Benefits Of And Uses For Platelet Rich Plasma Injections

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections can repair damaged soft tissue and joints affected by arthritis. PRP is excellent for ‘jumpstarting’ the healing process in a natural, holistic way. This type of treatment has increased in popularity, and many integrative medicine practitioners consider it a breakthrough therapy.

What Happens During PRP Treatment?

The PRP injection process starts by taking 60ml (2 oz.) of the patient’s blood, much like a phlebotomist would draw it for laboratory analysis. The collected sample is then placed into a centrifuge that spins it at a high velocity, separating the plasma from the other blood elements. Then, extracting the plasma forms a highly effective concentrate filled with growth factors, the core ingredient of this treatment. The PRP concentrate is then injected into the injured area of the body.

The growth factors in the PRP induce healing and rejuvenation by increasing collagen production, facilitating the body’s natural capacity to repair torn muscle tissue, damaged tendons and cartilage, and reverse arthritis symptoms. The PRP also increases the body’s natural growth hormone, crucial to revitalizing damaged cells.

PRP vs. Prescriptions Medications

Prescription medicine and other traditional methods are becoming less of the standard of care for treating soft tissue and joint ailments compared to PRP injections. Most conventional treatments are unnatural and contain substances and compounds not found organically within our own bodies.

More importantly, prescription medicines only help to manage these ailments. They do nothing but mask the pain and temporarily reduce the symptoms. This is where PRP treatment shines.

Why PRP? It’s Natural!

PRP repairs affected areas of the body and rejuvenates cells that have succumbed to aging. PRP injections are most highly sought-after and widely regarded as one of the healthiest holistic methods for rejuvenating and revitalizing oneself. This proactive approach has made PRP treatment widely popular among professional athletes, such as Tiger Woods, Joey Votto of the Cincinnati Reds, NBA player Steph Curry, and international soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo.
