Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Advanced biocellular therapy from a patient’s own blood that regulates inflammation, stimulates repair and promotes remodeling of damaged tissues.
What is PRP?
We begin with a simple blood draw that is processed in our in-office lab under highly specialized protocols to produce platelet-rich plasma (PRP) tailored to each patient. We then administer a PRP injection directly to the painful area to promote repair and healing, using ultrasound to visually guide the injection.
What Conditions Does It Treat?
Chronic joint pain and instability; degenerative osteoarthritis in joints; sprains, strains, and other sports injuries; meniscal tears; rotator cuff tears; calcific tendinosis; frozen shoulder; chronic tendinitis; plantar fasciitis; dry-eye syndrome; men’s health; and hair loss.
How Does It Work?
Platelets form the first line of defense in response to tissue damage. They contain α-granules rich in growth factors and cytokines that promote tissue regeneration, healing and repair. Injecting a platelet-rich solution directly to the injured tissue promotes the healing process.

Does PRP vary?
At NW Regen, we use our in-office laboratory, as it allows us more flexibility to tailor the PRP solution for the individual needs of each patient.
