You may have heard of Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP, which is concentrating blood platelets and injecting them to prompt healing. Platelet Lysate (PL) is its more advanced cousin.
We first began using PL in orthopedic injuries starting in early 2017.
PRP Treatment areas:
Ankles & Feet
Wrists & Hands
The 1st step of the procedure consists of acquiring a bit of blood from the patient similar to a simple blood draw. The medical team then uses a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the blood. The platelets are then injected into the painful area where they start a powerful regenerative process. They start releasing growth factors that increase blood flow to the area and generate the healing process.
The results of PRP are gradual over a period of months, as new collagen and blood vessels are produced. The effects begin to show within a few weeks and continue to improve over three to six months. After multiple treatments to the affected area, patients are no longer symptomatic and experience very little to no pain. Results vary from person to person, however, clinical observations and client responses show a positive correlation to a patient's overall well-being and living a pain-free, pill-free life.
