PRP treatment is taking a sample of the patient’s blood through a standard blood draw, and spinning the sample in a high-speed centrifuge, which separates the platelets from the red and white blood cells. The platelets inside the plasma are what make PRP, and are used to inject into injured or damaged tissues.
These harvested platelets are an incredible healing source; they can stimulate the reproduction of new, healthy cells, and promote the growth of tissue regeneration. These factors can allow patients a speedy recovery time, with no risk.
For those who are suffering from hip pain, PRP, (Platelet Rich Plasma), treatment for hip pain could be the answer to their problems. This is a non-surgical procedure that can relieve hip pain from the injection of the patient’s own blood platelets, using the body’s own healing power. Because the platelets are concentrated, they promote the healing of damaged ligaments, cartilage, and tendons through your body’s own natural makeup. This allows the percentage of risk for infections to drop down to virtually zero risk when using the patient’s own plasma.
Many patients find relief from pain and stiffness caused by knee injuries or osteoarthritis with PRP treatments. There have been many research studies demonstrating significant improvement in knee pain following PRP injections and numerous ongoing studies continuing to evaluate the benefits.
– Less pain from osteoarthritis or past injuries
– Reduced knee stiffness
– Reduced dependency on pain medications
– Improved knee mobility and range of motion
Many patients who have undergone PRP treatments for osteoarthritis have found this minimally invasive procedure to be an excellent alternative to total knee replacement, arthroscopic surgery, or meniscus surgery. The less invasive treatment is, the easier and more successful your recovery will be.
PRP is a natural treatment for low back injuries and conditions that cause low back pain. Depending on the severity and type of problem, low back pain can be treated with growth factors from Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections.

Based on thousands of stem cell and growth factor procedures performed by Dr. Altizer since January of 2016, over 94% of patients have subjectively, objectively, and through activities of daily living reported the procedure was successful. The success of the procedure was determined by the patient achieving at least a 50% or more overall improvement with lasting results.
When asked after 1 year what their overall improvement was, patients have subjectively, objectively, and through activities of daily living reported an average overall improvement of between 83-84%.
