Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Spine Injections

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) spinal injections are a non-surgical treatment option to treat chronic back pain triggered by degenerative disc disease, bulging discs, spondylosis, sacroiliac joint pain and facet joint pain in the back.

Regenerative Medicine & Biologics Institute is a leader — and one of the few clinics with expertise in regenerative spinal injections. In our office, we have all the tools necessary to give you the best possible outcome. We offer fluoroscope, ultrasound, and sedation to ensure comfort and precision.

PPR spinal injections are recommended to patients suffering from chronic neck or back pain when treatments such as medications, physical therapy, chiropractic treatment and steroid injections have been unsuccessful to alleviate pain.

As PRP is obtained from your own blood, the risk of reaction is low. As with any injection, there is a small risk of injury to any structures in the area as well as a very small risk of infection. Since the patient’s own blood is used in platelet-rich plasma (PRP) spine injections, the procedure is very safe. There is no chance of an allergic reaction.

The entire process takes less than 15 minutes. Response to treatment will vary with each patient. Most patients will require 1-3 sets of PRP injections. Each set of treatments is spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

PRP spine injections are designed to increase strength and mobility. Within two weeks, patients should notice improvement, which increases as time goes on.

When should I call a doctor?

Recent advances in PRP technology have made it possible for Regenerative Medicine & Biologics Institute to promote healing, reduce inflammation and speed recovery without surgery. 

Without PRP, injured tissues are often unable to repair themselves because they lack adequate blood supply. By using PRP, RMB is able to provide the body with the enriched blood it would naturally produce to heal itself under normal circumstances. Don’t live with pain — contact us today.
