Top 5 Benefits of PRP Therapy

None of us wants to be in pain. So, when that stiff knee starts acting up or your arthritis stiffens in cold weather, you need to do something about it.

Arthritis, chronic pain, and a range of other injuries can put a damper on your day-to-day life. It can be frustrating when pain hampers your everyday activities. It can even take a toll on your physical and mental wellbeing.

Fortunately, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy might help.

What Exactly is PRP Therapy?

Platelet-rich plasma is a concentrate of proteins derived from your blood and separated to remove red blood cells.

The growth factors in PRP can heal damaged tissues since it naturally triggers localized inflammation and collagen production while also using a host of other regenerative processes.

Taken from your own body, PRP is injected into another site where the affected area is.

PRP therapy is designed to deliver growth factors to the site of injury to promote healing. The platelet enriched plasma contains up to 10 times the normal concentration of platelets.

What Conditions Can PRP Therapy Treat?

PRP therapy may be used to treat a range of musculoskeletal injuries, including:

PRP therapy may also help improve facial appearance.

How is PRP Therapy Performed?

What Happens After PRP Injections?

There is typically a two-day recovery period after the injections. During your recovery, you may experience some discomfort and swelling, which resolves on its own. Depending on the area of your body and the extent of your injury or disease, you may feel the results of your PRP therapy after 2 – 8 weeks.

A series of two to three PRP injections may be given depending on your condition and goals.

The healing process along with the relief of your symptoms may continue for up to six months after your final treatment.

5 Benefits of PRP Therapy

  1. Naturally-Induced Rejuvenation

PRP therapy does not use strong acids, pharmaceutical chemicals or plumping agents. Concentrated amounts of your blood platelets are introduced. This is what your body responds to which makes for a natural but accelerated rejuvenation process.

  1. Great for Unresponsive Injuries

PRP therapy alleviates chronic pain long-term. It also works to reduce, relieve or ease muscle stiffness that can affect movement, exercise, and sleep.

  1. Speedy Recovery

There is little to no recovery time with PRP treatment. Any slight redness or swelling at the site of the injection will dissipate and won’t stop you carrying on with your daily life.

  1. Suitable for All Skin Types

If you are looking for a safe, effective treatment for skin rejuvenation, certain skin types often can’t undergo certain treatments. PRP therapy is suitable for all skin types.

  1. Reduced Scarring

There is minimal scarring with PRP therapy, making it perfect for those of you who want to minimize the appearance of visible scars.

In some cases, PRP therapy may help you to an extent where you may be able to postpone or even avoid joint replacement surgery or other invasive procedures.
