PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
PRP delivers concentrated platelets and growth factors to the site of injury, accelerating the healing process and regenerating tissue. Research has shown that orthopedic injuries respond very positively to PRP therapy. Not only is there an acceleration of bone and wound healing, but there is evidence of increased formation of blood vessels, connective tissue and skin.
Preparation Of PRP
Benefits Of PRP Therapy
PRP therapy has advantages over many other treatment methods. The preparation of platelet-rich plasma is a rapid process, resulting in plasma that is available for treatment usage within the hour. It is easily administered during the same session during which blood has been withdrawn and continues to assist healing after application.
In addition, PRP is compatible with other treatment options, such as physical therapy, and does not produce the scarring surgery does. PRP therapy is always autologous, that is, prepared with the patient’s own blood, and therefore does not carry the risks of transfusion.
