Effective Ways Of Healing Your Sports Injuries: PRP
Mr Adam Whatley, of Dynamic Osteopaths is a specialist in the revolutionary treatment in regenerative medicine that is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). This is a treatment that is used to help stimulate and facilitate the healing and repair of a sports injuries for individuals who our suffering with chronic injury and are looking for improved recovery with a minimally invasive treatment.
PRP is a simple treatment, that is performed by taking a small amount of the patient's own blood, then centrifuging which separates the plasma from the blood cells. Plasma which is rich in platelets is then injected back into the injured area of the patient. These all-important platelets release growth-factors that stimulate the healing and recovery of the tissue injury, allowing faster return to sport or activities.
PRP Injection treatment is known as an ortho-biological treatment, which is used to treat pain and many sports injuries including tendinitis and joint injury using the healing properties that are derived naturally from the patients. Over the past two decades PRP research and clinical studies have grown immensely, and this natural biological treatment has been very popular among athletes. PRP treatment is now also being used in efforts to prevent invasive option of surgery.
So so why has PRP become so popular?
PRP treatment has become a very popular form of treatment for many reasons. Firstly, research in the field of chronic tendinitis has identified more about the process of tendon healing and how growth factors are involved in this healing process. Secondly, we have seen via imaging, great improvement in tendon healing. Furthermore, high amounts of evidence in dental medicine also supports the use of PRP For healing. We are now also realising the potentially harmful effects of corticosteroid injections around tendons. We also understand that these injections are not particularly useful for tissue healing and regeneration. On the other hand, PRP orthobiologic treatment can allow to simulate and facilitate healing, rather than simply removing the pain.
Upon review, research in platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment identifies improved long-term outcomes in regard to pain reduction and function in many joints (especially the knees) and forms of tendinitis. PRP is a good, proven, effective treatment to consider when other conservative treatment options have failed.
