you have never heard of PRP, you’re missing out on an amazing new procedure
that most people know very little about. As it turns out Platelet Rich
Plasma therapy has been around for a while yet only recently has it begun to be
a viable option for patients looking to benefit from its effectiveness. To
start, lets ask ourselves, What is PRP?
rich plasma, also called as “PRP”, is a procure where a patient’s
blood is drawn and then spun and separated using a centrifuge. The blood is
then separated into several distinct layers including red blood cells,
white blood cells and the platelet rich plasma. The separation of the PRP
produces a concentration of platelets above the normal levels that would be
found in the blood. Platelets are the cells that cause the clotting of our
blood, but they also possess tremendous potential in enhancing the rapid
healing of muscles, tendons, and ligaments in patients who may have aggravated
injuries sustained during physical activity.
are many Studies that suggest that the growth factors which are released by
platelets, may help improve and speed up the repairing of tissue, and
accelerate the healing process by adding a higher concentration of growth
factors and cytokines by creating a PRP sample. When a patient comes in with an
injury, the PRP process takes around an hour and uses their own blood to create
the PRP sample and then inject the sample into desired area that needs to be
healed. The results have been incredible as most patients need only one session
to see dramatic improvement.
any medical procedure, it will vary from person to person but typically we
see the following trends. Day one after PRP most patients report minor
discomfort at the injection site due to the induced inflammation. The
stiffness goes away usually within a day or so and may last up to a week. After
a week many patients report a decrease in pain and over the next few weeks will
report improvements in mobility as the PRP begins to repair and heal the affected
areas. The maximum effect of PRP is usually seen 4-6 weeks after the procedure
and is when a patient can tell us if they are 50, 60, 70% healed or more.
Variation will occur due to severity and complexity of injuries and
several factors such as adherence to medical advice and genetics. The once
thing that’s certain is PRP can only help and most everyone who undergoes the
procedure has been impressed with the results.
