Platelet Rich Plasma – PRP

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

This advanced treatment is the most widely used treatment by top professional athletes like Tiger Woods and Hines Ward.  It is the one being researched in a number of universities and medical centers in various parts of the world.  Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is made from concentrated platelets derived from the patient’s own blood.  In this therapy a small sample of the patient’s blood is drawn from the forearm and then spun at high speeds in a centrifuge to separate out and concentrate the platelets.

Platelets are one of the main cell lines in our blood. The other two are white and red blood cells manufactured in bone marrow.   After injury, it is the platelets’ function to form a clot to stop bleeding.  They also release certain growth factors that activate the healing mechanism of the body.

Inside platelets are alpha granules.  Alpha granules contain cytokines, growth factors and bioactive proteins essential for tissue repair and healing. All of the chemical messengers contained within platelets appear to exert bioregulatory actions.  This affects soft tissue and cartilage repair, inflammation, bone healing, wound healing!  Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has also been shown to have antibacterial and antifungal properties. The platelets are often injected into areas where it is difficult for blood to naturally go thus promoting soft tissue and bone healing in these difficult to heal areas.

Areas that PRP can help heal and regenerate:

Rotator Cuff

Tennis Elbow

Golfer’s Elbow

Patella Tendon (aka Knee Cap Pain)

Achilles Tendon

Plantar Fascia

Arthritic Joints
