PRP TREATMENT: A NEW APPROACH TO TREATING CHRONIC INJURIES AND PAIN
“No longer reserved for professional athletes and the ‘Hollywood elite’, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is fast becoming the treatment of choice for everyone”.
WHAT IS PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is concentrated from your own blood which contains recuperating factors, for example, white blood cells and bioactive proteins, called development factors and stem cell markers. These cells are imperative for tissue recovery and fix. Platelets, when considered being liable for just coagulating, have been experimentally demonstrated to be a repository of these crucial mending parts. With cutting edge methods we can focus these regenerative mending cells in a straightforward outpatient setting.
WHY PRP TREATMENT
- Start Healing and get back living
- No side effects when compared to steroid injections or surgery
- Longer lasting
- Natural and organic; from your own body
- Speeds up and promotes healing
- Minimal to no down time
- Minimally invasive
A limited quantity of fringe blood is taken from the patient and put into a FDA medicinally affirmed holder. This clean expendable compartment is put in a particular axis, for turning, to isolate the entire blood test into ‘layers’ of platelet rich plasma (PRP) and red blood cells. The PRP layer is suctioned from the red blood cells and is infused or applied, under sterile conditions, into the limited region of irregularity. As per need of patient few formulations may be added in this concentration and injected at requirement points locally as well as deeply.
NO RISK FACTORS
PRP is from your own blood, autologous, so there is little to no risk when conducted by a trained professional. Since the cells are autologous there is no risk for an allergic or immune reaction. Side effects or complications with PRP are extremely rare. Consult your physician for more information.
The total process can last up to 30 minutes. However, the majority of time will be used for processing by a trained medical specialist.
THE HEALING PROCESS
PRP signals for Stem cells and regenerative cells to repair and rebuild the damaged tissue. This accelerated healing process reduces pain, promotes increased strength, and improves overall function. The process, called the healing cascade, can be active and take place over a 4-6 week period.
LONG TERM OUTCOME
Patients can expect to see significant improvement in symptoms over the course of healing time. This procedure may eliminate the need for further invasive treatments, such as surgery or prolonged use of medications. While other treatments such as corticosteroid injections may provide temporary relief and stop inflammation, PRP injections stimulate healing of the injury over a shorter time period with less side effects. Patients usually report a gradual improvement in symptoms and return of function. Many patients require two to three treatments to obtain optimal results and may even experience a dramatic return of function and relief within 2-3 months.
RECOVERY AFTER TREATMENT
Mild pain and swelling may occur at the injection site. However, the majority of patients are able to return to usual activities with NO down time.
You must be chiefly cautious not to disturb the area during this post-treatment time frame. Initially the procedure may cause some localized tenderness and uneasiness. Patients can apply ice and rise as needed. Use the area as tolerated since restricting movement for an extended time can cause stiffening. Movement and massages promote circulation in the area and also assist with healing. After 3 to 5 days the patient will likely begin a rehabilitation program with physical therapy.
