When you come across the term “holistic treatment,” what do you consider as the definition? Do you think about a procedure devoid of synthetic or toxic materials? Or, perhaps you envision a room with yoga mats, acupuncture needles and a diffuser pumping out various therapeutic oils. Medically speaking, the term “holistic” actually refers to a treatment pathway that addresses a patient as a “whole person.” For as much as holistic treatment options do include naturopathic properties (like those listed above), they can be innovative as well. Find out about some of the most innovative holistic treatments in Philadelphia, and where you can receive them!
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Holistic Treatments in Philadelphia
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy may sound almost too scientific to be a holistic therapy, but this innovative process of utilizing the body’s own healing components absolutely addresses the entire body – literally from head to toe.
By extracting growth factors from the body and reinjecting them into the area in need of healing, PRP therapy addresses:
- Sports-related injuries – spine, knee, muscle ligaments, tendonitis, arthritis and more
- Hair loss – for men and women
- Facial rejuvenation – to improve elasticity and collagen
Added Value of Receiving PRP Therapy
In addition to being a holistic method of treating a range of health conditions, PRP therapy has several other benefits:
- It’s minimally invasive
- Little to no pain is involved
- PRP is all natural, no toxic or synthetic materials are used
- Results are lasting and often permanent
- Visible results often occur within 3 to 4 treatments
PRP treatments can also be used in conjunction with stem cell therapy. Together, these holistic methods of addressing health conditions can expedite the healing progress. In fact, the combination of PRP therapy and stem cell extraction has been extremely effective in treating advanced injuries – even in the regrowth of cartilage.
