Platelets are the natural response of our body to regenerate and heal itself
platelet rich plasma evaluation and treatment
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a non-surgical treatment to help regenerate cartilage, tendon, and ligaments. Patient’s own blood contains multiple growth factors enhancing regeneration of tissue. Blood is drawn from the patient. Through advanced PRP technology, the Platelet Rich Plasma and many growth factors are concentrated. This concentrated healing solution of Platelet Rich Plasma is injected to the degenerated site. Platelet Rich Plasma advances are giving hope and optimism to individuals suffering with chronic pain associated with aging process, wear and tear of life, sport injuries, degenerative joint disease, and osteoarthritis.
Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF)-AB, PDGF-BB, transforming growth factor-β1, insulin-like growth factor-I, fibroblast growth factor-basic (FGF-b), epidermal growth factor (EGF), vascular endothelial growth factor, interleukin-12 (p40/70), and normal T-cell expressed are the cells that come to site of injury to help regeneration of damaged area. Platelets are the natural response of our body to heal itself. Platelet Rich Plasma is concentrated to include growth factors and cytokines to accelerate and enhance regeneration of the tissue.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) uses your own blood as a healing solution without allergies or negative side effects to a solution. PRP Therapy is popularized by celebrity sportsmen, reduces/eliminates need for surgical procedures in acute and chronic sport injury, chronic arthritis, and wear and tear of musculoskeletal system associated with overuse and the aging process.
Platelet Rich Plasma is also used in regenerative cosmetic therapy and hair growth.
