Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection Therapy is a safe, non-surgical procedure. It offers relief and healing to athletes, people suffering from chronic pain/arthritis, and active individuals, who endure knee pain from overuse or a past injury. In addition to alleviating pain, this treatment decreases chronic inflammation and increases mobility.
There are many reasons people are excited about PRP, some of these include:
PRP stands for “Platelet-Rich Plasma.” Plasma is what the typical person’s blood is primarily comprised of (55%). Plasma normally has 200 million platelets per micro liter. Plasma becomes ‘platelet-rich’ when the concentration of platelets increases beyond this typical ratio.
Platelets are crucial when it comes to repairing injuries. Platelet cells contain special healing proteins called growth factors that initiate repair of injury and can dramatically enhance tissue recovery. PRP therapy mimics the body’s natural healing process by delivering a high concentration of platelets to the damaged tissue.
It is important to note that not all PRP preparation systems or treatments are the same. These differences play a critical role in determining the clinical outcome.
The combination of a high monocyte and low granulocyte/RBC counts make the Tropocells® PRP the most effective and least painful formula available.
