Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy Newport Beach
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections allow the body to heal naturally. Recently, when researching the body’s reaction to its own blood, the ability to incite the body to heal itself was discovered. Many professional athletes use this method of natural healing to help repair sprained knees, chronic tendon injuries, shoulder injuries, and elbow issues. Most of these injuries are typically treated with medication, physical therapy, or even surgery in some severe cases. However, PRP has been credited for getting athletes back in action quickly. Essentially, we are tapping into the individual’s healing system to promote self-healing. Platelet-Rich Plasma is not an anti-inflammatory or a narcotic. It is your blood, and we are using your system to heal itself.
What Conditions Can This Therapy Help
At Revive Regenerative Medical Group in Newport Beach, we have used this therapy on patients who have chronic tendonitis, or an abnormality in the tendons like tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow, an injured rotator cuff, and even tears. We can help patients improve body function and have less pain. In fact, a good percentage of our patients have seen a tendon that has healed from a tear. Patients with arthritis also seem to find significant results, as this condition has a significant response to this therapy, particularly if therapy begins early. Upon future follow up visits patients seem to be doing much better. You will certainly need some relative rest for the first two weeks.
Platelet activation plays a vital role in the process of wound and soft tissue healing. The use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a portion of the patient’s own blood with a platelet concentration above baseline, can be applied to promote healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints to various musculoskeletal problems.
How PRP Therapy Works
The process for Platelet-Rich Plasma is relatively simple. The patient attends their appointment; we identify the body’s problem, draw blood, spin it down, and concentrate the platelets so they are concentrated much greater than they would typically be in the system. Next, we introduce their own platelets into the injured area. Our doctors utilize ultrasound to scan the affected area to identify the injury and any irregularities and ensure proper injection placement. Then, our doctors will inject the freshly concentrated platelets directly into the affected area. By injecting these platelets into the injured area, it is releasing the body’s own growth factors. Those growth factors are what the body uses to heal tissue. Essentially, it works to reboot the healing computer in the body. It then becomes a beautiful alternative for various ailments that we think to be appropriate, and nobody rejects their own blood.

What Our Patients Are Saying
Read about our patients experiences and find out why we are the top-rated pain management and rehab clinic in the Newport Beach area.
I had a meniscus tear in my left knee, I went to my Kaiser Ortho, he recommended that I get surgery to repair my tear. He wasn’t too sure that I would be able return to my normal activity even after the surgery. I waited for about a year hoping it would get better on its own, but it didn’t! After discussing and researching clinics that do knee treatments, I decided to get treatment. What really separated them from other places I went to is the variety of therapies they had available, and they have a post rehab program that was never discussed or offered at other places. I happy I was able to take advantage those services. The staff is very knowledgeable. The doctors told me it would take a few months before I could begin to resume my exercise routine. Being in law enforcement for over 20 years, and a fitness trainer it was important that I be able to run, hike, and work out. I am happy to say that I began running on the sand in my 4th month. The most impressive part is when I pivot it doesn’t hurt! No more inflammation. The procedure only took about 20 min and it didn’t hurt at all!!! I recommend anyone who has any joint or knee problems to go see this team of Doctors! They have a great Medical team. They really care and have the best rates.
My knee feels great after my treatment. I definitely recommend it, if the pain is persistent. Dr Kamer explained everything and was great.
Revive is amazing, I wouldn't go anywhere else to have treatment done!!
