What is Stem Cell/PRP Injections?
Stem cell therapy and platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy are two distinct regenerative medicine treatments used to treat a plethora of conditions and injuries in the body. Today, both these treatments are readily used to treat a variety of orthopedic conditions and injuries.
PRP therapy involves taking plate-rich plasma from a sample of your blood (through a simple needle withdrawal) and using its growth factors and healing properties to treat a condition or injury. Your blood has many components, including platelets. The platelets are responsible for helping your body heal when you get injured. However, in many cases, people who suffer orthopedic injuries find their condition not completed healed. Alternatively, many people find recovery from surgery or an injury a very long process. PRP therapy can help in both situations.
Stem cell therapy is different from PRP therapy. Unlike platelets taken from your blood, stem cells are retrieved from your bone marrow or fat deposits. Stem cells are unspecialized cells that can replace a variety of different specialized cells in your body, where necessary. Unlike platelets, stem cells are not readily available – every person has a limited supply of them in their bone marrow or fat deposits. Therefore, extracting stem cells is more complicated than isolating platelets from a blood sample.
