Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a form of regenerative medicine therapy focused on isolating, cataloging, and reintroducing platelets into the blood to promote recovery and healing. Like stem cell therapy, platelet-rich plasma focuses on integrating healthy organic material into the body to relieve pain and repair damaged tissue. However, PRP uses your blood and platelets to promote healing, creating a circular regeneration process, unlike stem cell therapy.
What is platelet rich plasma?
Platelets are best known for their capacity to clot the blood, but they are essential for regulating critical functions of your body that are involved in the healing process. Platelets are composed of critical proteins, or growth factors, that are instrumental in cell regeneration. Specific growth factors are classified and employed for injury recovery and healing by isolating the platelet-rich plasma from the surrounding blood.
How does it work?
The use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) requires a process called Centrifugation. It involves drawing a patient’s blood, spinning it, and separating platelets. The mixture with an increased platelet concentration is then combined with the remaining blood (or plasma) and infused back into your system. The high platelet count will promote the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints.
