Frequently Asked Questions

How Effective is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?

Platelet Rich Plasma is extremely effective in treating a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. By utilizing your body’s own growth factors and cytokines in a concentrated amount, it can stimulate the repair and regrowth of tissues. This has been shown to improve conditions such as arthritis, tendinitis, neuropathy, and even hair regrowth.

Are There Risks to Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment?

Procedures using Platelet Rich Plasma are autologous, meaning they come from our own blood. Due to this, there is no risk of an allergic reaction or intolerance. With PRP you do not have to worry about many of the adverse reactions that can happen with other injectables such as cortisone injections. However, as with any medical procedure, there are associated risks. These can include discomfort at the site, bruising, and a very small risk of infection. All risks and benefits of the procedure will be discussed and explained prior to any treatment.

Who Is a Candidate for PRP Treatment?

If you are a person suffering from joint pain, soft tissue injuries neuropathy, scarring, or balding, you may benefit from PRP. There are certain patients that may have a blood disorder that we would not recommend PRP for. However, this will be reviewed and discussed thoroughly at your consultation.

What to Expect From Your Visit

Initial Paperwork
Prior to your consultation with the doctor, you will be asked to complete some brief paperwork that will give the doctor a synopsis of your health history. This assists the doctor in more accurately making his diagnosis.

Initial Consultation
At Delaware Integrative Healthcare, we offer a free consultation whereby the doctor will personally review your case to determine if you are a good candidate for care in our office. If he determines, based on the patient history and clinical experience, that you are a good candidate for care, he will then perform a thorough exam of the spine and extremities. If he determines that you are not a good candidate for care, he will then refer you to an appropriate specialist.
