Autologous Conditioned Plasma (ACP) and Biologics Training for Pain Management Conditions

Autologous Conditioned Plasma (ACP) Treatment

ACP Therapy Training

Autologous Conditioned Plasma (ACP) aka PRP has numerous corrective pain management indications for patients that are non-responsive to conventional treatments. ACP injections have been utilized with a number of medical conditions including tendinopothies, joint pain, arthritis, and sports medicine applications. In this 1-Day course you will receive extensive training in the harvesting and administration of ACP including the use of biologics (concentrated growth factors) such as amniotic tissue as well as stem cells derived from adipose cells for use in patients. Enhance patient care and realize the benefits of using and offering these regenerative therapies within your practice and create new revenue streams and greater patient satisfaction.

This evidence based course will prepare attendees to diagnose, harvest, and administer these regenerative therapies in an office setting. These interventional procedures can be performed safely within an office setting (clean procedure | aseptic procedure) and can be used in combination with conventional treatments without complications and to the benefits of patients. Autologous Conditioned Plasma (PRP) can be used as a stand-alone treatment effectively or combined with Allograft CGF (Concentrated Growth Factors) to compliment traditional pain management therapies. Typically, ACP injections are cash basis procedures and the average cost to patients is approximately $600 - $800 per injection cycle (before biologics) or treatment in pain management applications.

Autologous Conditioned Plasma (ACP) Course Dates


Included in the course study will be concentrated growth factors to enhance your ACP injections using allograft concentrated growth factors and stem cells from amniotic tissue or bovine (A-Cell). Anecdotal studies and peer to peer cite reviews show increased biological activity, accelerated healing, and correction when used in combination with ACP. All attendees will receive complete injection protocols, standard of care, and complete information on the procedures to diagnose and gauge improvement of these conditions for treatment.

ACP Therapy Training


Give your patient the latest treatment options for pain, enhance patient care in the management of various pain conditions presented, and differentiate yourself from others with these expanded pain management procedures. The additional revenue streams associated with these procedures are attractive to physicians and are the perfect addition to any medical practice treating these various chronic soft tissue and joint related arthritis conditions.

As part of the course study you will be introduced to the various stem cell therapies also being performed in conjunction with ACP or conventional medicine. The growth in using mesenchymal cell therapies is expanding beyond orthopedic offices and the demand from patients is becoming popular. These experimental therapies are being used successfully globally and within the United States but do have additional limitations as these are not FDA-Approved and its uses are limited to orthopedic conditions for larger joint pain. Adipose Stem Cells (ASC) and Bone Marrow Stem Cells (BMAC) are the available options for physicians but there are no professional medical guidelines for who can and cannot receive stem cell therapy. Stem Cell Therapies are considered to be experimental by the FDA so the decision about who gets stem cell therapy is up to patients and doctors and there are legal requirements as to the advertisement of such within your practice.

The Adipose Stem Cell Therapies (ASC) and Bone Marrow Stem Cells (BMAC) procedures include all protocols for harvesting and re-injection, patient selection criteria, contraindications, and expected results for the most common types of arthritis to the knee and shoulder areas. Candidates for such treatment are usually mild to moderate degeneration of capsule and the most robust response to these treatments are candidates that are younger to middle age and in good medical health. There are other experimental uses of mesenchymal cell therapies such as Multiple Sclerosis and Alzheimer’s though the course will concentrates only in the pain management application therapies.

Empire Medical Training will prepare you to integrate these new procedures within your practice and apply the latest standard of care considerations to be able to perform these safe and effective nonsurgical procedures. We provide a large amount of supplemental data for review after the course and attendees will receive complete protocols for all the procedures associated with the ACP (Autologous Conditioned Plasma), Allograft CGF (Concentrated Growth Factors), and Stem Cell Therapies being employed with sports medicine, orthopedic offices, hospitals, and private practice. Marketing, pricing and packaging, and detailed pre and post-treatment options for patients are given as well as the legal, ethical, and administrative concerns associated with the introduction of these new procedures.

Give your patient the latest treatment options for pain, enhance patient care in the management of various pain conditions presented, and differentiate yourself from others with these expanded pain management procedures. The additional revenue streams associated with these procedures are attractive to physicians and are the perfect addition to any medical practice treating these various chronic soft tissue and joint related arthritis conditions.


  • Practice procedures such as ACP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and Amnio Products (Stem Cells) competently, safely, and effectively for their patient. Each participant will understand and learn how to avoid risks and associated complications.
  • Apply generally accepted protocols for the administration of Platelet Rich Plasma for various chronic and sub-acute medical conditions.
  • Describe the mechanism of action of Platelet Rich Plasma and the Amniotic products available and differences between the product characteristics, patient preferences, managing expectations, and after care for follow up after the interventional pain injection procedures.
