PRP Therapy: The Key to Empowering Your Body to Heal Itself
PRP--platelet-rich plasma--is a therapy that’s been around since the 80s, mostly in the sports world to treat musculoskeletal injuries. Platelet-rich plasma treatment was first used in open-heart surgery to speed up wound healing due to the operation. It’s also been used in pediatric surgery, gynecology, urology, and ophthalmology. In more recent years, PRP therapy has spread into dermatology.
At Rockwall Elite Healthcare in Rockwall, we offer PRP injections for torn tendons, arthritis in bones, sports injuries, sprains and pulled muscles. It’s proven key to empowering your body to heal itself, including for professional athletes and celebrities.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Speeds the Healing Process
High profile people, like Angelina Jolie, Tiger Woods, Alex Rodriguez, and Kim Kardashian have utilized PRP therapy for a variety of needs, from improving skin health to recovering from surgery. All athletes returned to play faster than anticipated.
PRP isn’t a medicine; it’s plasma from your own blood isolated and injected back into an injury site. This helps your body regenerate. At Rockwall Elite, we draw a blood sample, spin it in a machine designed to separate plasma from the rest of your blood matter, and inject the plasma concentration back into you.
What happens is plasma stimulates a mild immune response, getting the body to pay extra attention to the injury site. The injection places the necessary healing tools right where your body needs them, enabling it to get to work. The presence of platelets reduces inflammation and promotes cellular growth, and then growth factors activate the healing of bone and soft tissue.
Platelet-rich plasma has been found to significantly enhance the healing process, and using a PRP injection for shoulder pain caused by rotator cuff tears, for Achilles tendon ruptures and for other soft-tissue injuries is becoming more common.
PRP has also been demonstrated to improve function and reduce pain in people who have tendonitis or chronic tendinosis conditions such as tennis elbow or golfer's elbow.
