What is PRP for Joints?
PRP, or platelet rich plasma, is a naturally occurring substance within blood that is responsible for healing and restoration in the body. This ultra-healing component contains many growth factors that aid in the regeneration of healthy tissue following an injury. For patients who are experiencing an injury or pain related to tendon irritations, tendinitis, or bursitis around the shoulder, knee, elbow, or ankle joints, PRP for joint treatments can help you reclaim comfort and functionality. These common conditions are caused by inflammation and a degeneration of collagen fibers that form the tendon. Once delivered, PRP works to stimulate the release of stem cells to further augment repair of the joint, while also encouraging the production of collage on a cellular level. WIth this minimally-invasive and natural remedy, you can reclaim healthy and stronger joints.
How Does PRP for Joints Work?
Following an initial consultation and medical evaluation, a personalized treatment plan is created. To begin the process, a small sample of the patient’s own blood is first obtained. The blood is then placed in a specialized centrifuge where it is rapidly spun in order to separate the PRP from the rest of the blood. Once the platelet rich plasma is collected, it is the re-delivered to the injured area though a series of tiny injections. Once injected, the PRP and growth factors perform their natural function for activating a healing response within the body. The release of stem cells is stimulated for the repair and regeneration of healthy tissue. Collagen production is also encouraged which works to mend damaged collagen fibers within the joint. In the days following your treatment, you can continue to notice improvements in joint pain and stability.
