PRP Therapy in the Tampa, FL Area for Joint Injuries, Osteoarthritis & Other Musculoskeletal Conditions.
Sports & Regenerative Medicine Centers is the area’s leading clinic for regenerative medicine and nonsurgical joint treatments. Founder and medical director, Dennis M. Lox, M.D., specializes in platelet-rich plasma therapy as a means of helping joints, muscles, and tendons in the spine, knees, shoulders, and other areas to repair themselves, possibly delaying or eliminating the need for highly invasive surgery.
The PRP injection procedure is quick, relatively painless, and can be performed right in Dr. Lox’s Tampa Bay Area Regenerative Medicine clinic. The patient’s own blood is centrifuged in order to isolate the platelets, which contain a high concentration of growth factors. The platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the degenerated or injured area. The number and frequency of injections will vary based on the individual patient’s needs, but over time this therapy may help decrease inflammation and pain while increasing range of motion and overall mobility.
At Sports and Regenerative Medicine Centers, PRP therapy is available to treat a wide range of conditions, including:
- Back and neck pain
- Facet and S/I joint dysfunction
- Knee pain
- Shoulder pain
- Rotator cuff tears
- Impingement syndrome
- Hip pain
- Elbow and/or wrist pain
- Ankle and/or foot pain
- Avascular Necrosis
In some cases, PRP therapy can be used in conjunction with stem cell therapy as a means of accelerating the healing process and achieving long-term pain relief. You may be asking yourself, what’s the difference between PRP and stem cell therapy? In short, it is the source for each treatment, but both are taken from your own body.
