Numerous studies and experiments have suggested that the human body has the natural ability to heal itself. Hence, a popular technique known as PRP Platelet-Rich Plasma is discovered. By using this technique, a regenerative liquid is injected into the patient, which is supposed to enhance and strengthen the natural healing ability of the body in humans.
Before we mention the procedure, let’s focus on plasma and platelets first.
1. What is Plasma?
Normally, in medical terms, plasma is the liquid blood. It is said that the blood is made with water and proteins. This liquid is the basic medium for red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets, thus the red color. It helps them to move all over the body during blood flow.
In short, we can say that the plasma is a liquid medium for platelets, red and white blood cells that helps them move all over the human body.
2. What are Platelets?
Platelets are counted as the blood cells. Blood cells are the reason why blood clots when a person is wounded. Blood cells are also responsible for other important healing and growth functions. They are also known as thrombocytes.
In the end, both plasma and platelets are necessary for any healing or growth process in the body.
How PRP Platelet-Rich Plasma is injected?
Now, let’s talk about PRP Platelet-Rich Plasma. How it is processed?
Well, for starters, it is injected into the patient’s body where it gets mixed with the existing plasma and move into the injured area and then the whole body. The injured area is located through ultrasound and various tests. The contraception is supposed to be the patient’s own platelets. It is taken out before the treatment and prepared to concentrate the platelet’s count. When it reaches the treatment area, they say the healing process is stimulated through this technique in that part of the body. It has proven to treat musculoskeletal problems such as muscle sprain, joints pain, a dislocated shoulder, and others. The patients with injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints have recovered after using PRP Platelet-Rich Plasma.
There are no side effects to this technique because it is patient’s own blood and you will not use any other medication such as painkillers during the process. The technique has proved to be successful in muscle function and pain reliving in many people.
