What isPlatelet Rich Plasma

Eternesse Anti Aging Clinicis the only clinic in India that currently offersPRPto its patients.Platelet Rich Plasma, orPRP, isblood plasma with concentrated plateletsand othergrowth factors. The concentrated platelets found inPRPcontain huge reservoirs ofbioactive proteins, includinggrowth factorsand signaling proteins that are vital to initiate and acceleratetissue repairandregeneration. These growth factors number at least a dozen different factors. Thesebioactive proteinsinitiate connective tissue healing in tissues such asmeniscus (knee)androtator cuff tissue, boneandarticular cartilage regenerationand repair, promote development of new blood vessels, and stimulate thewound healing process.

ThePRPsignals the body to send instem cellsto repair the area of injury.PRP injectionsare sometimes done under fluoroscopic guidance (living x-ray) atEternesse Anti Aging Clinic. This is done for precise localized delivery of these healing factors into injured ligaments, muscles, and joints.

Steps Involved in Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma therapyis a treatment option for variousorthopaedic injuriesand conditions, which have traditionally required surgery or other extensive treatments.PRP injectionsare being utilized inorthopaedicswith increasing frequency and effectiveness. Injuries currently being treated with thePRP therapyare arthritis of the hip, knee, shoulder, ankle and other joints.PRPalso is utilized for soft tissue injuries such astendonitis, muscle sprainsandtears,and various types ofligament injuries. These include common tendon injuries such astennis and golfers elbow,Achilles tendonitisandknee tendonitis. PRP is also used to treat various injuries and conditions affecting (joint) injuries. These include rotator cuff and meniscus injuries.

AlthoughPRPtechnology is consideredcutting edge technology, it was initially developed 20 years ago for heart surgery to aid with the wound healing and blood loss. Its benefits are now being applied towards the facilitating of healing muscle, tendons, ligaments, articular and meniscal injuries. In fact, PRP has been widely used in Europe for many years.

To preparePRP, a small amount of blood is taken from the patients arm. The blood is then placed in acentrifuge. The centrifuge spins and separates the platelets form the rest of the blood components. The entire process takes less than 15 minutes and increases the concentration of platelets and growth factors up to 600%. Using the patients own blood, specially prepared platelets are taken and re-injected into the affected area. These platelets release special growth factors that lead to tissue healing. By using theconcentrated platelets, we increase the growth factors up to eight times which promotes temporary relief and stops inflammation.PRP injectionsactually heal the area over a period of time. This can be anywhere from one to three months.

The human body has a remarkable ability to heal itself, and by re-injecting concentrated platelets, we are facilitating thenatural healing process. ThePRPinjections are calling instem cellsto repair the area. When performing these injections, we must do whatever we can to maximize stem cell release to optimize healing.

PRP is a non-surgical technique which would suggest it is more convenient than a surgery.

Platelets are one of the primary constituents of blood along with white blood cells, red blood cells and plasma.

Platelets in the blood are responsible for the release of growth factors-power proteins which help repair and regenerate soft tissues.

Using a special procedure, we can extract the platelets out of the blood and increase their concentration by 1000 %. When injected into the knee, these highly concentrated platelets aid in the speedy healing of the knee.

We know certain factors diminish stem cell release such as smoking and alcohol intake. Obviously avoiding these pitfalls will do nothing but increase the success of the procedure. The platelets work by causing an inflammatory reaction. If we somehow diminish this inflammatory reaction than we may significantly decrease the chances of having a good result. For this reason, the use of anti-inflammatory drugs such as Advil, Aleve, Motrin, ibuprophen etc. are not recommended. This restriction should be in place for about 4-6 weeks.

The use ofomega 3-fish oiland othernatural anti-inflammatory agentsdo not seem to work the same way as theNSAIDS(non-steroidal anti-inflammatories) and are thus not restricted.

What is the number of injections that are administered?

The number of injections performed depends upon the severity and the type of condition being treated. Age also seems to have an effect on the number of injections given. Typically, younger people generally need fewer injections for the same condition than a person who is older.

Is there any pain involved?

After the injection is given, there is usually a marked increase in pain for anywhere from 5-10 days. Tylenol and possibly a mild narcotic usually handle this pain. The pain may start up again only later to go away. A good analogy is that of a roller coaster where the initial few days are like the big drop on the roller coaster than the remaining few days are like smaller dips on a roller coaster!
