Dr. Michael Schreiber uses PRP and Prolotherapy techniques to regenerate various types of tissue in many areas of the body. These techniques prove to be quite effective in practical pain management as well as for anti-aging treatments.
PRP is in fact – Platelet Rich Plasma, which comes from your own body to regenerate and heal your connective tissue, being it on your face, in your joints, or elsewhere in your body. PRP comes from your blood which is refined by separating and removing the red blood cells from the rest of your plasma, which is then injected or needled into the areas of concern to stimulate your body’s own natural healing and regenerative mechanism.
Prolotherapy is a nonsurgical injection treatment, to stimulate your body’s own healing mechanism. Short for “proliferation therapy,” Prolotherapy is also known as nonsurgical ligament and tendon reconstruction, or regenerative injection therapy. Besides PRP, other products that help the body heal itself include stem cells, or a variety of glucose/lidocaine concoctions depending on the healing that is desired. Prolotherapy works by stimulating the body’s own natural healing mechanisms to repair aged connective tissue, injured musculoskeletal tissue, or painful joint areas.
