Use your own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to reduce pain and stimulate your body's ability to heal itself.
If you have acute pain due to injury, platelet rich plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood can help stimulate your body's amazing ability to heal itself, naturally. Platelets are types of cells within the blood that contain growth and healing factors. When concentrated and injected into the damaged area these platelets release the growth factors and stimulate the body to heal itself.
The platelets in PRP play a primary part in the clotting of blood. They are also a rich resource of growth factors. Growth factors play an essential role in wound healing and the process of regeneration. But PRP also releases an abundance of other substances critical in the healing of wounds. PRP augments the creation of blood vessels, improves
healing of soft tissues, and enhances the regeneration of bone. Platelet rich plasma holds a concentration of platelets that is five to ten times the amount of platelets found in blood. Specifically, a platelet is a cell that is disk shaped.
Along with red and white blood cells, platelets circulate through the bloodstream. A platelet contains natural growth factors. Among them are proteins and cytokines. When bones or soft tissue -such as tendons or ligaments- are damaged, the growth factors in platelets stimulate healing of bone and soft tissues.
These proteins, cytokines and other growth factors in the PRP provide a number of ways to assist in the repairing of cell damage. They decrease inflammation, improve cell growth, and provide signaling to the immune system. In addition, particular types of cytokines focus on the creation of metabolic pathways that support cell recovery.
With PRP there is both no risk of the immune system rejecting the therapy or any risk of disease transmission. This is because the PRP is derived from your own blood. There is also no prolonged recovery time. In general, most people return to their jobs or usual activities right after the procedure.
Don't let pain or injury stop you from living the life you love.
