Success Stories: Bob Eaton
Bob Eaton is a retired 73-year-old golf enthusiast. Bob was experiencing knee joint pain in both legs which was inhibiting his ability to golf. Thanks to full platelet rich plasma injections and MSC cellular therapy, Bob has experienced a remarkable recovery. His knees don’t bother him anymore.
Although he is still undergoing the healing process, he says he is at least 90 percent better. Prior to receiving treatments at our clinic, Bob’s pain was very intense and now he experiences no pain at all!
Pain Relief Through Platelet Rich Plasma and Mesenchymal Cells
If you’re suffering from injuries, illness, or pain like Bob’s, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an all-natural, medication-free, non-surgical solution that helps heal your body. Platelet-rich plasma injections help your body recover by introducing a higher amount of healing factors into the target area.
After taking a sample of your blood, our doctors create the platelet-rich plasma injection. The small sample is spun to isolate a high volume of platelets, and then mix it into the plasma. Once it is created, the serum is injected into the site of your injury or damaged tissue to fast-track healing.
PRP injections contain a solution rich with platelets, proteins, growth factors, and other healing agents. When these factors are present at the injury site, they get to work healing tissues and influencing other regenerative cells to help.
PRP treatment is a safe alternative to surgery. Your body will not reject a PRP injection since it uses your own blood to help renew damaged tissue. Platelet-rich plasma treatment is effective for many different conditions such as arthritis, torn ligaments, muscular tears, torn or partially torn labrum, as well as elbow, hip, and other joint pains. PRP is also effective in treating knee and ankle injuries, shoulder pain, such as a torn rotator cuff, sciatica and back pain.
Regenerative cell treatment is a safer alternative to invasive surgery, and the procedure used is similar for all types of conditions. Injections using regenerative cellular tissue are relatively quick and require no hospital stay or prolonged recovery. We perform the treatments right here in our clinic, and you can return to your normal routine afterward.
Regenerative cell therapy for pain is perfect for the following common conditions such as knee tendon and ligament injuries, degraded cartilage and bone spurs, muscular tears, damaged labrum, bone issues, plantar fasciitis, neuropathy, shoulder pain and torn rotator cuff.
Growth factors and Wharton’s Jelly derived mesenchymal stem cells may also be introduced at the site of your pain, and, at this time, they will split and separate. Then the cells are able to turn into whatever tissue cells are required for regeneration or healing. As your body accepts the new cells, it will heal itself naturally.
Your symptoms are unique to your condition, but PRP treatments will help reduce your pain. They will also enhance your body’s ability to heal naturally and shorten the recovery process. Our goal at Tarpon Total Health Care is to get you back to a healthy lifestyle so you are able to enjoy your life, return to work, and live without pain — like Bob.
