What do you know about PRP (Patelet-Rich Plasma) and Stem Cell Therapy?

With all the recent marketing campaigns promising a quick fix for orthopedic conditions, we have to ask: Do they really work?

In order to provide our patients with the best path to healing their orthopedic diagnosis, Austin Sports Medicine prides themselves in keeping up-to-date on the latest technology, treatments, and techniques that the medical science industry has to offer.

Our philosophy when evaluating a new treatment like PRP is to first see what scientific evidence is available to support it.

Research in orthopedic applications of biologic treatments like PRP is ongoing, and clinical effectiveness and outcomes are still uncertain but looking positive.

In a recent study published in The American Journal of Sports Medicine, it concluded that PRP/ACP is “safe and provides quantifiable benefits for pain relief and functional improvement with regard to knee osteoarthritis.”

If you think PRP or Stem-Cell Therapy may be right for you, the physicians at Austin Sports Medicine are ready to discuss your treatment options and get back to what you love.
