What is Platelet Rich Plasma?

PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma is a patient’s own blood plasma where the platelets have been concentrated using a centrifuge. The concentrated platelets found in PRP encompass gigantic reservoirs of bioactive proteins, including growth factors that are vital to start and quicken tissue repair and regeneration. These bioactive proteins start connective tissue healing: bone, tendon, and ligament regeneration and repair, encourage development of new blood vessels and kindle the wound healing process.

How Does PRP Work?

To formulate PRP, a small quantity of blood is taken from the patient. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge. The centrifuge whirls and automatically produces the PRP. The whole process takes less than 15 minutes and upsurges the concentration of platelets and growth factors up to 500%. When PRP is vaccinated into the target area, it arouses the tendon or ligament, triggering mild inflammation that prompts the healing procedure. Consequently, new collagen starts to develop. As this collagen matures, it begins to contract, causing the tightening and consolidation of the tendons or ligaments of the target zone.

Advantages

  • Patients can see a noteworthy improvement in symptoms, a decrease in pain as well as, a notable return of function. The PRP treatment may delay or eliminate the need for more aggressive treatments such as long term medication or surgery.

Is PRP Right For Me?

If you have a tendon or ligament injury and old-style methods have not provided relief, then PRP therapy may be the solution. The process is less aggressive and less costly than surgery. It will heal tissue with negligible or no scarring and assuages further degeneration of the tissues. There will be a preliminary assessment with your doctor to see if PRP therapy is right for you.
