Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Injection Procedures. PRP in Palm Beach County

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Procedures. PRP Injections in Jupiter, Florida at NovaGenix.

In case you have never heard of PRP, you're missing out on an amazing new procedure that most people know very little about. As it turns out Platelet Rich Plasma therapy has been around for a while yet only recently has it begun to be a viable option for patients looking to benefit from its effectiveness. To start, lets ask ourselves, What is PRP?

PRP Therapy

Platelet rich plasma, also called as "PRP", is a procure where a patient’s blood is drawn and then spun and separated using a centrifuge. The blood is then separated into several distinct layers including red blood cells, white blood cells and the platelet rich plasma. The separation of the PRP produces a concentration of platelets above the normal levels that would be found in the blood. Platelets are the cells that cause the clotting of our blood, but they also possess tremendous potential in enhancing the rapid healing of muscles, tendons, and ligaments in patients who may have aggravated injuries sustained during physical activity. 

There are many Studies that suggest that the growth factors which are released by platelets, may help improve and speed up the repairing of tissue, and accelerate the healing process by adding a higher concentration of growth factors and cytokines by creating a PRP sample. When a patient comes in with an injury, the PRP process takes around an hour and uses their own blood to create the PRP sample and then inject the sample into desired area that needs to be healed. The results have been incredible as most patients need only one session to see dramatic improvement. 

PRP is commonly used to treat the following conditions

·         Osteoarthritis of the Knee, Shoulder, Hip and Spine
·         Rotator Cuff Tears
·         Chronic Plantar Fasciitis
·         ACL Injuries
·         Pelvic Pain and Instability
·         Back and Neck Injuries
·         Tennis Elbow
·         Ankle Sprains
·         Tendinitis
·         Ligament Sprains

How Long Does PRP Take To See Results?

As with any medical procedure, it will vary from person to person but typically we see the following trends. Day one after PRP most patients report minor discomfort at the injection site due to the induced inflammation.  The stiffness goes away usually within a day or so and may last up to a week. After a week many patients report a decrease in pain and over the next few weeks will report improvements in mobility as the PRP begins to repair and heal the affected areas. The maximum effect of PRP is usually seen 4-6 weeks after the procedure and is when a patient can tell us if they are 50, 60, 70% healed or more. Variation will occur due to severity and complexity of injuries and several factors such as adherence to medical advice and genetics. The once thing that’s certain is PRP can only help and most everyone who undergoes the procedure has been impressed with the results.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy Programs in Palm Beach at NovaGenix. Jupiter Low T Clinic

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is a medical protocol for men who have been tested and have low testosterone levels. A patient will come in to see the doctor and have a physical exam, and consultation and then get their lab work done to test their bloods hormone concentration for their total and free testosterone, PSA, estrogen levels and more. TRT has consistently been shown to have extremely positive health benefits with only a minimal risk of side effects. Furthermore, the benefits of testosterone therapy can be both physical and mental, helping patients not just look better but feel better as well. The therapeutic restoration of testosterone levels to be within the normal range by using TRT has been shown to:

  • Significantly increase one’s lean body mass
  • Drastically decrease an individual’s fat mass
  • Increase bone mineral density
  • Improve reproductive functioning
  • Improve one’s mood and well-being

Where some benefits will start to appear in the first month of therapy, most effects begin to take place over the first few months. Each patient is different and responds at a slightly different rate, however all patients benefit from having optimized their testosterone levels. All of these benefits have made testosterone replacement therapy usage increase significantly over the past few years, and with good reason. Why? Because it works. TRT is usually well received due to recent published medical studies showing its efficacy and safety. As long as a patient is under a doctor’s care and being monitored, TRT is completely safe just as long as testosterone is kept within normal, physiologic levels. This is why it’s important to have a qualified and experienced physician who is able to understand your body, your needs and how TRT protocol should work.

Testosterone replacement therapy produces a reasonable increase in lean body mass (muscle mass) in men with low T. TRT users normally gain around three to six pounds of lean muscle mass in the first six months of therapy. As men age, they lose muscle mass, typically about 0.5 to 1.0% per year after they turn 40. This rate in reduction becomes much faster after the age of 40 and is much worse if they have low testosterone. Muscle contributes a significant amount to an individual’s resting metabolism. Therefore, any loss in muscle will slow down the resting metabolism. Once T levels are stabilized within normal range, some increases in muscle mass typically start to taper off. This stabilization often occurs after around six months of treatment. You will look lean and tone, and feel amazing.

