Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma Injection

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is a pain therapy treatment performed with natural, minimally invasive, injection therapy for the treatment of chronic or acute injuries. The PRP therapy involves injecting the platelets from the patient’s own blood to rebuild a damaged tendon or cartilage. It stimulates the healing process. Overall, PRP injection therapy plays an active role to treat a wide range of injuries and chronic pain conditions.

Although blood is mainly a liquid (called plasma), it also contains small solid components (red cells, white cells, and platelets.) The platelets are best known for their importance in clotting blood. However, platelets also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are very important in the healing of injuries..

Benefits of PRP Therapy

The benefits of PRP therapy are numerous and extend beyond appealing improvement to include overall health and wellness. Some of the key benefits of PRP therapy include:

Conditions Treated Using PRP Injections

PRP Injection Procedure

PRP is plasma with many more platelets than what is typically found in blood. The concentration of platelets — and, thereby, the concentration of growth factors — can be 5 to 10 times greater (or richer) than usual. To develop a PRP preparation, blood must first be drawn from a patient. The platelets are separated from other blood cells and their concentration is increased during a process called centrifugation. Then the increased concentration of platelets is combined with the remaining blood. A small blood sample is taken from the person being treated and put into a centrifuge or other specialized device that spins at high speed. This process separates platelets from other blood components. The concentration of platelets is then injected into the area of the person’s body that needs to be treated. In PRP therapy, a concentration of platelets is injected into the damaged ligaments, tendons, joints, etc., in order to promote tissue repair and accelerate the healing process. Since platelets are rich in growth and possess healing properties, an injured individual can resume a pain-free life in an average of four to six weeks.
