Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Lysate Injection Treatments contain healing growth components from your own blood that increase your body’s natural ability to repair itself.

The use of PRP to repair joint, tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries is becoming well known, thanks to exposure from professional athletes. Platelet injection treatments are effective because they have a stimulating effect on the stem cells within the targeted area, making those stem cells work harder to heal damaged tissues.

Our Advanced Platelet Procedures are more pure and concentrated than those created by the automated machines used at most regenerative medicine clinics. Platelet procedures are commonly used for soft tissue injuries, mild arthritis and spine conditions.

Areas of Injury We Treat:

  • Arthritis
  • Achilles Tendon Tears
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Joint/Knee, Hip, Ankle Pain Injuries
  • Knee ACL, MCL, and Meniscus Tears
  • Leg/Arm Numbness & Weakness
  • Muscular/Ligament Strains
  • Neck, Upper Back, or Low Back Pain

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is is a blood product concentration of the growth factors and other healing cells from your own blood.  By injecting PRP at the sites of pain, weakness and breakdown, it stimulates the body’s own healing mechanism to repair and rebuild injured tissue. This repair process leads to a stronger and more supportive structure.

PRP is injected percutaneously (through the skin) into the intra-articular space and into tendon and ligament tissues.  A peppering technique with the needle is used to prepare the tissue to accept the injected PRP thus using a percutaneous tenotomy procedure.  The mechanism is by placing a high concentration of the patient’s own growth hormone and other healing cells in the PRP into tissue irritated by the tenotomy needling technique.  The tissue is stimulated to heal itself in a manner similar to post injury without stretching the ligament tendon or joint capsule.

Successful PRP outcomes are decreased pain, decreased use of pain medications, increased functional activities should be seen as the patient improves. So the driving question today is what are the positive benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections for you?  Benefits include improving the collagen content of the ligaments, capsular tissues at the cervical facets, and improving the health of the facet joints in the neck.  How is this helpful?  Collagen acts as a tissue reinforcement making the tissue tougher and able to withstand more force through the structure.  This allows higher levels of functional activity with less pain.  Cervical instability would therefore be improved by helping to stabilize the ligaments further.  While there is no cure for osteoarthritis, PRP treatment of instability should help decrease the excess motion at each vertebral segment thus decreasing the amount of irritation of the facet joints.  This slows the arthritis process and should make flares of the tissue less frequent.  Ultimately it treats the cause of the pain and is not just covering it up.  In essence, rejuvenation from the inside out.

REJUV PATIENT SUCCESS STORIES

One day I was complaining in class about some sport related injuries that would cause pain in my knee and in my shoulder. That’s when a classmate introduced me to Rejuv Medical. I was treated with Platelet Rich Plasma Injections and Prolotherapy, and had a series of neuropathic pain treatments done as well. I can do things now I thought I would have to give up like volleyball, aerobics, etc. My pain is gone and I can enjoy so much now due to the treatments I received.

At Rejuv Medical, Dr. Baumgartner and Susan Schneider quickly diagnosed, and verified through testing, my stressed and fatigued conditions. They treated me and confidently stated my normal energy levels would return and I would literally feel years younger. They were exactly correct! Looking back through years of work, I realize I suffered from the insidious nature of stress, but never had my prior bouts of stress diagnosed or treated; until my visit to Rejuv Medical.

I was in so much pain 24/7, I was on all kinds of pain medicines and over the counter meds, too.  I was forced to grab the walls for balance and to walk. I cried many nights because I couldn’t sleep from the pain that seemed to be attacking my entire body. I wish that I had come to Rejuv Medical sooner, for it may have saved me from having a right knee replaced. Recently my left knee started to hurt and it became unbearable. I thought I was going to suffer like this for the rest of my life. Dr. Joel Baumgartner has cured me, I am practically pain free! I’VE-GOT-MY-LIFE-BACK! Thank You Dr. Baumgartner and staff!
