Your Alternative To Surgery 

 
 

When you're in pain, life comes to a standstill. Even the simplest tasks can feel nearly impossible. At UPRI, we want to get you past the pain and help get you moving again.

We're on the frontier of Regenerative Medicine with a new and experimental form of nonsurgical treatment known as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy.

PRP stimulates the body's natural healing forces, enabling most patients to avoid invasive procedures such as surgery and providing you with an alternative to aggressive long-term medication such as anti-inflammatories, steroid injections, and epidurals. 

Medical research and intensive studies are leading the way to the tremendous benefits offered by PRP for joint pain, soft tissue injures, low back disc degeneration, and arthritis. 

Enhance your body's ability to naturally heal itself with Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy. 


What is PRP

​Platelet Rich Plasma is a concentration of platelets, which can jump start healing. Platelets contain packets of natural growth hormones and proteins that tell your tissues to increase rebuilding to enhance your recovery and help stop the pain. 

How Can PRP Therapy  Help

When tissue injury occurs, platelets collect at the site and begin to repair it. By concentrating these platelets and administering them straight into the injury site, we can deliver a powerful mixture of growth factors and stem cells exactly where you need it, dramatically enhancing you body's natural healing process. This treatment may lead to a more rapid, more efficient, and more thorough restoration of the tissue to a healthy state. 

The PRP injection is very safe. At most, you may experience very mild pain, stiffness, or swelling. While any medical procedure carries a small risk of infection, since you're using your own blood this risk is minimal. 


What is PRP therapy?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a safe, effective and all natural way to heal damaged joints and soft tissue in order to alleviate chronic pain. PRP consists of a small sample of your own blood which is spun in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets and then injected into the injured area. 

PRP has been used for over 20 years in numerous surgical fields to enhance bone grafting, accelerate wound healing and reduce the risk of infection after surgery. Medical research and intensive studies are leading the way to the tremendous benefits offered by PRP for joint pain, soft tissue injuries, low back disc degeneration, and arthritis, with the goal of enhancing the body's ability to naturally heal itself.
