Passion for Care with the Power to Heal
Neuropathy most commonly affects the feet. It can cause a tingling sensation, burning pain, and eventually progress to numbness.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Revitalize Plasma therapy is a safe and effective treatment for peripheral neuropathy in feet. The PRP process involves drawing the blood from the patients' arm, running it through a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets, and injecting the activated platelets into the affected injured area to accelerate the healing process. This process releases growth factors that stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells your body produces. Platelet-rich plasma has been found to significantly enhance the healing process and play a crucial role in the body's natural ability to heal itself and regenerate. In addition, the side effects of PRP injections are limited because, since the injections are created from your own blood, your own body will not reject or react negatively to them. Revitalize Plasma therapy can reduce the need for surgery, steroid injections, or anti-inflammatories or stronger medications like opioids.
The procedure is performed in office on an outpatient basis. Research has shown an improvement in symptoms within 3 months of injection.
