PLATELET RICH PLASMA PRP TREATMENT
A Regenerative Medical Treatment Option At Equinox Integrative Wellness Center!
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is our own blood that is spun down and separated producing a concentration of platelets above normal values. Platelets are the clotting cells of blood, having the great potential in enhancing healing of muscle, tendon, and ligaments. The Specialists at Equinox Integrative Wellness Center suggest that growth factors released by platelets recruit reparative cells, may augment tissue repair, and accelerate soft tissue healing. Platelet Rich Plasma PRP Treatment is beneficial for joint, ligament, tendon pain, injuries and arthritis wear, and tear. Patient’s own blood Growth Factors and Stem Cells can help to expedite the healing of the injured areas.

How Does Platelet Rich Plasma PRP Treatment Work?
Step 1.Collect Blood- It’s the primary step in which 30-60ml blood is drawn from the patient’s arm for the further treatment.
Step 2.The Platelets Separation- The collected blood is then put in a centrifuge which spins and separate the platelets from the rest of the blood components.
Step 3.Extract Platelet-Rich Plasma- After separating the platelets, there will be platelet-poor plasma, platelet-rich plasma, and red blood cells. Extract 3-6ml platelet-rich plasma.
Step 4.Platelet-Rich Plasma Injection Under Ultrasound Guidance For Injured Areas- This phase of therapy increases the growth factors up to eight times which enriches temporary relief and stops inflammation by using the concentrated platelets.
