Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, is a form of regenerative medicine therapy that is focused on separating, identifying, and reintroducing platelets into the blood to promote healing and recovery. Similar to stem cell therapy, platelet rich plasma is focused on integrating healthy elements into the body to repair damaged tissue and relieve pain. But unlike stem cell therapy, PRP uses your own blood and platelets to promote healing, creating a circular process of regeneration.
What is platelet rich plasma?
Platelets are best known for their ability to clot the blood, but they are particularly powerful for regulating key mechanisms involved in the healing process. Platelets are composed of key proteins, or growth factors, that are instrumental in cell regeneration. By separating the platelet-rich plasma from the surrounding blood, specific growth factors are identified and utilized for injury recovery and healing.
How does it work?
The use of platelet rich plasma (PRP) requires drawing a patient’s blood, spinning it down, and separating platelets in a process called centrifugation. Then, the increased concentration of platelets is combined with the remaining blood (or plasma) and infused back into your system, promoting the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints.
Why should you choose Agape for Platelet Rich Plasma?
Dr. Williams and Dr. Franklin are passionate, precise, and prominent medical doctors with decades of experience and knowledge. Platelet rich plasma is an option we offer due to its simple circular structure directly from a patient, creating a renewable source of healing and relief. Together, Agape provides innovative regenerative medicine therapies that change the way pain and injury is perceived, change the way your body functions, and ultimately, change the way you enjoy life.
Stem Cell Therapy
Another treatment option we offer at Agape is Stem Cell Therapy. This form of regenerative medicine is focused on generating new, healthy cells that repair and/or replace older, damaged cells, and in turn, create fresh tissue that reduces pain and heals injuries. Stem cell therapy is an emerging treatment of the regenerative medicine world, with revolutionary potential for people with persistent pain, discomfort, and immobility.
