When our doctor determines that PRP could help your joint discomfort, the procedure begins with a simple blood sample. We take a few teaspoons of blood from your arm with a syringe. Our professional spin the blood in a specialised, sterile centrifuge to separate the liquid (plasma) from the solids, and then separate the platelets, which are minute cell fragments.
Platelets are growth factor-filled cell fragments in the shape of a plate. When you've been cut or bruised, your body automatically pumps blood to the area of injury, which is why you observe swelling. Platelets in your blood coagulate to stop blood loss and begin the healing process by signalling your body to rebuild tissue.
By mixing these healing platelets back into a small portion of your plasma, we can super-concentrate them. The platelets in the serum are up to ten times more than in non-concentrated blood. PRP serum is a biologically compatible therapy that your body does not reject and has no adverse effects because it is generated from your own blood.
INFLAMMATION IS ALLEVIATED WITH PRP: We inject the PRP serum straight into the region of your pain and discomfort once it is ready.Growth factors cause your body to develop Fibroblasts and endothelial cells, both of which help to minimise inflammation. The growth factors also assist your body in the formation of healthy new blood vessels, which increases circulation to the area, allowing for faster repair and the removal of waste materials.
PRP HELPS TO REGENERATE DAMAGED TISSUE:
Your body already works to repair damaged tissue, but it can't keep up when your joints' cartilage is damaged or inflamed. PRP speeds up and enhances healing, allowing your body to repair huge quantities of damage that it couldn't handle by itself. PRP has been found to help repair cartilage that has been damaged by osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis in studies.
PRP HELPS TO MOVE AROUND AGAIN:
As PRP is a regenerative therapy that helps in the repair of your body, you will gain flexibility and comfort in your joints in the weeks to months after your injections. In just a few days, you may notice a difference in your mood. Over the next months, your body will continue to improve as it builds healthy new tissues.To achieve the level of relief desired, most women and men with joint pain require a series of PRP injections. To maintain your joints healthy, we also recommend yearly touch-ups.
