What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment?
Platelet-Rich Plasma treatment or often known as PRP is commonly used in the treatment of joint pain and injury. The main function of PRP is to promote healing and cell regeneration as it takes advantages of our platelet’s natural healing properties. By injecting PRP into the injured area, it will help initiate body’s natural healing process and expedite recovery.
Platelet is a component of our blood and its main role is to promote blood clotting and initiate our body’s healing process. Our platelets is rich in growth factors that are important in starting cellular healing process. PRP treatment begins with blood drawing from patient’s arm. It will then be put into a centrifuge system to separate into its components of plasma, red blood, and white blood. Platelet-rich plasma is extracted and then injected into the injured body part where healing is indicated. PRP is commonly indicated for knee pain, shoulder and elbow injury.
