21 May 5 Benefits of PRP Therapy
Platelets are blood cells that are rich in growth and healing factors and can initiate repair and healing. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a procedure in which platelet rich plasma (PRP) is injected into damaged or degenerating tissue to stimulate natural healing and repair.
Here are the biggest 5 benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy.
- Platelet Rich Plasma contains several growth factors and cytokines that stimulate and accelerate soft tissue healing. This makes PRP therapy an ideal treatment for ligament and muscle injuries, such as pulled hamstring muscles in thigh and knee sprains.
- Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy can be used to treat chronic tendon injuries, especially tennis elbow which is a very common injury on the outside of the elbow. It can also be used for bone repair and rejuvenation.
- PRP therapy can not only be used to allow injuries to heal, but it can also be used to speed up recovery after some surgeries.
- PRP therapy is beneficial in the treatment of osteoarthritis to reduce knee pain, improve joint function and slow down cartilage damage.
- PRP therapy is a non-invasive procedure that requires only a few hours including preparation, injection and recovery. The procedure involves no risk of general anesthesia, hospital stay or prolonged recovery.
PRP therapy utilizes the patient’s own cells to stimulate the healing process. The results are lasting and support long-term healing of injury rather than a quick fix.
