What is PRP Therapy?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a protein that is taken from the blood. It is then centrifuged to remove red blood cells. When a therapy includes PRP in its process, it can be said that the therapy involves the use of growth factors. PRP also contains other cytokines.
PRP therapy is becoming more and more popular for a variety of medical conditions. Athletes are one of the most common recipients of PRP therapy because of its healing properties when it comes to tendinitis, arthritis, and ligament tears.
The idea behind the therapy is to speed up the body’s healing process. The body will automatically send PRP to an injured part of the body, but not as fast as it is able to get there with the therapy. PRP therapy is a natural, non-surgical way to heal the body or treatment area.
The process consists of an outpatient visit to our office. Blood is drawn from the patient and the PRP is prepared. The PRP is then used in the troubled area. The entire process can be done in the comfort of our office and typically doesn’t take much time to complete.
Who is a Candidate?
Due to the variety of uses of PRP therapy, almost anyone can benefit from the therapy in some form or another. If you have tendon pain or chronic pain, you may qualify for PRP therapy. If other forms of treatment have failed you, it may be time to try this option. Another reason to try the therapy is if medications aren’t having any effect on your pain levels.
However, some other issues can be address with PRP therapy. It can be used to stimulate hair regrowth, as well as promote sexual wellness for both men and women.
