Platelet Rich Plasma- PRP Therapy is the Future of Medicine

Medical staff adjusting IV

Imagine if you could take your own cells and use them to regenerate a damaged knee, elbow or ankle, how would that change your ability to perform?  Imagine using your own cells to re-grow hair in the balding patch on your crown and forehead, would that make you more confident?  Imagine  if you could use your own Platelet Rich Plasma to smooth wrinkles, tone and firm skin, reduce stretchmarks and scars, or give your whole face a rejuvenating, non-surgical face-lift!

The future of medicine has arrived and those of you who live in the Northern Colorado area now have a state-of-art facility in Benchmark Medical Group to give you the body and look you’ve always dreamed of!  We are able to provide multiple procedures to regenerate your body, joints, skin and hair with this amazing treatment protocol.

How Does it Work?

Whenever you are injured, your body has an amazing ability to send platelets and building blocks to the area to begin the necessary actions to re-create new collagen, the most prevalent protein you have.  These platelets are necessary for the tissues to heal, and for the body to undergo regeneration.  Through our amazing Harvest® technology of extracting platelets, we can now remove a small amount of blood from your body, separate the plasma, the platelets and the blood cells and use that material to regenerate your tissues!

The platelets are then re-introduced to the plasma and the very special mixture of regenerative material can be re-introduced to the body where it causes a cascade of actions necessary to re-generate the tissue.  This amazing technology allows you to restore and regenerate your damaged tissues and allows your body to create new, rejuvenated collagen to give you a younger looking face, better moving joints, fewer scars, more hair and many other benefits.

Is it Safe?

The use of Platelet Rich Plasma is not new, and the technology has been used around the world for several years.  However, advanced in technology and an explosion of new research has made the PRP Therapy easier to apply, and more-widespread in its application. The safety of the technique and the use of PRP could not be safer.  The use of your own materials makes it easy for your body to do what is necessary to regenerate your from your platelets and plasma carrier. There are no adverse reactions like those found in other cosmetic fillers, and there is no risk of tissue rejection, or other complications and side effects that are found with other pharmaceuticals.

Does it hurt?

With the use of skin numbing creams, and other helpful tools, we minimize discomfort and make sure that the procedure does not hurt.  Because the procedures do involve injections, there may be a slight sting sensation depending on the procedure.  The physicians and assistants at Benchmark Medical Group will do everything possible to minimize discomfort and make the experience as pleasant as possible.

What benefits should I expect?

The Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy can benefit many different tissues in the body.  Peripheral nerves like those affected with Peripheral Neuropathy can improve sensation following PRP Therapy. Cartilage like that found in degenerative osteoarthritic knees can improve mobility, joint space and function following PRP Therapy.  Scar tissue, like that found following C-Section surgeries, stretch mark scars from pregnancy and weight lifting, and other superficial scars and damaged tissues can demonstrate rejuvenation and reduction of scar tissues following PRP Therapy.  Facial wrinkles, smile-lines, brow-lines and age spots can show improvements following Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment. Fuller Lips, smoother skin and a younger appearance is expected following PRP therapy. Hair can re-grow and thicken with the use of PRP treatments and patients (and their hairstylists) report thicker, stronger hair following PRP treatment.

Essentially the list of body areas that can be safely and effectively is very long!  If you have a particular health condition or have a question as to how PRP can help you, give us a call or send us a message at contactus@benchmarkmedicalgroup.com!

Is gravity murdering your joints?

Is gravity murdering your joints?

Example of the amazing results!
Example of the amazing results!

Do you suffer with low back pain and stiffness every time you stand up?  Are you limping or favoring one leg because of pain or stiffness?  Do you have one-sided ankle, knee or hip pain that just never seems to go away?  Do you look in the mirror and see that one shoulder is lower than the other?

Unfortunately, unless you are an astronaut slated to head toward the International Space Station, you must contend with gravity at all times.  Gravity keeps us planted to the earth, and it also plays a very significant role in growth and development of the bones and tissues of the body.  If you are not symmetrical, the pressure that is created simply from your normal daily activities can set you up for pain, suffering and eventually disability.

We are meant to be symmetrical creatures, two eyes, ears, arms and legs.  This symmetry is important for attractiveness, and plays an important part in how we function in the world.  Unfortunately, trauma, genetics and poor postural and gait habits can make us lose our symmetry and the results can be disastrous.  Knee pain and degeneration can prevent you from playing sports, exercising, or even carrying your laundry down the stairs.  Hip pain and degeneration can make it hard to move around and may eventually require hip replacement if the degeneration gets too bad.  Low back pain is an epidemic, affecting nearly 80% of the population at any given time.  All of this pain and suffering reduces quality of life, and leads to disabling conditions that wreck our enjoyment.

Legs are meant to be symmetrical, and if you have one leg that is shorter than the other because of growth or injury during the teen years, this inequality can place abnormal pressures on muscles, tendons and discs and can lead to pelvic and spinal muscles being weak and imbalanced.  These weak and unbalanced muscles can cause pressures on pain-sensitive ligaments, tendons, bone, and discs and can lead to accelerated degeneration of the joint involved.  Eventually the imbalance will created stresses and strains great enough to cause the tissues to deform and they will degenerate even more. Abnormal posture hurts!

