What is Platelet Rich Plasma?
- Simply stated, PRP assists in the rapid, natural, safe and effective treatment for pain relief & the healing of injuries and wounds
- Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a dense concentration of platelets derived from the patient’s own blood plasma
- Platelets play an important role in facilitating wound healing and reduction of inflammation
- Platelets contain growth factors, including platelet derived growth factor (PDGF)
- Release of growth factors results in tissue repair
- Growth factors are proteins that impart specific biochemical messages to specific target cells through specific membrane receptors
- Platelets release mediators to help modulate the inflammatory response as well as modulating the many of the cellular functions involved in wound healing
- PDGF (platelet derived growth factor) may act as a source of growth factors to help stimulate the anabolic (constructive) activity of bone cells
- PRP is an all-natural healing alternative to help patients get better, faster
