Are you having pain related problems in your life? Are there aches and pains in your body that you can’t seem to get rid of? If you are having discomfort in areas with fibrous tissue such as muscles, tendons, and ligaments, then the best treatment you could hope to receive would be platelet rich plasma therapy or PRP prolotherapy.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?
There are few things better for you than you. Your body is naturally good at healing itself; the only problem is that sometimes it’s just not able to. The body naturally creates these platelets which help your body heal and rejuvenate itself. If there aren’t enough platelets in your body, it will be harder for you to heal. However, if you’re perfectly healthy, you could still have a long healing process due to the natural dispersal of the platelets. PRP Therapy is a way of localizing and focusing your platelets on working optimally for you.
The mystery of the process is made simple when we break down the phrasing. Platelet rich plasma, the plasma (water) in your blood contains platelets (healing cells.) If we can enrich plasma with extra platelets, we can create a natural healing agent using your body.
We would receive the platelets and plasma from your body by using a centrifuge to extract some of your blood. Once we have the platelets separate, we combine these elements with your blood and inject it into the area that is affecting your body. Now that these platelets are near a spot that needs repairing, the plasma will now act specifically to repair the injured area.
Adding an irritant to the solution will cause your body to react more as if in pain. This would then cause the brain to tell the body that this area needs help and repairing. Since the platelets are already present, they will begin to work on repairing the injured fibrous tissue.
