PRP for Tampa patients is available from Florida Spine and Sports Medicine, the area’s leading clinic for regenerative medicine and nonsurgical joint treatments. Founder and Medical Director, Dr. Dennis Lox, specializes in platelet rich plasma therapy as a means of helping joints, muscles, and tendons in the spine, knees, shoulders, and other areas to repair themselves, possibly delaying or eliminating the need for highly invasive surgery.
The PRP injection procedure is quick, relatively painless, and can be performed right in Dr. Lox’s clinic. The patient’s own blood is centrifuged in order to isolate the platelets, which contain a high concentration of growth factors. The platelet rich plasma is then injected into the degenerated or injured area. The number and frequency of injections will vary based on the individual patient’s needs, but over time this therapy may help decrease inflammation and pain while increasing range of motion and overall mobility.
