PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. It is the plasma that contains more than the typical amount of platelet in the blood. Platelets can heal wounds by coagulating blood. They have several proteins called growth factors that play a crucial role in the recovery of wounds. The platelet in PRP can be 5-10 times more concentrated than typical blood, meaning there is a greater concentration of growth factor that accelerates cell growth.
How is PRP Applied?
PRP is injected into a wound or injury site to induce healing. Injecting PRP to a damaged tissue will allow it to produce newer and healthier cells and heal faster.
Who Can Have PRP?
Patients with nerve and muscle pain, especially those whose bodies stop responding to their normal medications or who suddenly become immune to their treatments, can benefit from PRP treatments.
Sometimes the human body refuses to resolve an injury because it stops regarding that injury as something needs to be repaired. This is very common in chronic diseases such as tendonosis or chronic back pain.
PRP treatment may be the best solution for these injuries as it activates growth factors and natural "irritants" that induce healing. It deliberately causes a slight inflammation at the injury site, which informs the body about the need for recovery.
