platelet rich plasma and stem cell therapies
What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is a fast-emerging branch of veterinary medicine in which the body’s own cells are used to heal and ultimately regenerate damaged tissues in acute and chronic conditions. This area of medicine includes platelet rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell therapies.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy may be recommended for dogs with certain medical conditions, particularly those affecting the musculoskeletal system. Here are some reasons why you might consider PRP therapy for your pet:
*Osteoarthritis: PRP therapy can be used to treat osteoarthritis, which is a degenerative joint disease that causes pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility. The growth factors in PRP can help to reduce inflammation and promote tissue healing, potentially reducing pain and improving joint function.
*Soft tissue injuries: PRP therapy can be used to treat soft tissue injuries, such as tendon or ligament strains and tears. The growth factors in PRP can help to promote tissue healing and repair, potentially reducing pain and improving mobility.
*Bone fractures: PRP therapy may also be used to aid in the healing of bone fractures in dogs, by promoting the growth of new bone tissue.
PRP therapy is a minimally invasive treatment option that may help to reduce pain, improve mobility, and promote healing in certain medical conditions.
