Denver PRP Injections: Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) is a blood product derived from the patient’s own blood. Through the local introduction of increased levels of platelets and the associated bioactive molecules (proteins and growth factors), PRP has been used to biologically augment the healing and regeneration of damaged tissue. 

In theory, the increased levels of these bioactive molecules stimulate the wound healing and regenerative process of damaged tissue. This has been seen especially in degenerative tissues or biologically compromised individuals. 

While the use of PRP treatments has been increasingly utilized in the treatment of a variety of sports-related injuries, chronic injuries, and skin rejuvenation, improvements in healing and clinical outcomes have not been universally reported. 

One reason for this may be the fact that all PRP preparations have not been the same. 

Several factors can affect the character and potential efficacy of the final PRP product: variations in the volume of whole blood taken, the final volume of plasma in which the platelets are suspended, the presence or absence of white blood cells, the addition of exogenous thrombin to activate the platelets or calcium chloride to induce fibrin formation, and the spinning down process.

The premise behind treatment is that by injecting PRP into damaged tissues, it will stimulate your body to grow new, healthy cells and promote healing.

Because the tissue growth factors are more concentrated in the prepared growth injections, some research has shown that the body’s tissues may heal faster. 

The treatment does have some controversy regarding efficacy, but it has gained significant popularity and demand with world-wide appreciation of its abilities from at least an anecdotal standpoint. 

Although it has not been approved as a treatment by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, famous athletes like Tiger Woods and tennis star Rafael Nadal have been known to use these injections to help heal injuries.
