PRP, which stands for "platelet-rich plasma," is plasma that has had its platelets and other growth factors concentrated. PRP contains large amounts of bioactive proteins, including growth factors and signaling proteins, which are necessary for the initiation and acceleration of tissue repair and regeneration. Your body's natural reaction to an injury or damaged tissue is to call upon platelets and white blood cells already circulating in your circulation to kick off the healing process.
When healthy, platelets collect and retain a variety of growth factors, which they then release when signaled by wounded tissue. Using cutting-edge technology, we can concentrate platelets from your blood and induce the release of these growth factors when the solution is injected into wounded tissue, thereby mimicking this natural healing response.
PRP is prepared by drawing a small quantity of blood from the patient's arm. The blood is then centrifuged. By spinning the blood, the centrifuge is able to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood. The entire procedure takes less than 15 minutes and can boost platelet and growth factor concentrations by up to 600%. These platelets are extracted from the patient's blood and re-injected into the damaged region.
When PRP is injected into a damaged location, the high concentration of growth factors encourages the tendon, ligament, or muscle to initiate the healing process. This leads to the formation of new tissues. The weakened tendons, ligaments, and muscles around the injured location will tighten and strengthen as this tissue grows and shrinks.
One to three PRP injections are recommended, with the number based on the severity of the injury and duration. Two or three weeks after the first PRP treatment, a follow-up appointment is scheduled. This appointment is used to assess how well the initial therapy is working and determine whether more PRP sessions are necessary.
The Food and Drug Administration has cleared PRP for use. Data from clinical trials and scientific studies reveal that PRP injections pose almost little risk of serious adverse reactions or complications. PRP is made from the patient's own blood; therefore, there is no risk of rejection or infection. In addition, there is mounting evidence that PRP has antibacterial properties that may help prevent infection.
