PRP treatments use injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections use each individual patient’s own healing system to improve musculoskeletal problems. The platelets, one type of blood cells, contain growth factors that can trigger cell proliferation, speed healing and stimulate tissue regeneration in the treated area.
PRP treatment has been used to support wound healing in trauma and joint injury. The technique can also address male pattern baldness, stimulate the growth of hair transplants and enhance other cosmetic procedures.
Because the treatments use a patient’s own tissues, PRP injections have no risk of transmissible infection and can be administered alone or used in conjunction with other procedures.
PRP for Chronic Pain
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments are revolutionary new treatments that relieve pain by promoting long lasting healing of musculoskeletal conditions using the healing power of your own body. This rapidly emerging technique is showing exciting success with osteoarthritis of the knee, shoulder, hip and spine, rotator cuff tears, chronic plantar fascitis, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries, pelvic pain and instability, back and neck injuries, tennis elbow, ankle sprains, tendonitis, and ligament sprains.
Packed with growth and healing factors, platelets initiate repair and attract the critical assistance of stem cells. PRP treatments’ natural healing process intensifies the body’s efforts by delivering a higher concentration of platelets.
Unlike a typical injection for pain relief, PRP injections do not immediately remove pain. Because the goal of PRP treatment is to heal you from within, the results are usually long term, often permanent. Initial improvement may be seen within a few weeks, gradually increasing as the healing progresses. Research studies and clinical practice have shown PRP treatment to be very effective at relieving pain and returning patients to their normal lives. Both ultrasound and MRI images have shown definitive tissue repair after PRP therapy, confirming the healing process. The need for surgery can also be greatly reduced by treating injured tissues before the damage progresses and the condition is irreversible.

Male Sexual Optimization
Sexual health and function are important components of overall High Performance Living. Most men may feel that as they age issues of erectile dysfunction and decreased virility are inevitable, but there are solutions to enhance sexual performance. Here at RevIVa Wellness we oﬀer a comprehensive male sexual optimization protocol that includes external non-invasive treatments and shots of Platelet Rich Plasma [PRP] which may also include stem cells.
Many studies have shown that PRP is an effective modality to treat erectile dysfunction and decreased male virility. That’s because PRP has the ability to naturally repair and regenerate damaged tissue. PRP is obtained by spinning the patients own blood in a centrifuge which separates the PRP from the other blood products. This PRP that is rich in growth factors is then injected into the corpus cavernosum of the penis.
- These growth factors promote tissue regeneration and blood vessel growth which in turn improves erectile function.
- Most men treated with PRP for ED can see improved erections for 18 months or more.
