Are you considering elective surgery for a musculoskeletal injury or chronic pain? NJ Spine and Wellness is one of the few facilities of its kind in New Jersey that offers platelet and stem cell procedures as a non-invasive alternative to surgery. This new regenerative therapy technology allows patients to avoid surgery and use their own body’s blood to encourage healing.
To begin PRP therapy, a small sample of your own blood is taken and is then placed in a centrifuge and spun at high speeds. This process separates the platelets and growth factors from other components. The concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP), is injected into and around the injury site using ultrasound guidance. When injected at the site of the injury in the body, platelets release healing proteins called growth factors and attract cells that contribute to regrowth – also known as stem cells. This action jump starts and significantly strengthens the body’s natural healing signal.
What to Expect from the Procedure
You will initially be seen in our Old Bridge, Freehold, or Matawan office for a consultation with one of our physicians to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. The initial regenerative therapy visit includes reviewing the medical, athletic and occupational history related to your injury. The injured area will also be examined and possibly imaged with diagnostic ultrasound.
We suggest that you bring any prior scans (ultrasound, x-ray, MRI, CT) and reports relating to your condition that you have had in the past. During your consultation, we will also review these while assessing your condition. After an initial consultation, if we feel that you would benefit from regenerative therapies we will schedule a follow up for you to come back for PRP treatment.
If you feel symptoms of swelling, fevers, chills, weakness, numbness, tingling or prolonged redness contact us immediately. Here is a treatment timeline:
