Platelet Rich Plasma Injection (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a blood plasma that holds a high concentration of platelets which is much greater than that of normal blood. The platelets are generally concentrated at 4-6 times above the normal platelet baseline.

In general, plasma represents a little more than half of the total circulating blood volume. It is a clear, straw coloured liquid which is composed of over 90% water. Plasma also contains minerals, hormones, immunoglobulins, minerals, proteins, and clotting factors including platelets.

Research studies and clinical practice have indicated that platelet rich plasma therapy is very advantageous. Both ultra-sound and MRI images have exhibited definitive tissue repair after treatment, validating the healing process. Surgery can also be lessened or prevented when treatment of injured tissues has been made before the damage progresses which could possible leave the condition become irreversible.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is being heralded as a solution for a lot of health concerns. It has also been regarded as a cure for brain cancer as well as a magical health restorative for many concerns. You might even have heard of PRP for hair loss
