Prolotherapy and PRP on the Cutting Edge of Medical Technology

Filed under: prp/nursing homes — sketchcorner @ 11:22 pm

I just retuened from a Sun City nursing homes to see my grandmother and learned about PRP injections and prolotherapy treatments a while back, and once I read about it I started seeing quite a lot of mentiones of it here and there as a whole.
I thought to myself, if you have a sports injury such as a rotator cuff tear, then really why not try a treatment which is simple, harmless, and even inexpensive prior to to the intrusive surgery option?
More and more healthcare providers are coming to this conclusion, and prolotherapy is gaining steadily in popularity around the world. PRP which stands for Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy has been used (along with prolotherapy) for a variety of different conditions out there.
For example, Dr. Mitchell J. Bloom, graduated medical school in New York, completed his four year residency specialty training at The University of Rochester in 1989 in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, started his medical career as the Associate Medical Director of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at two hospitals in the U.S. and in 1989 he became the founder and Medical Director of The Centre for Mind – Body Medicine. Because PRP and prolotherapy injections are treatments aminly used in sports injury rehab you will not likely see it in Phoenix, Arizona and arizona luxury homes for the elderly as much. I am not saying it is never used in elderly care but PRP is just less likely to be seen in a arizona luxury homes or Sun City nursing home overall, that’s all.
Dr. Bloom is Board Certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, a Diplomat of The American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and a registered specialist medical doctor with The Medical Council of New Zealand, a member of the Australasian Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine, New Zealand Association of Musculoskeletal Medicine, Australasian Integrative Medical Association and the American Academy of Pain Medicine.
Sr. Bloom is a passionate believer in prolotherapy, and only one eminent example of a provider of the treatment. From China to Japan, from Australia to Spain to the U.S. prolotherapy is becoming a staple in the treatment of chronic pain and musculoskeletal injury.
