Platelet-rich plasma (abbreviated PRP) is a treatment used for a variety of common orthopedic conditions. PRP is a concentration of platelet cells taken from your blood, and these platelets have growth factors that may help in the healing process of acute and chronic injuries. Growth factors are chemicals that signal the body to initiate a healing response. By injecting PRP into an injured area, the effect is the stimulation and optimization of the body’s ability to heal the damaged tissue. For more information on PRP click here.
PRP Therapy usually requires 2-4 treatments to effectively treat injuries.
“Prolo” derives from the Greek root word proliferate, which means “to regenerate.” Prolotherapy, also known as regenerative therapy, has been used for more than 40 years as an injection technique to stimulate the body’s natural healing response. An irritative solution using dextrose is injected in multiple areas in and around the injured joint or body part to stimulate the body to respond through inflammation, which brings new blood cells, nutrients, and the body’s healing response. Prolotherapy usually requires 3-6 treatments to effectively treat injuries.
Prolozone Therapy is an injection technique similar to Prolotherapy that uses ozone, a form of high-powered oxygen, in addition to dextrose. The use of ozone enables the joint to heal much more quickly than in traditional Prolotherapy. It involves the injection of ozone gas and other nutrients into damaged and painful areas to stimulate the body’s healing response.
Ozone is also a powerful pain reliever and can quickly reduce or eliminate acute and chronic pain. Prolozone can be combined with PRP or be used as a stand-alone treatment.

Perinatal Growth Factors and Exosomes are usually effective with 1-2 treatments depending on the severity of the condition.
Exosomes are small packets of information that are produced by every cell in the body with powerful regenerative properties.
Exosomes contain proteins and growth factors that allow for efficient cell-to-cell communication. These proteins help regulate and optimize cell function, growth, and repair as well as regulating immune function. Since Exosome production and quality declines with age, (especially after age 30) treatments with perinatal mesenchymal-derived exosomes help combat and reverse many age-related disorders.
Exosomes contain mRNA which provides a blueprint for optimal cellular function and can have positive effects on epigenetics
Anti-inflammatory, immune-modulatory, stimulates growth and repair, anti-fibrotic (helps clean up scar tissue).
Contain all of the growth factors (and more…) found in Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) without the temporary inflammatory response associated with PRP. This means all the benefits without the pain and discomfort that can briefly accompany PRP treatments.

We have had great success in using Exosomes for treating arthritis, damaged tendons, and ligaments as well as low back and neck injuries/pain.
💉Anti-Aging – revitalizes aging cells, preserves and lengthens telomeres, promotes cellular repair, restores and enhances mitochondrial function, reverses scaring and plaque formation
💉Auto-Immune – helps normalize immune function to calm down overactive immune systems and repair the damage caused by antibodies. Our faciliary has succesfully used IV exosomes to help slow, stop or reverse the progression of auto-immune disorders in addition to degenerative disease such as neurological disorders (including traumatic brain injuries), heart disease, and diabetes.
💉Aesthetics – more powerful than PRP for microneedling, scar therapy, hair restoration, and healing post laser therapy.
