Medical science is getting better day by day. Scientists and doctors have discovered that the body has the ability to heal itself. PRP is known as Platelet-Rich Plasma. This therapy can harness the abilities and amplify the natural growth factors the human body uses to heal tissue which is a kind of regenerative medicine. Human blood contains plasma which is composed largely of water and proteins. Plasma provides a medium for red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets to circulate through the body. This platelet activation plays a key role in the body’s natural healing process.
How PRP Treatment is carried out?
PRP therapy uses a concentration of a patient’s own platelets as injections. These injections are prepared by taking anywhere from one to a few tubes of your own blood and running it through a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. Activated platelets are then injected directly into a patient’s injured or diseased body tissue. This releases growth factors that stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells the human body produces.
What are the advantages of PRP?
It significantly enhances the healing process for shoulder pain caused by rotator cuff tears, tendon ruptures and for other soft-tissue injuries. It has also been demonstrated to improve function and reduce pain in people who have tendonitis or chronic tendinosis conditions such as tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow. It can reduce the need for anti-inflammatories or stronger medications. The side effects of PRP injections are very limited because, as the injections are created from your own blood. So, your body will not reject or react negatively.
