Benefits of PRP Treatment for Athletes


What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment? Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is an FDA-approved, safe, and effective medical regenerative therapy that utilizes the human body’s own blood to treat injury and repair tissue. The platelets in blood contain hundreds of proteins – referred to as “growth factors”. When injected directly into the site of injury, these growth factors work to stimulate new cell growth and healing. PRP is blood plasma with a higher concentration of platelets than a typical blood sample – about 5 to 10 times higher (richer). To create platelet-rich plasma, a small sample of blood is drawn from the patient. Using a centrifuge, the blood is separated into layers. The platelet-rich layer is carefully removed from the sample, then injected back into the patient directly into the damaged tissue, where the concentration of growth factors can get to work repairing and healing the injury from the inside out. Why is PRP Treatment so [...]

During PRP treatment, a specialist utilizes less than four tablespoons of the patient's own blood. Human blood contains three major components -- red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. These cell fragments promote restoration of tissues and other cell re-growth factors. To separate the major growth element, the patient’s blood is spun in a special FDA-approved centrifuge machine. This process separates the [...]

PRP Treatment: Helping Patients Heal Naturally


When a patient has an injury, physicians typically utilize medicine and surgical techniques to correct the issue and soothe pain. They then have to monitor the patient carefully as the injury gradually heals over time. In recent years, however, many practitioners have successfully used Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments in place of medication or surgery to treat patients with pain or injury.   The Healing Process All injuries heal in stages. In many cases, larger or more complicated wounds may take longer to heal, but even the smallest injuries go through the same phases of healing on the way to full recovery. When surgical techniques are used to correct injuries, the body has to take time to heal afterwards. This process can be lengthy, uncomfortable, and expensive.   Immediately after an injury occurs, inflammation sets in and can last for several days depending on severity. Characteristics of inflammation include bleeding, swelling, redness, and pain. Inflammation [...]
