Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is becoming one of the most popular tissue rejuvenation treatments worldwide. Originally developed as a means to accelerate the healing of tendons and ligaments after injury, this therapy is now being used to address various issues and complaints. The benefits of PRP treatment are many and include rapid tissue healing without any sort of invasive procedure, safe injection of PRP without the possibility of contamination or rejection, and virtually no downtime for the client. You are warmly invited to learn more about how PRP treatment can be used at our office to treat various health conditions and speed recovery from certain injuries.
What Does PRP Treatment Involve?
For this treatment, we draw a small amount of blood from the client. We use a specially designed centrifuge to separate the platelets and plasma from the red cells. We then create a mix containing a highly concentrated amount of platelets in a small amount of plasma.
The concentrated amount of platelets in the treatment area after the mix is injected stimulates a response. The platelets act as signaling agents for the direction of nutrient distribution. This speeds up the replacement of damaged cells with healthier new growth.
What Can It Treat?
It made headlines some years ago when several prominent athletes reported satisfactory results after PRP treatment. The mix can be injected directly into damaged tendons, ligaments, and bone joint tissues such as those in the knees or elbows. The ligaments and tendons heal faster after PRP injections are performed. Some individuals even report less pain when this treatment is used to combat the symptoms of osteoarthritis.
Whether you are interested in treating a rotator cuff tear, tendonitis, back and neck injuries, or tennis elbow, PRP treatment could work for you. Unlike other treatments, the injections don’t involve the introduction of compounds that aren’t naturally present in the body. This makes PRP a good alternative for those who are wary of undergoing other treatments.
