PRP Therapy

PRP Therapy – Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment

The definition of Platelet Rich Plasma, literally, is ‘Plasma enriched with numerous of platelets. PRP, in general, has a higher concentration of platelets compared with baseline blood. Clinically valuable PRP, however, typically contains 1 million platelets or more per microliter. Normal Platelet counts in blood are average about 200,000 ㎕. The scientific proof of bone and soft tissue healing enhancement has been shown using PRP with 1,000,000/㎕ is the working definition of PRP today. Lesser concentrations cannot be relied upon to enhance wound healing. A sufficient cellular response to platelet concentrations first began when a 4- to 5-fold increase over baseline platelet numbers.

PRP Treatment Combinations

PRP therapy can be used individually as well as in combinations and has its widespread uses in various fields. Refer below for how PRP can be suitably applied by various professionals for distinct purposes:

Plastic Surgeons – Dermatologists

PRP till recently was known to provide a therapy for injuries, but it also has its advantages in treating skin problems.

Orthopedic Doctors

Orthopedic Doctors and Surgeons have more recently realized that PRP can be the best alternative treatment in place of the conventional therapies prescribed. Its non-surgical and an easily administered dosage which makes use of the patient’s own blood appeals to many Orthopedics.

Veterinarians

Since its success as an effective therapy and treatment in human clinical medical research, PRP has been used on an experimental basis on animal models, majorly to facilitate the healing and correction of bone, tendon and ligament injuries. The idea behind this is to make use of an autologous, cost effective and advanced therapy to augment tissue healing in animals. Given its many benefits, PRP is gaining ground in clinical veterinary medicine, initially with equine patients and more recently with dogs.

PRP Follicle Unit Extraction Hair Transplant study

Many professionals are using the PRP method to help their patients regrow their hair. Highly concentrated growth factors in the form of platelets have been shown to generate new hair growth, thicken thinned out hair, and make hair grow thicker and healthier. If the hair follicles or hair roots are healthy, the growth of the hair is healthy. Hair follicles survive on the nutrition they get from blood supply.

FAQ:

PRP means Platelet Rich Plasma. The Plasma liquid in the blood includes red and white blood cells and platelets. Platelets form 10% of the plasma and in the concept of PRP, the platelet ratio is flipped to 90%. It is given in the form of an injection to patients looking to treat tissue damages, skin issues etc.
A non-surgical therapy in nature, PRP is used for healing in several medicine fields including sports medicines and orthopedics. PRP is nothing but the patient’s own blood which is administered in a way such that the healing components (growth factors) present in the platelets are released, thus fuelling fast recovery.
PRP is majorly useful in cases of soft tissue injuries, including ligament sprains, muscle pulls / tears, tendon tears, tendonitis and tendinosis. It has been an effective way to treat cartilage degeneration like arthritis as well.
