PRP & Prolotherapy

About Platelet Rich Plasma Prolotherapy
The process of using PRP is a powerful form of regenerative injection therapy and is effective in over 90% of acute and chronic sports and accidental injuries. Dr. Lobe has worked extensively treating injuries to the shoulders, hips and knees, including ACL and meniscus tears, rotator cuff tears, elbows sprains, wrists sprains and arthritis, hand and thumb pain, and injuries to the ankles and feet.

PRP has gained notoriety as an accepted biologic tool in orthopedic regenerative medicine and gained notoriety due to its success in helping elite and professional athletes. Athletes include the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant, Spain’s tennis star Rafael Nadal, the 76ers’ Andrew Bynum, Pittsburgh Steelers’ Hines Ward, the Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez, Tiger Woods, and many others. As an advanced martial artist, Dr. Lobe understands the body and is highly experienced in treating sports injuries to the joints, neck and spine.

Effective for Many Areas of the Body
The significant advantage PRP has over other potential therapies in that it is autologous, which means that the cells used are harvested from the patient he is treating. Platelets contain tiny alpha granules that release powerful cell-signaling molecules, including a multitude of tissue repair and growth stimulators as well as transforming growth factor beta, known as TGF-B1 and vascular endothelial growth factor know as VEGF. What makes PRP Therapy so powerful is that as the concentration of platelets increases, the amount of growth factor increases linearly.
How PRP is most widely used:
  • To reactivate tissue repair cycles
  • To promote repair of both acute and chronic injuries
  • To reduce pain
  • To enhance functionality
  • To stimulate cartilage proliferation, repair and matrix biosynthesis.
In most cases, 3-5 treatments may be required, with treatments from 2-6 weeks apart.
