Elite Regenerative has extensively tested the efficacy of PRP and determined it does not have substantial benefit over placebos in most orthopedic conditions. We also use autologous stem cell therapies which include much more powerful progenitor platelets in a rich cytokine and exosome plasma that far exceed traditional PRP.
Our team has also developed proprietary technologies and methods essential to the survival and care of these delicate cells. We are able to obtain all crucial aspects of your body’s healing potential to optimize tissue healing in the most natural way possible.

What Is Platelet-rich Plasma (Prp)?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a liquid component of one’s blood and is a high concentration of platelets and plasma. A standard blood specimen contains about six percent of platelets, whereas PRP includes 94 percent of platelets, as well as five to 10 times the concentration of growth factors. Therefore, more healing properties are found in PRP than in a standard blood specimen.
What Is Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy?
This therapy uses plasma-rich platelet injections to treat muscle injuries, ligament injuries, tendon injuries, arthritis, and fractures. PRP injections can alleviate painful symptoms, promote healing, and even delay joint replacement surgeries.
How Does Prp Treatment Work?
PRP possesses an increased concentration of growth factors. During PRP treatment, those growth factors are used to speed up the healing process. There are two ways that PRP treatment can work.
The first way PRP treatment works involves PRP carefully being injected into an injured area. When combined with a local anesthetic, PRP can be injected into the inflamed tissue. It’s possible for the pain at the injection area to increase for the first week or two after treatment. It’s common for it to be several weeks before the patient feels the benefits of treatment.
The second way PRP treatment works involves PRP being used to improve healing during or after a surgical procedure. For this kind of treatment, the PRP is prepared in a special way that permits it to be stitched into torn tissues.
The Benefits of Prp Therapy & Treatment
PRP therapy and treatment of patients have a wide range of benefits. Not only can this treatment support wound healing in trauma and joint injury. Additionally, PRP can address male pattern baldness and stimulate the growth of hair transplants. This therapy can also enhance other cosmetic procedures.
Conditions Treated With Prp Therapy
PRP therapy is capable of treating a wide range of medical problems. Certain tendon problems are proven to have improved outcomes with PRP injections. Scientific research also shows the significant effectiveness of PRP therapy for treating mild to moderate knee osteoarthritis. The effectiveness of PRP therapy often depends on the area of the body being treated, the overall health of the patient, whether the injury is acute or chronic, and the preparation of the PRP.
The Side Effects & Risks of Prp Therapy
There are minimal side effects and risks associated with PRP therapy. The few potential side effects and risks include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Pain at the Injection Site
- Adjacent Nerve Damage
- Adjacent Tissue Damage
- Formation of Scar Tissue
- Calcification at the Injection Site
