When PRP is injected into a damaged joint or tissue, it leads to a mild inflammatory process of the surrounding tendons, ligaments, and cartilage, which triggers the healing process. As a result of this inflammation, new tissue begins to develop. The tissue that is developed can then function like new tissue, which leads to a reduction or even disappearance of symptoms.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is obtained from spinning a patient’s blood in a centrifuge at high speeds. This process isolates a ...
What exactly are Stem Cell’s you ask? Stem Cells are cells that have not
yet been activated by the body. Stem cells in tissues can serve as an internal
repair system where they divide to replenish dead or damaged cells. Here at
Performance Medicine we use Mesenchymal Stem Cells. Cells that are ethically
sourced from Umbilical Cord of donors. Using this method, the cells have higher
concentrations of Growth Factors, Peptides, and Hyaluronic Acid ...
Our bodies are incredible machines. However, the business of living can wreak havoc on the natural functions our systems are supposed to perform. As energy stores are depleted and key vitamins are used, our bodies look for ways to compensate, often resulting in unwanted symptoms.
Luckily, IV Vitamin Therapy can help restore our body’s nutrient levels to their optimal state.

For women, the most pronounced changes come in their 40s and 50s, but can been seen as early as their mid-30s. Many more women are having Hormonal Symptoms and Hormone Imbalance earlier in life.
Osteoarthritis, which causes Knee Pain and joint stiffness, impacts over 27 million Americans and is a leading cause of disability. Several treatment options for osteoarthritis exist, including exercise, weight control, bracing, anti-inflammatories, injections, etc. Stem Cell Therapy is becoming a more preferred treatment using PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma. PRP is produced from a patient’s own blood, it delivers a high concentration of growth factors to arthritic cartilage that can enhance the healing process.
Testosterone is a sex hormone that drives more than just libido. In men it affects physical appearance, mood, bone density, muscle mass, and more. How much of the hormone the body produces is determined by signals from the brain that are delivered to the testies via the pituitary gland.
