Patricia Keller, FNP – Larimer County PRP Specialist
Larimer County PRP Specialist, Patricia Keller, FNP of Fall River Wellness specializes in the use of Platelet Rich Plasma. Platelet Rich Plasma is a revolutionary therapy that has been used for several decades in the treatment of pain, soft tissue injuries, and osteoarthritis. However, now more than ever before the benefits of this advanced therapy are being applied to several other conditions. With the power to reverse damage to the tissues and regenerate new, healthy cells and flesh, PRP therapy has changed the lives of countless men and women.
How does Platelet Rich Plasma work?
Platelet Rich Plasma is a virtually painless and non-invasive procedure that uses factors from the patients’ blood and fat tissues. A small amount of blood is taken from the patient and spun down to obtain platelets and growth factors. Some physicians may also extract stem cells from the patient’s body fat and combine it with the PRP. After obtaining the needed components, the PRP mixture is injected into the area being treated to regenerate and heal tissues. The growth factors and platelets from the blood stimulate collagen production, while stem cells take on the form and function of the cells residing in the area that they are placed in, leading to regeneration.
In most cases, patients see results the same day that they have the treatment, but over the course of the next few weeks after treatment, the PRP really works to repair, rebuild, and restore the patient’s tissues. For this reason, full results are usually often seen a few weeks after having the procedure. Many patients have been able to improve pain, injuries, and aesthetic issues with Platelet Rich Plasma therapy.
- Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy For Pain & Soft Tissue Injuries
Athletes, patients with arthritis, and people that have experienced physical trauma ranging from mild to severe have been able to benefit from the use of Platelet Rich Plasma. For many years, doctors have used components of the patient’s own body to naturally restore damaged tissues with the help of PRP. When an injury occurs, the body’s first response is to deliver platelets, which attract the body’s stem cells. Ligaments, tendons, muscle, and joints can be healed more quickly when PRP therapy works with the body’s natural healing process.
Platelet Rich Plasma may also be combined with other healing modalities, such as Physical Therapy, medications, and massage, and it can even be used after surgery. Many patients that have lost hope in being healed or pain free found their solution in Platelet Rich Plasma therapy. A physician specializing in the use of this cutting edge therapy can design a treatment protocol based on individual needs to help patients overcome the challenges associated with pain and injuries.
- PRP for Hair Loss
- PRP is an emerging non-surgical therapy for natural hair follicle stimulation that can help to maintain hair density or treat thinning hair. Patricia Keller and her staff at Fall River Wellness use a unique hair restoration method, backed by clinical studies, that utilizes micro needling technology and PRP stem cell rejuvenation coupled with the power of our special blend of clinical protocols to reactivate hair follicles for fuller, denser hair regrowth. A patient’s own blood is drawn and processed, leaving only the enriched cells (platelet-rich plasma). The plasma is applied topically and microneedles are used to deliver the cells into the skin. PRP cells are also injected into the scalp. PRP contains essential proteins and your own body’s natural growth factors which stimulate hair growth.
