What is Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)?
Move more with less pain by using Prolotherapy from Aspen Integrative Medical Center in Flagstaff, Arizona. A mountain biker can get back on the bike sooner with naturopathic care.

Do more of what you love with less pain by using

Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma injections are a more recent evolution of regenerative injections. Like prolotherapy, PRP creates an inflammatory response at the specific area that is causing pain which creates a healing response in the damaged tissue.

PRP utilizes the patient’s own platelets to generate the healing response. Blood is drawn from the patient, processed in a specialized centrifuge, then drawn into a syringe to inject into the injured joint, ligament, or tendon.

Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a more powerful regenerative injection therapy and can create as much healing as two or three prolotherapy sessions.

Dr. Belt will often combine prolotherapy and PRP to create a unique treatment that is specific to the individual patient.

Throughout our lives, we will have sprains, strains, degeneration, or tearing of our ligaments, tendons, or joints. Regenerative injections will help stabilize these areas by healing damaged cartilage, ligaments, or tendons so that our patients have less pain and better function.

Invest in your health!
