Platelet rich plasma is basically referred to “PRP”, which is human blood that is spun down and separated producing a concentration of platelets above normal values. Platelets are the important cells of our blood having the great potential in enhancing healing of muscle, tendon, and ligaments. According to the specialists At Equinox Integrative Wellness Center; growth factors released by platelets recruit reparative cells, may augment tissue repair, and accelerate soft tissue healing. PRP treatment has been used in surgery to augment shoulder rotator cuff and Achilles tendon repair.
Why Choose Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment?
Platelets are naturally extremely rich in the connective tissue growth and healing factors. The body’s first response to tissue injury is to deliver platelets to the area. Platelets initiate repair and attract stem cells to the injury. Injecting these growth factors into damaged ligaments, tendons, and joints stimulate the natural repair procedure. In order to maximize the healing process, the platelets must be concentrated and separated from the red blood cells. The goal of PRP is to maximize the number of platelets while minimizing the number of red blood cells in a solution that is injected into the injured or pained areas. In summary, Our PRP therapy creates, stimulates, and accelerates the body’s natural healing process.
