Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections use your own blood to promote natural healing. Your blood platelets are isolated into a serum that helps jumpstart natural stem cell growth, so you can heal faster. Professional athletes use PRP injections to help heal injured muscles, ligaments, tendons and bones. Beyond sports injuries, PRP is used to treat fractures, osteoarthritis, surgical wounds and other conditions.
Iovera is a non-opioid nerve block treatment performed a week to two weeks before surgical procedures. Iovera therapy uses cold therapy to temporarily disrupt the nerves from sending pain signals. Using a handheld device and an ultrasound to guide them, doctors target the nerves with small needles and liquid nitrous oxide. A portion of the nerve has degenerated, and the pain signal can’t make its way through until the nerve regenerates several weeks later. This helps patients tolerate physical therapy quicker, hit their range of motion goals quicker, and requires less narcotic pain medication following surgery.
