Why PRP Has Become a Popular Option for Treating Injuries

Most of us can power through a little muscle, joint, or nerve pain. But when it persists, your quality of life truly suffers. Gone is the joy you get from playing your favorite sports, puttering in the garden, or simply performing everyday tasks like cooking and cleaning. 

We address your pain innovatively at Regenerative Health & Wellness Medical Center. Our team, including Dr. Jacob Holdren and Dr. Steven Foley, offers a broad menu of comprehensive services to Colorado Springs, southeast Colorado, and southwest Kansas communities. Our treatments include revolutionary regenerative medicine treatments that harness your body’s healing powers to kick-start its pain relief capabilities. One of the most powerful is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. 

What is regenerative medicine?

This noninvasive therapy works in concert with your body differently than traditional treatments like pain medication, the RICE method (rest, ice, compression, and elevation), and others. Regenerative treatments prompt your body to repair damaged tissue due to traumatic injury or chronic conditions like arthritis.

What problems does PRP address, and how does it work? 

PRP is an injectable treatment that addresses several conditions, from arthritis and tendon injuries to nerve damage and injured muscles. 

We can also treat problems related to skin healing and scar tissue with PRP. Because of this, PRP has made a significant impact in the world of anti-aging treatments. 

PRP is also an effective treatment for sexual dysfunction; we specialize in these treatments.

When you come to the Regenerative Health & Wellness Medical Center for PRP treatment, we start by answering all your questions about the treatment, your unique goals, and how to care for yourself afterward. 

Before your PRP treatment, we take a small blood sample from you and spin it in a centrifuge to separate your plasma from your red and white blood cells and platelets. We extract the platelets and plasma, a concentrated serum containing more growth factors and healing proteins than regular blood. 

We then inject the platelet-rich plasma into the treatment area so it can begin:

Dr. Foley and Dr. Holdren adopted this exciting treatment approach because of its many advantages: nonsurgical, comfortable, effective, and versatile. We can treat many conditions with PRP therapy, and there’s no post-treatment downtime; you’re free to return to your duties and the activities you enjoy right away.
