PRP Injection Q & A

What is PRP?

PRP is a regenerative concentrate made from your own blood. PRP contains your body's natural platelets, but they're highly concentrated. The platelets release natural growth factors that stimulate tissue healing, so with PRP, your healing process is far faster and more effective.

At Ultimate U Medical, Dr. Smith uses an advanced type of PRP that's supplemented with your body's natural stem cells and a proprietary formula that stimulates healing. The PRP Stem Cell Plus formula originally comes from Germany, where researchers discovered the incredible benefits of combining stem cells and PRP in 2012. With this combination formula, your healing improves by more than 500%.

What conditions do PRP injections treat?

PRP injections can treat chronic conditions, sports injuries, repetitive use damage, and more. Some of the many conditions that respond well to PRP Stem Cell Plus include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Neuropathy
  • Sciatica
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Tendinitis
  • Ruptured tendon
  • Ligament tears
  • Damaged cartilage
  • Muscle inflammation
  • Muscle strain

If you’re dealing with acute or chronic pain, whether it’s in your neck, back, hips, knees, elbows, or somewhere else in your body, there’s a good chance that PRP Stem Cell Plus therapy can help.

How does the PRP injection process work?

Dr. Smith performs PRP Stem Cell Plus injection therapy on-site at Ultimate U Medical. Treatment begins with a small blood draw. Dr. Smith then uses a centrifuge to separate your platelets and stem cells before adding the proprietary formula that boosts the healing power of PRP even more.

Next, Dr. Smith injects a small amount of an anesthetic called lidocaine. This quickly numbs the treatment area without affecting the rest of your body. Dr. Smith injects the PRP Stem Cell Plus formula with a very slim needle. Patients say the process is quick and easy because it’s similar to any other injection.

The platelets and stem cells start working within the next two weeks, encouraging rapid healing and giving you substantial pain relief.

How many PRP injection sessions do I need?

The number of PRP treatments varies by individual. Usually, larger areas like the shoulders or back require a series of sessions, one month apart. The majority of Ultimate U Medical patients enjoy dramatic pain relief after only three sessions.

If you have a bad shoulder, back, or knees, don’t prolong the suffering. Call Ultimate U Medical or use the request appointment tool to get PRP injection therapy now.
