PRP is just blood that entails Platelet-rich plasma containing mainly two elements i.e, the liquid portion of the blood or plasma and platelets (a kind of blood cell that plays a relevant role in healing throughout your body). Platelets are known for their clotting capabilities, however, they also have growth factors that may affect or trigger cell reproduction and can stimulate tissue regeneration and healing in the areas where surgery was performed. 

Clinicians collect a blood sample and place it into a centrifuge, which rapidly isolates the platelets from the other blood components and concentrates them inside the plasma i.e, this procedure is known as PRP. 

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Treatment

PRP therapy is known for curing a few medical conditions more rapidly than other traditional ways. Nowadays, athletes are rapidly choosing this therapy for different conditions like sprained knees or ankles, chronic tendon injuries, and tennis elbow because this therapy helps them in returning back to their sports competition more quickly. Before this treatment, your overall health will be considered because this treatment or therapy cannot be done for every kind of injury or all parts of your body. The course of therapy depends on an acute or chronic injury. 

Preparation for PRP injections 

There are some steps to prepare for PRP injections which mainly depend on how you are receiving PRP. 

  • 1. There are many different ways of injecting PRP. For example, In some cases, a topical numbing lidocaine solution can be used over your scalp before giving a PRP injection and you will have to reach earlier for the treatment in this case. 

 

  • 2. Other than this case, local anesthesia needs to be mixed with PRP for decreasing your discomfort. In some cases, during the surgery, your surgeon may apply or inject PRP. Other than this you must have to follow your surgeon’s recommendations before undergoing the surgery.

The procedure of injecting PRP

Ultrasound will be used for visualizing inside the body and to assist the doctor’s hand. This will help in ensuring that PRP is injected into the precise location. Then your doctor will apply a very small amount of ultrasound gel over the affected area and then a small ultrasound probe need to be pressed to the same area. The image will be transmitted directly to the screen showing the results.

The recovery period after PRP

How effective PRP procedure is?

As per many case studies, it has been seen that satisfaction with PRP for patients in past is not much beneficial for all people. 

For example, People with chronic illnesses and thyroid abnormalities might not experience progress over time. This is so because cosmetic surgery won’t address the root causes. Whatever happens, the hair will still fall out. In certain circumstances, alternative treatments—some of which aren’t even dermatological—might be more successful. Oral medicines may be used to treat thyroid illness instead.

Moreover, it is not yet confirmed whether using PRP for treating the knee is a safe or effective option or not.
