Coastal Regen is excited to announce that we are now In-Network with TRICARE. TRICARE patients now may qualify for coverage of PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) injections for chronic knee pain and tennis elbow! The staff at Coastal Regen have been offering PRP treatments — a same-day, non-surgical procedure — for many years.
TRICARE may cover PRP injections if you’re diagnosed with:
- Mild to moderate chronic osteoarthritis of the knee.
- Lateral epicondylitis, also known as “tennis elbow.
What is PRP?
When you’re injured, your body immediately begins a natural healing process to repair the damaged tissue. Platelets migrate to the site of the injury and start releasing inflammatory signals to trigger the immune response that initiates rapid healing. Platelet-rich therapy, or PRP therapy, introduces a high concentration of platelets to a damaged or injured area. When platelets are introduced, they surround it and prompt an inflammatory response that triggers your body to send out waves of cells to the area to treat pain and possibly stimulate healing. If you’ve been diagnosed with either of these conditions and conservative treatments have been unsuccessful, you may qualify for coverage. Please call today to schedule your consultation.
