Prolotherapy and PRP: Types of regenerative injections

 

What if you could do an injection that would stimulate regeneration of injured tissue? Wouldn’t that be amazing? 

 

Exactly. 

 

Prolotherapy and Platelet Rich Plasma injections (PRP) are the answer to that question. 

 

These injections stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms to strengthen ligaments, repair torn muscles, heal torn fascia, strengthen tendons and stimulate growth of cartilage. Both are highly effective, safe and have no side effects other than local swelling and occasional bruising at the site of the injection. They are frequently used on professional and Olympic athletes and those with Arthritis. Dr. Turner has advanced training in utilizing ultrasound-guidance, when needed, to accomplish a safe and effective injection. 

 

Below is an in-depth presentation Dr. Turner gave on these topics:

 

 

And here is a brief overview of PRP:

 

What is the cost?

 

$375 per Prolotherapy injection and $900 per PRP 

 

But that sounds too expensive for me!“ 

 

Understood. But let’s think it through a bit more. What is the cost of the alternatives? 

 

 

  • Weeks or months of additional physical therapy (which hasn’t healed you yet), at the cost of your co-pay, deductible and co-insurance.
  • Surgery?
  • Lost work? Lost wages? Additional lost PTO? 

 

What is the value of regaining your quality of life? What is it worth to you to be able to return to the activities you enjoy and love? 

 

Example: An ACL knee surgery has a cost of $1,000-$3,000 just for the surgeon’s fee. This does not account for anesthesia, hospital stay, or the lengthy physical therapy that comes afterward. This puts the average cost of ACL surgery around $8,000, but costs of $20,000 or even $50,000 are not uncommon.
