PRP Prolotherapy Q & A

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) comes from your blood and contains particular growth factors that trigger healing and regeneration in your body. By injecting high concentrations of PRP into an area of concern, Dr. Mark can help you regrow your hair, find relief from chronic pain, reduce inflammation, or improve your mobility.

Using PRP, Dr. Mark can treat a variety of soft tissue injuries, like torn ligaments or muscles. He also creates innovative treatment plans at All Functional Health using PRP for:

 

  • Facelifts
  • Infertility
  • Hair growth
  • Vaginal revitalization

 

Dr. Mark can determine if you’re a candidate for therapy using PRP after a review of your medical history and an assessment of your existing condition or symptoms.

In addition to PRP therapy, Dr. Mark offers injections of exosomes, which he harvests from human skin cells. This regenerative treatment may be more useful for rejuvenating sun-damaged skin than PRP. 

How does PRP therapy work?

 PRP therapy is an in-office, two-step minimally invasive process. To access the needed PRP for your treatment, Dr. Mark draws a sample of your blood. He separates PRP from other blood materials in a centrifuge, which quickly spins the blood to isolate PRP. Once prepared, Dr. Mark injects the PRP into specific areas of your body based on your treatment plan.

 When using PRP for injuries, injections stimulate your body’s natural healing processes and the growth factors aid in repairing damaged areas of tissue. Over time, new cells replace damaged ones, improving your mobility, and easing pain.

If you are undergoing PRP therapy to revitalize your vaginal health, injections stimulate new, healthy collagen that plumps vaginal tissue to reduce chronic dryness, support your bladder, and improve your sexual satisfaction.

Injections of PRP can also be beneficial for treating infertility in men and women. PRP can rejuvenate your ovarian health by stimulating new tissue growth that supports a healthy pregnancy. For men, PRP therapy can increase sperm production in the testicles to improve the chances of conception.

Dr. Mark also offers PRP therapy as a strategy for hair restoration. PRP for hair loss is one of the most viable options for achieving a fuller head of hair naturally.

How does PRP promote hair growth? 

Injections of PRP into your scalp can revive inactive hair follicles and trigger new, healthy hair growth. PRP for hair loss has a track record of proven results in patients who wish to recover thicker and fuller hair.

Dr. Mark also offers additional treatments for thinning or lost hair, including red light therapy. This treatment uses low-level laser lights to target hair follicles and stimulate new hair growth. To support your results, Dr. Mark may recommend Nutrasome hair thickening shampoos and serums.

What is sports medicine?

Sports medicine provides appropriate treatment plans to individuals who sustain an injury as a result of physical activity. Common reasons to visit a specialist for sports medicine include:

  • Musculoskeletal injury
  • Tennis elbow
  • Cartilage injury
  • Tendinitis 
  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Concussion

Different sports medicine specialists offer various distinct treatments. The choice of provider and treatment plan is dependant on the specific needs of the individual patient. At All Functional Health, Dr. Mark utilizes all-natural yet effective methods of healing for sports injuries.

What can I expect in a sports medicine consultation?

When you visit All Functional Health with a sports-related injury, Dr. Mark ensures that you experience an office environment that makes you feel valued and comfortable. 

Dr. Mark always aims to identify and focus on the root cause of your pain and any contributing factors, such as:

  • Diet
  • Lifestyle
  • Traumatic accidents

 

At All Functional Health, your sports-related injury receives a thorough evaluation. This evaluation helps Dr. Mark to determine your specific individual needs moving forward. 

What treatments does sports medicine use?

After your initial consultation, Dr. Mark provides you with the appropriate treatment plan that best suits your sports-related injury. 

Dr. Mark is often able to provide natural alternatives to prescription medications and invasive treatments that are common for sports injuries. Fortunately, these alternative treatments do not have the same serious, long-term side-effects associated with traditional treatments such as strong anti-inflammatories and opioids.

These treatments may include modifications to your diet, an alternative exercise routine, or other suggested lifestyle changes. Dr. Mark also specializes in a specific sports medicine therapy known as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections.  

How can PRP treat a sports injury?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is used to treat a range of different conditions, including sports-related injuries. Common sports-related injuries that PRP benefits are:

  • Tennis elbow
  • Tendinitis
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Achilles tendon ruptures 

During PRP, Dr. Mark injects a concentration of your blood platelets to speed-up the healing process of injured muscles, ligaments, and joints.

These injections supply growth factors that increase the number of reparative cells an individual’s body is capable of producing. Dr. Mark uses ultrasound imaging to guide the PRP injection and obtain optimal results. 

PRP injections may be combined with Biocellular Therapy to treat more severe conditions. This combined approach accelerates tissue regeneration in advanced degeneration.
