Plasma injections that are high in platelet count utilize the innate healing properties already found within the patient’s own blood. It is a very simple process. To begin Plasma injections, a small sample of blood is drawn and put into a centrifuge. This centrifuge is used to concentrate the platelets in the blood and create a golden substance that is rich in growth factors, proteins, and cytokines. This substance is then injected into a numbed area of the back that needs healing. Plasma injections are effective as they accelerate the healing process and promote the regeneration of damaged tissues.
involves the use of regenerative tissue to treat chronic back pain and help initiate the body’s natural healing process. This potent, restorative tissue is taken from a substance called Wharton’s jelly that is found in the donated umbilical cord of cesarean newborn babies. The Wharton’s jelly is collected from carefully screened, consenting mother’s and causes no discomfort to them or their child. After this substance is collected, the healing properties of this substance are injected into the area of need.
This regenerative tissue contains powerful healing qualities that work to heal back pain at the source, such as:
- Growth factors
- Amino Acids
- And more
Cell-based regeneration therapy also comes with a lower risk of side effects because the tissue is healthy and too young to carry any toxins that could jeopardize the patient’s health. It is also noninvasive and comes with little to no recovery time after it is administered so the patient can quickly get back to their daily activities.
