“Reducing shoulder pain and restoring health with the first dosage”
Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is one of the most effective treatments that help in the regeneration of tendon injuries, ligament damage, and osteoarthritis. Such treatment falls within a new branch of alternate medicine treatment known as orthobiologics.
KC Wellness Center relies on modern techniques and a highly qualified and experienced team to provide PRP and stem cell-based therapies as an alternate to shoulder surgery. Safe, reliable and virtually free from side-effect, this treatment works wonders in repairing a number of shoulder and rotator cuff injuries. Here is how it works:
How does PRP Work?
The human blood contains red and white bloods cells, platelets and plasma. PRP refers to blood plasma that contains a large concentration of platelets. Platelets contain the necessary bioactive proteins and growth factors to repair and regenerate human tissue.
A tissue tear within the shoulder can occur in an acute injury or simply chronic wear and tear. Along with rotator cuff tears, labrum tears, ac joint separations, osteoarthritis of the shoulder joint is another common cause of shoulder pain. Either injury or disease can cause laxity of the supportive tissues surrounding the shoulder joint leading to instability which in turn leads to, bone spurs and loss of cartilage.
PRP and or stem cell based therapy can help repair traumatic or chronic tearing of the rotator cuff, labrum and other connective tissues in and around the shoulder joint. This non-surgical therapy can also counter subacromial impingement and osteoarthritis around the shoulder. Furthermore, stem cell and PRP therapy reduces pain and improves the recovery of damaged and injured shoulders.
A blood sample is obtained from the patient, which is then broken down into its individual components. The platelet-rich plasma content is centrifuged to concentrate the growth factors and the resulting solution is then injected in and around the shoulder joint, along with local anesthesia. When injected, the PRP solution stimulates the body to release more platelets and growth factors to repair the damaged shoulder.
Stem Cell & PRP Alternative
Shoulder replacement surgery requires precision and care, and usually several months of rehabilitation before significant improvement is observed. Even the slightest mistake or miscalculation on part of the surgeon can have devastating results for patients.
PRP and Stem cell-based treatment offers an alternative to rotator cuff surgery and similar procedures to replace torn shoulder ligaments. Stem cells with regenerative capabilities are harvested from bone marrow or fat cells, concentrated in a controlled lab environment and injected into the damaged shoulder.
Shoulder surgery is an extensive process. Typical surgeries are not only expensive, but require a long period of recovery before the pain starts to diminish and any therapeutic effects are observed. PRP and Stem Cell-based treatments offer several benefits over traditional treatment. These include:
- Restoring health within the shortest time span
- Keeping the body safe from external contaminants
- Preventing any infection from making its way within your body
- Repairing rotator cuff tears and other injuries rapidly
- Improving your overall mobility and shoulder movements
