Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP, for Soft Tissue Injuries

North Texas Musculoskeletal Medicine specializes in regenerative orthopedics, osteopathic manipulation, and sports medicine.  Our treatments enhance the body’s natural ability to heal by combining time-tested treatments with state of the art technology.  Utilizing the most advanced, non-surgical orthopedic options available, we provide alternatives to surgery for musculoskeletal injuries.

Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP, is an emerging treatment in Regenerative Medicine that utilizes cutting edge technology to enhance the body’s natural ability to heal itself.  PRP therapy accelerates healing of injured tissue and osteoarthritis by stimulating growth factors the body naturally uses to regenerate tissue.

Osteopathic Manipulation Treatment, OMT, is a system of hands-on techniques used to alleviate pain and correct structural changes in the body that impede function.  OMT improves blood flow and opens lymphatic pathways through the body, helping to nourish tendons, ligaments and other soft tissue, relieve stress, and aid in detoxification.

Prolotherapy is a generalized term for the use of injection substances that cause the body to regenerate tissue at an accelerated rate.  “Prolo” is short for “proliferation,” because it causes regeneration, growth and formation of new tissue in damaged areas.

 Key Concepts of Osteopathic Medicine

Structure and function are reciprocally interrelated.  In other words, structure influences function. And, because all parts of the body are interconnected by myofascial tissue running throughout the body, dysfunction in one area can affect the function in other areas.  OMT removes these restrictions, allowing for maximum structural function.

The body possesses an innate ability to heal.  This philosophy combined with new procedures in Regenerative Medicine, such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Prolotherapy, enhance and accelerate this natural process, effectively bridging the gap between medication and surgery.  More about these philosophies.

What Our Patients Have to Say

Dr. Minotti was able to provide the care I needed rather than just giving me medicine to relieve pain. He has proven to work at the root issue of my pain with a specific plan at addressing overall wellness. I would recommend Dr. Minotti for any friend or family.   James

I was very IMPRESSED with the treatment I received from Dr. Roop. I limped into his office in pain from an injury the previous night. Upon examination, Dr. Roop knew exactly what I had done and how to treat me. I walked out of his office limp free and within 24 hours I was completely pain free.   Debra
