Platelet Rich Plasma Injection Treatment

Using the body’s own elements of natural regeneration certainly has an advantage in healing an injury, which is exactly the mechanism used when performing platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections. The natural response of the body to an injury is to incite an inflammatory response to attract certain healing elements to the site of injury through the blood vessel system. The platelets in our blood are one of the integral elements used in this healing process. 

The blood has been broken down into its three main components: platelet poor plasma (PPP), platelet rich plasma, and red blood cells. It is the platelet rich plasma that is the basis of all PRP therapies. The centrifugation separates the platelets from the other blood cells and increases their concentration. Then the increased concentration of platelets is combined with the remaining blood that was drawn.

PRP therapy may be used to manage numerous injuries including muscle injuries (hamstring sprains, biceps and triceps injuries, calf and quadriceps injuries), ligament injuries (ACL, MCL, LCL sprains and tears of the knees), tendon injuries (Achilles tendonitis, rotator cuff injuries, tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis), golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis), patellar and quadriceps tendonitis), degenerative conditions such as arthritis (osteoarthritis), joint pain, degenerative disc disease, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, neck and back pain, nerve injury, plastic surgery, burns, split-thickness skin graft donor sites, and stress fractures. It may also be used after surgical procedures to assist in the healing process in areas of poor blood supply.

Telehealth Can Connect the Dots Between Chronic Pain, Mental Health

 - Telehealth advocates have argued that a connected health platform can help providers improve care management for patients with chronic pain. A New Jersey-based pain management and neurology clinic is putting that idea to the test.

Relievus Pain Management, based in Cherry Hill, N.J., and serving a wide swath of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, has added a telemedicine platform to its list of treatments, which include medical marijuana, stem cell therapy, Ketamine infusion and electromedical therapy. The virtual care service enables the 20-site clinic’s 28 providers to monitor patients at home every day and change care plans as needed.

More importantly, the telehealth platform, developed by a Philadelphia-based startup called NeuroFlow, gives providers insight into the patient’s mental health – a key indicator of care plan adherence and an underlying cause for opioid addiction issues.

“We used to focus on one thing – the patient’s physical health,” says Young J. Lee, MD, a pain specialist and anesthesiologist and the clinic’s managing partner. “We used to document (a patient’s mental status), but we didn’t do anything about it. Now we’re paying attention to mental health and we’re realizing that pain is not just a physical issue. This is a physical and mental issue.”

Relievus integrated the NeuroFlow platform roughly three months ago. Participating patients are now able to download an app on their smartphone or mobile device, on which they log in each day to fill out an online questionnaire about their physical and mental health. On the other end, their care provider logs onto a dashboard each day to review the patient’s status and make changes to the care plan if needed.

Lee says the online platform is a vast improvement over the old method, in which providers asked patients to fill out a paper or tablet-based survey during their monthly visit. Patients were asked to think back over the previous month and try to describe their experiences – from which the provider would then have to decide whether to alter the care plan or keep going.

“Now we’re able to see on a daily basis how each patient is doing,” Lee says.

When factoring mental health into the treatment plan, that’s important. By listening to how each patient goes through his or her day, and how pain affects that daily routine, providers can begin to understand how pain affects the patient’s mental health. This, in turn, can lead to a better understanding of issues like stress, depression and addiction.

Lee says the mHealth platform is customizable, so that he can work with NeuroFlow’s technical team to select questions that address a specific condition. He anticipates modeling the platform to not only treat chronic pain, but PTSD, alcohol and drug abuse, smoking and other issues in which mental health and physical discomfort collide.

“This is not the final product,” he says. “There’s a lot more that can be done.”

And as healthcare providers, public health agencies and federal and state governments pour time and money into telehealth and mHealth treatments to combat opioid addiction and substance abuse, it’s important to remember that these platforms are still evolving.

As the technology has only been in use for three months, Lee says it will take time to gather enough data to determine its effectiveness. But that’s what mHealth can do – give providers information about their patients’ daily activities, including their mental health. Over time, they’ll have enough data to identify trends, causes and effects.

“This is a great tool,” Lee says of the mHealth platform. “We now have the chance to treat the whole patient.”