Testosterone therapy also produces a moderate decrease in body fat, especially abdominal fat mass, in elderly men with low T. Typical fat loss will range anywhere between five to ten pounds in the first six months of TRT treatment. So you will not see a significant change in weight, but rather a real change in BMI. You will have more muscle and less fat. You will feel energized and stronger with more focus. You will in short, feel like a new man. Most patients are reporting an incredible turn around in just a few weeks of having started at NovaGenix.

As men age, they typically will gain fat mass, especially abdominal (otherwise known as visceral) fat. Besides giving you an unwanted gut and love handles, this increase in fat increases the incidence and risk of cardiovascular problems. TRT for men with low levels can keep you thinner and healthier since long-term studies consistently show a decrease in fat mass and men at healthier weight suffer fewer chronic health conditions, TRT can help improve your health so that you live BETTER, longer. You deserve to enjoy a healthy active lifestyle and love life well into your later years. We can help you look, live and feel your best.

For more information on TRT therapy, visit Call us today at 561-277-8260 or email us at and one of our clinical experts will help you determine in hormone therapy is right for you. We can help to test, diagnose and treat you to start your TRT protocol today.

How To Heal Faster From Athletic Injuries With PRP Therapy at NovaGenix in Jupiter, Florida

How To Heal Faster With PRP From Athletic Injuries

Athletes have traditionally had a higher rate of ligament and tendon injuries than most individuals due to the nature of their given activities. Whether it’s a tear to a knee or shoulder or strain to an ankle, hamstring or back, its extremely common to see young men and women undergoing surgical procedures to repair damage to their bodies. The recent increase in participation in training of MMA and other combat sports, such as jiu-jitsu, and boxing has led to a greater number of sports related injuries in participants. These are individuals who might not typically have another competitive athletic outlet other than your average gym membership or pickup game in the park. What we’ve seen is an increase in injuries suffered as a result of overtraining, falls, contact and impact. Regardless of the sport or activity a person participates in, there is a very good chance that they’ll see one type of injury if the train long enough.

Lately, there has been much discussion about the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) technique and its huge potential for effectively treating sports or work related injuries. Several famous MMA athletes — Michael Bisping, Daniel Cormier, Jose Aldo and many others — have undergone PRP for various injuries and conditions, like sprained knees and chronic tendon injuries. Where in the past, these have typically been treated with medications, PT, or on many occasions, surgery, today doctors are more often than not, turning to PRP as an alternative or an addition to their treatment options.

What Is Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP)?
Blood is mostly made up of plasma, red cells, white cells, and platelets –which are most famously known for their role in clotting blood. Platelets also contain growth factor proteins which regulate the growth of cells as well as their division, and help repair injuries. PRP (Platelet-rich Plasma) is plasma with a greater concentration of platelets — and, as a result, concentration of growth factors. This will cause the injured area, which has been introduced with PRP to heal at a much faster rate.

To receive PRP, blood is drawn from a patient and then the platelets are separated from other blood cells by centrifugation, or spinning. They are then mixed with the patient’s own blood sample until a platelet concentration well above baseline is attained.

How Does PRP Work?
The inflamed/injured area/tissue can be directly injected with the PRP, alongside, thus improving the healing by treating the injured area with PRP to promote healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints. Basically, it can be applied to various musculoskeletal problems.

What Conditions are Treated with PRP?
PRP is mostly used in the treatment of Chronic Tendon Injuries, Acute Ligament and Muscle Injuries, Surgery, Knee Arthritis, or Fractures. It has also shown to be excellent for hair restoration, ED, non-surgical facial rejuvenation and even osteoarthritis.

PRP Treatment holds great promise and has actually has quite a few success stories, not just in MMA but other mainstream sports as well. PGA golfer Tiger Woods and MLB pitcher Steven Strausbaurg are two such examples. Side effects of PRP injections are almost nonexistent as the patient is using their own blood, which should cause no reaction. Some rest is needed immediately following the procedure for a day or so, and then typically followed by a stretching and strengthening. The results are rapid and many athletes are back to training in a day or so with positive results. As always, follow your physician’s advice.
If you are considering PRP and want to discuss your options with our medical staff, please call 561-277-8260 for more information on this amazing treatment. We can even send our team to your gym or facility to treat your athletes on their schedule. We understand how disruptive injuries are for a team and competitors so we can help keep you in top physical shape. Email us at or call us today!

Treating Menopause For Women With BioIdentcal Hormone Therapy. NovaGenix in Palm Beach County, Fl.

