Defining Platelet Rich Plasma
Plasma is a golden-colored liquid that makes up over half of your blood’s content; in fact, it is what makes your blood a liquid. Other than your plasma, your blood is made up of microscopic solids such as red and white blood cells, stem cells, and other “workers” called platelets. Thus, platelet-rich plasma is your own plasma, taken from your blood, enhanced with the platelets that your body already produces.
Your Platelets’ Job
Platelets act as tiny repair cells, which stick together when your blood vessels or tissues are damaged. Because they bind together in distress, platelets are most often recognized for their ability to create blood clots when you’ve been cut, but they are also essential in the healing of internal injuries. This quality is due to the fact that platelets release signals to other cells in your body to repair the damage once they have found it, and they keep releasing those signals until the damage is healed.
By separating PRP from your blood and injecting back into your system, you are giving the injured area a boosted signal, recruiting your body’s natural healing abilities to address the issue faster and more effectively. Because of this, PRP therapy is widely used for:
- Rotator Cuff Tears
- Tennis Elbow
- Plantar Fasciitis
- ACL Injuries
- And More
