Midlothian, TX Injured Athletes may be Candidates for PRP Injections and BMAC Stem Cell Therapy
Midlothian, Texas is not only the hub for North Texas’ cement industry. It is also home to active residents of all ages, ranging from young high school athletes to older recreational athletes.

Active individuals of all ages can experience a sports-related injury or overuse injury at any given time. The most common injuries include:
- Chronic tendon injuries
- Acute muscle injuries

- Bone fractures
Regenerative medicine, available at OPTIMAL, is a non-surgical, safe and effective procedure that utilizes a patient’s own blood and bone marrow to alleviate painful injury symptoms and to help accelerate the body’s healing process. OPTIMAL offers PRP injections and BMAC stem cell therapy.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections merge technology with the body’s natural abilities for accelerated healing of a variety of conditions. Platelets, one of the four main components of human blood, initiate tissue repair by releasing growth factors. These growth factors are a naturally occurring substance capable of stimulating cellular growth and accelerating the healing process in soft tissue injuries.
BMAC Stem Cell Therapy
A significant portion of the body’s stem cells are found in human bone marrow. Bone marrow aspirate concentrate, BMAC stem cell therapy, contains growth and healing factors similar to what is found in platelet rich plasma plus an additional concentration of ‘pluripotent’ stem cells, which further contribute to the regenerative process.
