The injection of platelet rich plasma (PRP) into the affected area stimulates the body’s own regenerative capacity
Physiatrist, Ashton Stanton, MD
has introduced the exciting, cutting edge use of regenerative techniques to treat acute and chronic injuries and degeneration of the musculoskeletal system, such as that of spinal discs.
“The injection of platelet rich plasma (PRP) into the affected area stimulates the body’s own regenerative capacity,” said Dr. Stanton. “The PRP has many different growth factors, and also attracts the body’s stem cells to the site, stimulating the healing and regrowth process. This is a way to truly change the course of disease.”
Dr. Stanton is currently using the injection of PRP for injuries such as muscle or tendon tears, chronic tendonitis and mild to moderate osteoarthritis and is working toward using PRP for lumbar disc degeneration. He contributed to a recently published study that was conducted at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York on this new treatment, which was found to decrease pain and increase function with participating patients.
