Understanding Stem Cells and PRP Treatments

Spine specialists in Los Angeles commonly use PRP treatments, or platelet rich plasma treatments, and stem cell injection therapy to treat spinal injuries and back pain.

Stem cell injection therapy is more advanced, and can differentiate into new tissue that is lost, and stimulate the body’s repair response.
