How Can PRP Therapy Help Me?

Updated: Aug 12, 2022

If you’re suffering from conditions such as but not limited to a sprained knee or tendon injuries, your first port of call for treatment might be surgery or even medication. While these options have their uses, they also come with risks and disadvantages, such as extensive recovery time or even medication dependency. An alternative that is minimally invasive and does away with medication is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). Read on to find out if this is the right therapy solution for you.

Everybody’s blood contains plasma in addition to red and white blood cells. They are important for forming blood clots. Plasma also contains growth factors, which are important for regenerative medicine in helping to regenerate and relieve your condition. By concentrating and reinserting plasma into the affected location of the body, your plasma is being transferred in great quantities to the part of the body where plasma is needed the most to start the healing process. The growth factors stimulate cell growth to allow your tissue to repair. Once repaired, your pain will fade away and you will be able to regain your normal range of movement.

PRP procedure is simple and can take place within an outpatient clinic setting: a small amount of your blood is extracted and placed into a centrifuge, which separates and concentrates the amount of plasma. This is then reinserted into the target area. Within a few weeks, the effects of PRP will start to be felt.

PRP procedures are outpatient, which means you can simply walk out of the clinic after the therapy to allow you to recover at home.
