an inflammatory reaction is
just one way in which

Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP therapy begins with drawing the patient’s own blood. The blood is then centrifuged and the growth factors are isolated and combined with the patient’s serum. This injection calls out the body’s own stems cells to regenerate damaged tissue at the site of injury. It is the strongest of the injection therapies for pain and regeneration.

This therapy is recognized as the cutting edge of injection therapies available today for severely degenerated joints, significant muscle tearing, and injuries that do not respond to prolotherapy or prolozone injections.

During prolotherapy injection treatment, the immune system is brought to the injury site by the prolotherapy solution.

Both during and following prolozone treatment, it is recommended that patients undergo rehabilitative treatments through a qualified chiropractor or physiotherapist to correct weaknesses that have set up following the chronic injury.
