Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy


Platelet-Rich Plasma

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is the liquid portion of the blood that contains red, white, and platelet cells. Platelets make up around 10% of the blood’s biological components in the human body. Your blood platelet concentration is boosted to 90% in PRP, dramatically enhancing the healing potential of your blood. The concentration of healing growth factors in Platelet Rich Plasma can be up to ten times higher than in regular blood, which aids in the healing process. PRP is a safe therapy that uses your own blood and has a low risk of side effects. Platelet Rich Plasma, unlike cortisone shots, builds rather than weakens your body’s structures.

Platelets include growth factors, which are proteins that aid in the healing of wounds. Because most injuries occur in areas with insufficient blood flow, the injuries are deprived of the platelets and growth factors required to rebuild injured tissue. According to studies, PRP treatment can cure this problem by providing platelets to the wounded area of the body, which aid in healing. Platelet Rich Plasma combined with regenerative medicine products has been shown to speed up the healing process by more than 80%.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a natural way to treat a chronic ailment by utilizing your body’s inherent healing potential. An injury can only be healed for a particular amount of time, known as the “inflammation stage.” The body quits trying to repair an injury after three to six months, and the damage becomes chronic. PRP has the ability to re-start the healing process. PRP therapy, which has been utilized in sports medicine since the mid-1990s, stimulates and enhances soft tissue repair, such as that caused by:
