What is a PRP Doctor?
A PRP Doctor provides regenerative orthopedics by offering non-surgical alternatives to joint and spine repair. PRP Doctors like Dr. Fields use Platelet Rich Plasma Injections that help accelerate the normal healing process. Dr.Fields is passionate about helping his clients eliminate pain for optimal long-term results, with the use of PRP Regenerative Treatments.
What Does PRP stand for?
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. Plasma is the fluid portion of blood which contains cellular components such as platelets, white blood cells, and red cells. The Harvest method that Dr. Fields uses concentrates the platelets 7-10 times of what is generally found in blood. Other systems concentrate them, but to a lesser extent.
What is PRP Treatment?
PRP treatment, as used in regenerative orthopedics, is a non-surgical healing treatment for healing soft tissue performed by a PRP Doctor. Dr. Fields makes precise injections of your own concentrated blood (PRP) into the affected areas to promote healing of musculoskeletal problems. Blood platelets contain potent growth factors necessary to begin tissue repair and regeneration at the injury site.
Is PRP Treatment Safe?
PRP treatment is an extremely safe procedure. The risks are far less than those associated with surgery for your chronic joint pain or acute joint injuries. The risks are often also less than taking Ibuprofen (Motrin) for a lifetime to temporarily alleviate chronic pain. As with any procedure, there are risks and side effects which will vary depending on the area being treated. Dr. Fields will discuss these possibilities thoroughly with patients during the pre-treatment consultation.
What Does a PRP Doctor Treat?
Weakened torn or damaged ligaments, tendons, muscle tears, menisci or labrums are the most common soft tissue structures that Dr. Fields treats. PRP has also been effective in treating arthritis, though more severe cases get better results with Dr. Fields’ Stem Cell treatments.
