PLATELETS RICH PLASMA INFUSION; ADVANCED MEDICAL TREATMENT

  September 2nd 2019    Blog

Blood plasma is a yellowish liquid component of blood that holds the blood cells in whole blood in suspension. It is the liquid part of the blood that carries cells and proteins throughout the body. It provides a medium for blood components to circulate throughout the body. One of the blood components which are known as Platelets help your body form clots to stop bleeding and other necessary growth healing functions. Platelet activation plays a key role in the body’s natural healing process. Another name for platelets is thrombocytes.

Platelets rich plasma

PRP is plasma with many more platelets than what is typically found in blood. The concentration of platelets can be 5 to 10 times greater than usual. Platelets contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are very important in the healing of injuries. Since PRP contains more platelets than usual its means the concentration of growth factors is also high.
PRP therapy
In recent years, doctors have learned that the body has the ability to heal itself. Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a treatment method that can harness those abilities and amplify the natural growth factors your body uses to heal tissue. PRP works by injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured muscles and joints. In this way, PRP injections use each patient’s own healing system to improve musculoskeletal problems. For PRP treatment blood must first be drawn from a patient. The platelets are separated from other blood cells and their concentration is increased during a process called centrifugation. Then the increased concentration of platelets is combined with the remaining blood and then injected into the area of interest. The idea is that injecting PRP into damaged tissues will stimulate your body to grow new, healthy cells and promote healing.
Applications of PRP treatment
We can use PRP treatment for number of conditions such as Hair loss, Tendon injuries, Acute injuries, Postsurgical repair, Osteoarthritis and Muscle injuries.
If you’re suffering from hair loss then PRP injections trigger natural hair growth and maintain it by increasing blood supply to the hair follicle and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft. Tendon in juries results in pain, swelling, and impaired function of a particular body part which can be shoulder, elbow wrist, hip, knee or ankle. PRP treatment is also useful in this. Osteoarthritis is a type of joint disease that results from breakdown of joint cartilage and underlying bone. The most common symptoms are joint pain and stiffness. By PRP injections one can repair the joint cartilage. Doctors have used PRP injections to treat acute sports injuries, such as pulled hamstring muscles or knee sprains. If someone’s ligaments or muscles is affected during surgery then doctors uses PRP injections to repair them.

Advantages of PRP injections

Some of the key advantages of PRP injections are that they can reduce the need of stronger medication. And the side effects of PRP injections are very limited because the injections are created from your own blood so your body will not reject or react negatively to them.
