OrthoBiologics Q&A

What are orthobiologics?

Orthobiologics are substances that help heal the body, easing pain and restoring function. They’re usually created from substances naturally present in the body. Orthobiologics may reduce the need for pain medications, steroid injections, or surgery.

The team at Advanced Spine and Pain Clinics provides many innovative treatments to relieve pain, restore function, and rejuvenate the body, including orthobiologics.

What are some types of orthobiologics?

Advanced Spine and Pain Clinics uses many types of orthobiologics. Treatment options include:

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy

PRP therapy is an orthobiologic that uses your platelets to support healing. Platelets are tiny cells found in your blood best known for their ability to stop cuts from bleeding. These tiny cells also contain growth factors and specialized proteins that initiate the repair process.

PRP therapy is made from a sample of your blood and contains a high concentration of platelets. The team at Advanced Spine and Pain Clinics injects the PRP directly into the injured or damaged tissue.


Prolotherapy is an injection that contains a sterile solution that aims to strengthen weakened or injured tissue by stimulating your body’s repair response. The team uses prolotherapy to help strengthen connective tissue and form new collagen.

The team recommends a series of at least eight injections to get the best outcome.

Bone marrow aspiration and injections

Your bone marrow contains unique, blank cells your body uses to make bone cells, muscle cells, and nerve cells. 

For bone marrow aspiration and injections, the team at Advanced Spine and Pain Clinics aspirates and processes your bone marrow. Then, they inject it into the body to support healing.
