Amniotic Fluid & Growth Factor Therapy
Amniotic Fluid & Growth Factor Injections
Amniotic fluid is a potent growth factor producer and also participates in tissue healing and remodeling. Our clinical experience to date is that this has been the most potent and effective injection for tissue inflammation and arthritis treatment we have seen in thirty years, with no known negative reactions. We usually combine amniotic fluid with lubricating hyaluronic acid to increase the efficacy of each compound.
What is PRP?
PRP or platelet-rich plasma is growth factor rich component of blood released from platelets. To obtain PRP we draw venous blood from the arm, spin the blood and concentrate the platelets. An additive stimulates those platelets to release growth factors. This concentrate is then injected into the tissue or joint. Often we combine the growth factors with hyaluronic acid, a natural lubricant.
