What is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?
Platelets are specialized blood cells that carry proteins to promote blood clotting. This is what helps your body heal from ailments, such as inflammation or tissue damage. Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is based on the theory that blood with higher concentrations of these platelets contains stronger healing properties, allowing your body to heal faster and more efficiently.
To start Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, we first take a sample of blood plasma from the patient, placing it into a device called a centrifuge. This device is fast-spinning, so it can separate the platelets from other cells. This produces a platelet-rich serum that is then injected into the area of your body that needs treatment the most. To find the point of injection, we typically use an ultrasound to determine accurate placement. Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy can be used on its own or it can be used in conjunction with the other therapies we offer.
Benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is a minimally invasive procedure with a variety of healing benefits for your body. Typically used for athletes looking to heal muscle, tendon, and ligament injuries, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy can also stimulate hair growth as well as fight inflammation and arthritis. Additionally, it can improve symptoms of tendinitis or chronic tendinosis, osteoarthritis, and lower back pain.
At Balance of Life Clinic, we mainly use Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy to rebuild joint cartilage in certain areas of the body. Joint cartilage is the connective tissue between your joints that allows them to function properly and without pain. When the connective tissue starts to deteriorate, this can cause serious joint pain for any individual. With Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, we use your own platelets to start to heal and rebuild your connective tissue so that you can enjoy a more active and pain-free lifestyle.
