WHAT IS NATURAL GROWTH FACTOR INJECTIONS THERAPY?
Natural Growth Factor Injections is a very popular treatment here in Scottsdale, AZ. As a trendsetting city, the field of biostimulating medicine has emerged as the leading edge in healthcare and Natural Growth Factor Injections injections are a key piece of this. Composed of key growth factors found in platelets, Natural Growth Factor Injections therapy treats soft tissue injuries such as tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints. Celebrity stars, top athletes, and weekend warriors have experienced amazing results with Natural Growth Factor Injections therapy.
Platelets are well known for their ability to stop bleeding, but they are also responsible for much more. When platelets reach an injury, they release Growth Factors. These growth factors are small proteins that direct the healing process. PDGF, VEGF, and TGF-B are a few of the very important signals that wake up tissue repair cells, increase tissue proliferation, blood vessel formation and alert the immune system to the area.
Natural Growth Factor Injections therapy contains 5-10 times as many growth factors than whole blood. It is a purified and concentrated solution of platelets that supercharges the healing process. It is especially helpful for the areas of low blood flow and degenerative spaces.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING A NATURAL GROWTH FACTOR INJECTIONS THERAPY TREATMENT?
At your treatment visit, we first draw a small amount of blood from your arm. We then spin the whole blood in a centrifuge to separate it into its constituents. The constituents represent the red blood cells, white blood cells, and the plasma. The plasma goes through a second spin to separate and concentrate the platelets and the Natural Growth Factor Injections is finished.
After using a local anesthetic, the Natural Growth Factor Injections solution is injected into the treatment area often using ultrasound guidance. The growth factors will begin to signal the healing response over the next few days. It is completely normal to experience swelling and pain at the area. Over the next few weeks to months the desired effect will be reached.
