PRP (platelet rich plasma)
What is prp (platelet rich plasma)
PRP or “Platelet Rich Plasma” is nothing but autologous blood with concentrations of platelets above baseline levels and contain at least seven growth factors. Normal blood contains only 6% platelets. However, in PRP, there is a concentration of 94% platelets, which translates to a powerful growth factor “cocktail” with a variety of growth factors and cytokines. This stimulates cellular proliferation and tissue regeneration to dramatically accelerate healing.
And since the platelets come from the patient’s own blood, there is absolutely no possibility of infection or other side effects. The only precaution you need to take is to stop any anti-inflammatory medications while administering PRP.

Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (PRP) is a groundbreaking non-operative treatment option that relieves pain by naturally promoting long lasting healing of musculoskeletal conditions. This rapidly emerging technique shows very promising potential for many conditions such as arthritis, tendonitis, and ligament sprains and tears.
