Stem Cell/Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) in Hilton Head Island

Imagine being able to repair joints without potentially risky surgery. You can with the groundbreaking Stem Cell/PRP therapy that’s now available at Fraum Chiropractic Life Center.

The therapy has been used by numerous professional athletes to provide noninvasive treatment for injuries. You don’t, however, have to be an elite athlete to experience the benefits of Stem Cell/PRP, which is safe and effective.

An Alternative to Traditional Treatments

Perhaps you’ve tried conventional treatment such as surgery, steroid injections or anti-inflammatory medications to get pain relief. Those options may only provide temporary relief without getting to the root of the problem.

With Stem Cell/PRP, however, you can experience relief and healing naturally and non-invasively.

What Is Stem Cell/PRP?

Considered to be a form of regenerative medicine, PRP separates your body’s natural healing elements and distributes them to the parts of your body that need them.

Dr. Heather Hinshelwood (Dr. H for short) utilizes Platelet Rich Plasma (Pure PRP) because it contains a high concentration of platelets. To prepare the PRP injection, she will use a tube of a patient’s blood that is spun in a centrifuge.

Next, she injects the activated platelets into the joint or tendon where damage has occurred. Dr. H is among a select group of doctors around the United States to provide this revolutionary therapy.
