier. Because the platelets we use are your very own, your body welcomes them. PRP is one of the safest procedures in this regard and has the ability to enhance many other procedures in the medical office.
Prolozone is a natural regenerative therapy used for any kind of joint pain or injury. Due to the nature of ozone, it can work synergistically with the body; providing nutrition and oxygen supply to a specific area or joint. We know that the main cause of degeneration or aging is lack of nutrition and oxygen. This can be caused due to deficit, or it can be caused by poor circulation since red blood cells are responsible for transporting nutrition and oxygen to a given tissue. As with any living organism, if necessities of life are not available, they degenerate and even die. Can we stop the aging process, no; but can we slow it down and make it more enjoyable, absolutely!
Prolozone therapy is a natural, non-surgical, and minimally invasive treatment made of two parts. The first part of the procedure adds the nutrition back into the injured area (i.e., vertebrae, ligament, tendon, muscle, connective tissue, joint space, etc.). This is done by injecting a syringe of liquid vitamins and minerals into the area. Among this solution of vitamins and minerals are homeopathics which aide in the control of inflammation and swelling allowing better circulation. Obviously this is vital to the delivery and assimilation process.
The second part of the process is the ozone. Ozone is given soon after the vitamin and homeopathic solution, infiltrating the area and spreading the solution further than an injection alone can carry it. Ozone increases circulation, allows the vitamin solution to spread further and deeper into joint spaces, modulates inflammatory responses and expedites healing.
Unlike steroid injections, which only lower inflammation for a short time, prolozone has been shown to assist in new tissue development, making it not only a pain management option but also an alternative to surgery, saving you time and money.
