BEYOND Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections

You may have heard about athletes like Tiger Woods getting platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections to help heal an injury. These shots, which are based on your own blood, are increasingly being used to treat sports injuries and to help wounds accelerate healing process after surgery. Some doctors even use it as a cosmetic procedure to target signs of aging, such as wrinkles. But does it work? What if there was something more revolutionary? Here’s what to keep in mind.


A “NO STICK, NO SPIN, NO TIME” Solution. Our revolutionary Protein Rich Support (PRS) product, which is administered by our nurse practitioner, requires no blood draw unlike traditional PRP. If you are not a fan of needles, this is a perfect solution for you. Our PRS product is ideal for applications such as joint cushioning and providing tissue structural support. It inherently contains high levels of materials such as glycosaminoglycans, hyaluronic acid, chondroitin, and glucosamine along with proteins and lipids that provide these support functions.


PRP is not a suitable choice for structural support contrary to popular belief. Where PRS contains a complex extracellular matrix with original relevant characteristics such as compressibility, flexibility, cushioning, and tensile strength. These characteristics are to encourage healthy mechanical activity of the joints and tissues. PRP has been used incorrectly as a structural support matrix, but it is in fact NOT one. PRP’s only structural characteristic is a fibrin network made of an inflammatory fibrous non-globular protein. PRP is intended to be used to mix with bone graft materials to enhance bone graft handling properties, while PRS’s intended use is to support mechanical activity of joints and soft tissue tissues as a suitable choice for structural support.


PRP must rely on the body’s own available resources to provide it’s intended benefits at the site of injury. However, as people age, their body no longer carries an abundance of natural bio-materials that are required to support normal repair. Because of this, low innate healing potential occurs which results in poor repair of the body. PRS’s structural tissue extracellular matrix is inherently dense with natural occurring bio-materials that provide joint cushioning and structural support, encouraging the body’s natural restorative abilities to work as intended.,
