PLATELET RICH PLASMA THERAPY

Finding the right doctor who understands your pain and treats you with utmost care is challenging. But not anymore. With Orthocure services, you can have the best doctor!

PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP THERAPY)

Platelet-rich plasma, or “PRP,” is a non-surgical regenerative therapy, long-term treatment for illnesses such as spinal conditions, arthritis, and orthopaedic ligament/tendon sprains and rips. PRP treatment, which promotes tissue regeneration and accelerates healing by utilising the body’s natural healing mechanism, is a concentration of the patient’s own plasma administered into the injured ligaments, muscles, and joints. Because plasma is high in growth and healing components, an injured person can return to a pain-free existence in four to six weeks on average.

Current conditions and injuries treated with PRP Injections

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are becoming increasingly popular for a wide range of diseases, including sports injuries and hair loss. The therapy accelerates healing in a specific location by using a patient’s own blood cells. PRP therapy can aid in wound healing after trauma and joint damage. PRP injections are safe since they employ a patient’s own tissues and can be used alone or in conjunction with other therapies.

You can die of the cure before you die of the illness

Cures are not always efficient. Sometimes the cure that is supposed to treat you can have detrimental and adverse effects on your health instead of healing your pain. Therefore, you must get the right cure instead of just finding a cure.

PLATELET RICH PLASMA THERAPY

WHAT IS PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)?

Platelet-rich plasma is made up of two elements: plasma, or the fluid component of blood, and platelets, a form of blood cell that aids in healing all through the body. Platelets are well-known for their capability to clot, but they also carry growth factors that can induce cell multiplication and tissue rebuilding or mend in the treated region. Platelet-rich plasma is basically blood with more platelets than usual. Physicians take a blood sample from the patient and deposit it in a centrifuge, which quickly rotates the sample, filtering out the other blood elements from the platelets and concentrating them inside the plasma.

WHAT ARE PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) INJECTIONS?

Platelet-rich plasma is made from a patient’s blood sample and injected into the target location, such as an injured shoulder or a tendon. The practitioner may utilise ultrasonography to direct the injection in some circumstances. The goal is to boost the density of particular proteins or hormones known as growth factors in a specific location to speed up the recovery process. The mechanism underlying PRP injections are not well understood. According to research, the higher concentration of growth factors in platelet-rich plasma may promote or accelerate the repairing process, reducing pain and even boosting hair growth.

Patients might expect considerable improvement in their symptoms during the course of their recovery. This approach may prevent the need for more invasive therapies, such as surgery or the usage of drugs for an extended period. While conventional therapies, such as corticosteroid injections, may give temporary comfort and reduce inflammation, PRP injections encourage damage repair in a short amount of time with fewer adverse effects.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

PRP is plasma with a high platelet content. Platelets, which are most usually linked with clotting, can also help repair and strengthen injured tissues by boosting growth factors in the region.

PRP injections can cure various orthopaedic diseases, including arthritis, tendonitis, tendinosis, persistent or postsurgical joint stiffness, bursitis, ligament tears or injuries, and nerve irritation. They are also used to hasten recovery following non-orthopaedic surgery, particularly aesthetic ones.

PRP injections are often given in the physician’s office under local anaesthetic and with the use of ultrasound scans. A little blood volume is collected from the individual and centrifuged to divide it into its constituent elements. A high concentration of platelets, up to five times that of normal blood, is then delivered into the individual at the region of the injured tissue.

Each operation takes less than an hour. To receive the best outcomes, most individuals require up to three PRP injections, spaced four to six weeks apart. A fourth injection is rarely required.

The injection causes little or no pain in the majority of individuals. However, the area is anticipated to remain inflamed and uncomfortable for about 48 hours, during which pain killers and ice could be used as desired. Usually, by the fifth day following an injection, the patient has had considerable alleviation from the initial problem and has begun physiotherapy. Patients can resume work and other routine activities soon after treatment but avoid heavy lifting and intense activity for several days. The doctor will watch the patient see if and when another injection is required.

PRP injections provide considerable relief from pain and other issues for many patients and may remove the need for surgeries or long-term medicine. This therapy also hastens the recovery process, enabling patients to resume regular activities faster than conventional nonsurgical therapies. There is no chance of cross-reactivity, immunological response, or transmission of infection because the administered blood is from the patient. PRP injections, as opposed to corticosteroid injections, really promote recovery.