Fortunately, at Benchmark Medical Group, located in Windsor in Northern Colorado,  we have the tools to detect leg length differences and can prescribe the proper heel lifts or orthotics to remedy the situation.  Many patients report much less pain and better gait and function simply by placing a small lift in the shoe!  The analysis requires a very specific x-ray and measurement to determine the exact amount of leg length difference and once we have this information, specific exercises and therapies can be applied to get you back to symmetry!

power-plateIf we find these differences in young adults and teens, we can often prevent pain and dysfunction with early intervention.  However, if the leg length problem is long standing, muscles tendons and ligaments have most likely adapted to the abnormal position and this may necessitate rehabilitation.  Fortunately, we have many different methods to get muscles and joints working properly again. We have an Alter-G  anti-gravity treadmill than can re-train your gait while removing the pressure of gravity.  We have Power Plate® Physical therapy that can get your small stabilizing muscles around the spine hips and legs working properly again and a team of therapists who can assist you in safely rehabilitating your body.

If the degeneration is extensive, we have some very cutting-edge treatments that can not only lessen pain but can actually re-generate your joints and soft tissues.  Injections of Surpartz® into reduced joint space can improve cushion and lessen pain.  Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy involves removing  some of your own blood, processing the plasma with your own platelets and re-injection into the damaged tissues.  This PRP therapy effectively allows you to use your own cells to accelerate healing and regeneration of the tissues with little to no side effects and tremendous safety considering it is your own plasma being injected.

We have traction and CBP® rehabilitation therapies that can remove pressure from compressed lumbar spine discs and joints, remove pressure from the delicate nerves of the spine and get better pain-free range of motion.  We also have an incredibly effective weight loss program to lessen the loads on all of your joints a get you looking and feeling your best. Plus our amazing K-Laser can assist in healing time, improve circulation and reduce pain, often in just a few treatments!

If you are suffering with pain, what are you waiting for?  Call us today to see if you are candidate for our amazing treatments and to receive a screening to determine if 8qKHyVDyour pain and other health conditions are caused or complicated by an leg-length inequality.  Why suffer?  Call Now!

Want a better love life? Focus on YOUR health and fitness FIRST!

Want a better love life? Focus on YOUR health and fitness FIRST!

 

fitgirlDo you struggle in relationships?  Do you find it hard to find someone that you want to spend time with?  Are you in a relationship that has seen better days?  Do you want to re-kindle the old passion that was present at the beginning of your relationship, but has now faded?

If you said yes to any of these questions, you may be in need of a relationship overhaul and the answer may be in a place where you weren’t looking, YOU! 

Relationships require time, energy and passion.  One of the best ways to generate more of all of these is to focus on how healthy and fit you are personally.  If you have “let yourself go” in your body weight, your stamina and cardiovascular fitness, or if you have stopped caring what you eat because you know that “he/she will still love me if I’m fat”, then you are definitely heading toward love-life uncertainty.  The truth is, if you have gained weight since you got married or if you have stopped working out because you don’t think it matters how you look anymore, you couldn’t be further from the truth!

The best way to generate more energy is to lose weight and get fit.  The best way to have more stamina is to build muscle and work on your endurance, and the best way to generate more of those feel-good chemicals that your brain and body needs to be happy is to exercise and get fit!  When you have more energy personally, you will be able to give more of yourself to your partner.  When you are happy with your fitness and you smile when you look in the mirror with self-love, you will be much better able to give love to your spouse.  The truth is, you need to be healthy in order to continue to nurture and grow your relationship, and if you are single, you are much more likely to have the energy to find a mate if you are physically fit, mentally sharp and able to give 100% to your love life! Better health and fitness will get you so much more out of life!

If you are seeking a way to re-kindle the passions of your relationship, what better way than to get fit and healthy together? When you exercise with your partner, you will strengthen your bond and produce the pheromones and chemicals that are created when you are in love!  You and your partner losing weight together will show that you are committed to yourself and each other in a way that few other activities can.  When you prepare and eat meals together, your love will be strengthened and you will deepen the bond that keeps you together.

If you are looking for a guaranteed way to improve your love life and your life in general, Benchmark Medical Group in Windsor in Northern Colorado has solutions for you that can get the love flowing in your life.  Medical Weight Loss, Power Plate® fitness and physical therapy sessions, bio-identical hormone replacement therapies, cosmetic body sculpting and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapies, and postural and structural rehabilitation can get you looking and feeling younger, more vibrant, more confident and we can help you get the love life and level of fitness you deserve!!  What are you waiting for?  Call today to see how we can light that spark again!

Do you want to rejuvenate your body? PRP and the secret tools at Benchmark Medical Group can!

benefitsofb12Do you want to rejuvenate your body?

Are you feeling tired all the time?  Do you look in the mirror and see someone that is not the real you?  Do you have no energy at the end of the day and struggle to find joy in your life?  Have you put on 20, 30, 50 or more pounds since you graduated high school? This obesity is often coupled with pain and that pain can become chronic and debilitating.

Pain leads to you not wanting to move your body.  The obesity, low energy and loss of motivation often cause negative, self-destructive thoughts.  Those depressive and destructive thoughts make you seek out activities that make you feel good.  Unfortunately, most of those feel good activities are also self-destructive and you may turn to alcohol, drugs, and food to feel better.  This vicious cycle of eating, drinking, pain and weight gain lead to a reduced quality of life and more pain and suffering. Eventually, you can’t reach your life goals.

Are you ready to stop the cycle?  Are you committed to feeling good without fatty, sugary food, endlessalcoholic drinks, and drugs that only make us forget our pain temporarily? Are you ready to smile again? Are you ready to walk the road filled with joy, accomplishment, and fitness?  If you answered yes to these questions, Benchmark Medical Group may have the solution for you!
