PRP & Stem Cell Therapy Q & A

What are platelet-rich plasma and stem cell therapy?

PRP and stem cell therapy both involve using your own blood for healing, but they are prepared in different ways. PRP and stem cell therapy are both used to decrease healing time after an injury and help with chronic pain management. These innovative therapies can also be used for sports medicine treatments.

Call Pain MD Associates to schedule a consultation with Dr. Adepitan to find out how both treatments can work best for you.

How are PRP and stem cell therapy different?

PRP and stem cell therapy use your own blood to heal your body.

PRP is performed in the office with a minimally invasive procedure. Your blood is drawn and spun through a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the rest of your blood. Dr. Adepitan then injects the PRP into the treatment area.

With stem cell therapy, Dr. Adepitan extracts the stem cells from your bone marrow. Retrieving the stem cells is more invasive than getting PRP. At Pain MD Associates, stem cells are used for treating arthritis and also to regrow cartilage in affected joint areas.

Are PRP and stem cell therapy right for me?

PRP and stem cell therapy can be used in the treatment of many injuries or conditions. Some of the conditions PRP and stem cell therapy can help treat include:

  • Arthritis
  • Spinal conditions
  • Overused muscles and tendons
  • Inflammation of muscles or joints

Bruises and sprains from sports injuries can also be treated with PRP and stem cell therapy at Pain MD Associates.

How soon will I see results from PRP and stem cell therapy?

Getting treatment with PRP or stem cell therapy will not provide instant pain relief. However; the condition you were seeking treatment for should begin healing faster than it otherwise would with PRP or stem cell therapy.

Several appointments at Pain MD Associates are often needed, but within a few weeks, you should notice a difference. The effects may not be immediate, but they are long lasting. During your consultation, Dr. Adepitan discusses with you during your consultation how many PRP or stem cell therapy appointments you’ll need for optimal results.

If chronic pain and slow healing times are plaguing you, PRP and stem cell therapy may be able to help. Call Pain MD Associates or schedule your consultation online today.
