So What is PRP?
The New Yorker magazine calls Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment “The Blood Injections that Might Transform Orthopedics,” while the Wall Street Journal declared “Spinning Blood isn’t Just for Athletes.” That’s because PRP – which enhances the body’s ability to heal itself – has become an affordable, regenerative treatment for tissue or bone injuries. In short, it can help you heal faster, often allowing you to avoid surgery. Additionally, the treatment can be used in conjunction with surgery to reduce inflammation or bruising, increase your range of motion for rehab, and decrease scarring.
When your body is injured, it naturally sends platelets and white blood cells to initiate the healing process. The platelets contain growth factors which are released to stimulate a response in damaged tissues. By increasing the baseline concentration of platelets, PRP delivers a powerful dose of growth factors that can dramatically enhance the healing process.
How does PRP work?
Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is an autologous blood therapy that uses a patient’s own blood to stimulate a healing response in damaged tissues. The body’s normal healing processes are dependent upon blood flow. Whether an open cut or a micro tear in a tendon, the body signals for and recruits platelets to the area of injury, releasing growth factors and stem cells to initiate healing and regeneration.
Today’s technology allows us to sequester and concentrate platelets from your blood and initiate that same healing process, in an accelerated fashion, by increasing the baseline concentration of platelets by four to seven times. PRP delivers a powerful dose of growth factors to the injury site and dramatically enhances the healing process.
If surgery is required, PRP can be used to:
- Reduce inflammation and bruising
- Increase range of motion
- Reduce risk of infection
- Reduce scarring
- Decrease fine lines and wrinkles
- Increase speed of healing
- Encourage new tissue growth
