      Even though blood is primarily a liquid (plasma), it also holds microscopic solid elements, or white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Platelets play an integral role in clotting blood, but they also contain proteins known as growth factors, which support healing and recovery processes.

      With PRP, the plasma contains significantly more platelets than normal, so the concentration of growth factors can be five to 10 times higher than normal. Platelets are known to provide a diverse array of growth promoters that have the ability to work independently or with other proteins and cells to improve the healing process.

      What is PRP therapy?

      This therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints.

      For PRP therapy, a patient first provides a blood sample, which goes through a process known as centrifugation to separate and concentrate the platelets from the other cells. The PRP is then injected at the injury site to treat various conditions.

       

      What conditions are treated with PRP Treatment?

      PRP Therapy can treat a variety of pathological conditions.

      PRP therapy is a nonsurgical solution to healing injuries in joints, tendons, and other soft tissues. It’s also used in many cosmetic procedures to rejuvenate the skin. Plastic surgeons use it as well, to help speed the healing process following surgery.

      PRP has also shown promise in helping speed up the recovery process after a fracture. It’s an effective therapy for numerous other musculoskeletal issues, including:

      • Acute and chronic tendon injuries, such as tennis elbow
      • Muscle and ligament injuries
      • Degenerative joint disease (osteoarthritis)
      • Chronic and acute back pain due to injury or degenerative processes
      • Pain Management
      • Hair loss
      • Signs of Aging in face or skin

      What are the advantages of PRP Therapy?

      This therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints.

      Rather than masking pain, PRP therapy actually enhances your body’s own natural processes to repair damaged tissue. By introducing high concentrations of collagen and other natural growth factors into an injured area, PRP therapy resolves the underlying condition rather than just treating the symptoms. Side effects are limited to nonexistent with this treatment. There’s no risk of rejection because your own blood is used.

      As a natural remedy with medically-proven effectiveness, PRP therapy coincides perfectly with the integrative medicine approach of treating your medical concerns with your body’s own restorative processes whenever possible.