Balancing Hormones With BHRT For Women Can Be Tricky, But Once Optimized The Difference Is Night And Day

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy: Testing andTreatment

There’s been a significant amount of research and publiciy about Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). Fortunately, there have tremendous advancement in treatment options and medication for treating menopause symptoms with hormones. Most women don’t even know that there are safe options for the optimization and balancing of hormones. Bioidentical hormones have been shown to be highly successful for women seeking to relieve the symptoms of aging.

Synthetic vs. Bio-IdenticalHormones

The safer choice for our patients is to use hormones identical to those that a woman make on their own, otherwise known as native estrogens. (estradiol, estriol, and estrone are the main ones produced in a womens body in the greatest levels). These hormones are considered bio-identical, are they are made from yams and soy and once synthesized, they are distributed out of specialty pharmacies to patients.

Regular Testing and Customized TreatmentPlans

Testing must be a regular protocol for each patient when starting and undergoing any BHRT program. When one hormone is out of balance, it can have a domino effect of the entire endocrine system and other hormone levels often follow suit and begin to fluctuate. When woman’s ovarian reserves start to decline at perimenopause, their thyroid, adrenal, and other hormones begin to increase production to make up for the imbalance. Having total hormone optimization so that the levels are all steady and balanced will ensure better health for a patient.
Regardless of the type of estrogen a woman may be using; they should be tested at least annually, and be prescribed a program that has the appropriate-dose estrogen effective for them. Customized treatment programs need to be customized to each individual, and should determine how each individual woman’s metabolizes estrogen, progesterone or any other hormones used.

Take Charge of your health

Not only is it beneficial for some woman to supplement their own hormones to achieve a healthy balance, but women should be aware of the possible risks from external hormones that they unknowingly may ingest or become exposed to on a daily basis. Some of these external hormones often include estrogen mimicking environmental toxins which an be often found in some foods, plastics, lotions, deodorants, cleaning supplies, antibacterial products, cosmetics, sunscreens, and more. The list of endocrine disrupting products is truly quite disturbing and excessive.
Being proactive and well educated is paramount for achieving the best health possible: getting tested annually, mammograms and breast exams and simple lifestyle changes will all help contribute to a happier and healthier  person with optimized hormone levels. It takes a little effort to achieve the results we want and deserve. Whereas as medication will certainly help on its own, having a few lifestyle changes to maximize your body’s ability to function will make a significant difference. Its’ important to seek to an experienced physician who understands the balance needed and what we can do to ensure a long, happy healthy life. With close to two decades of experience in BHRT, we strive to help our patients find a natural healthy balance to their not just their hormones but their lives.

PRP Therapy: How Can Your Own Blood Heal Your Injuries and Chronic Pain at NovaGenix in Jupiter, Fl.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Injections. What You Need To Know About This Amazing Procedure Being Used To Treat Injuries, Pain and Even Hair Loss and Facial Rejuvenation. 

prp or platelet rich plasma injections in Jupiter Florida at NovaGenix helps heal sports injuries


For those who don’t know what PRP is, its short for Platelet Rich Plasma, an innovative an exciting branch of sports medicine which allows an athlete to heal and recover from chronic pain and/or injuries of the tendons, muscles, ligaments, cartilage, nerves, and more. The treatment is a safe, non-surgical alternative that uses no drugs. With PRP injections, the patient’s own blood platelets are the healing agent, making it not only safer but an optimal form of healing for athletes wishing to recover faster from ailments and injuries.

prp therapy injections in Palm Beach at NovaGenix in Jupiter for platelet injections

The idea behind PRP is simple, blood platelets help stop a cut from bleeding. But research has now shown that platelets do more than just coagulate and stop blood flow; they also release growth factors, which draw special regenerative cells (“progenitor cells”) to the site of the injury. Platelet-rich plasma therapy maximizes this platelet/progenitor cell relationship.
The physician will perform a simple blood draw. The patient’s blood is then placed in a centrifuge that separates the platelets and plasma from the red blood cells. After around 15 minutes, the platelet-rich plasma is removed from the centrifuge machine. The physician will then place a needle into the damaged area of your body that requires treatment, and inject the platelet-rich plasma into the injury site. The high concentration of platelets is loaded with growth factors, which expedites the healing and recovery process. This entire procedure is done in-office and takes about an hour to complete. In some cases, a physician may even be able to go to your gym and treat multiple patients’ onsite for a small additional fee. The procedure is that simple and safe that it can be performed almost anywhere.
After you receive a PRP injection, you will be asked to return to for a follow-up appointment six to eight weeks later. Your sports medicine physician will evaluate your injury to see how effective PRP therapy has been. While some patients may be fully or nearly recovered, most patients will return for two or three more treatments. Injections are usually spaced eight to 12 weeks apart. Your physician will discuss the best treatment options for you.
