What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma is made up of two components: platelets, a type of blood cell that is crucial to overall body repair, and plasma, the liquid portion of blood. In addition to their well-known clotting properties, platelets also contain growth factors that can promote cell proliferation, encourage tissue regeneration, or hasten healing in the affected area. Platelet-rich plasma is the blood that has more platelets than usual.
Medical specialists draw a blood sample from the patient and place it into a centrifuge, which spins the sample, isolating the platelets from the other blood components and concentrating them inside the plasma. This process produces platelet-rich plasma.
What Is a Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection?
The platelet-rich plasma from the patient's blood is injected into the injured area, such as a tendon or knee. The chiropractor may sometimes utilize ultrasonography to direct the injection. The therapy is intended to raise the concentration of certain hormones (growth factors) or bio proteins to promote and accelerate natural healing.
PRP's working mechanisms are not fully understood. However, research has proven that the higher concentration of growth factors in platelet-rich plasma may activate or accelerate the healing process, reduce the amount of time that injuries take to heal, the intensity of the pain, and even promote hair development.
