Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelets were once thought of only being responsible for clotting. But they have now been scientifically proven to be a reservoir of proteins and growth factors that play a vital role in the healing cascade. With advanced techniques, we can concentrate these platelets in a simple outpatient setting and accelerate the healing process. We believe not all PRP is created equal. Therapeutic Platelet Rich Plasma should be at least:

Not all PRP is created equal!

PRP products differ both qualitatively & quantitatively. It is well documented that not all PRP is the same.

How many platelets are needed in PRP?

When prepared correctly, prp can make a difference in a patient’s recovery.  Scientific studies provide proof of bone and soft tissue healing enhancement with a minimum PRP platelet count of 1,000,000 platelets per microliter.  This translates to a minimum of 1 billion platelets per milliliter.  Therefore, a 5mL treatment sample of PRP should contain at least 5 billion deliverable platelets.

What is in PRP?

Platelet rich plasma is a complex composition of cellular components that, when prepared properly, can be used to heal and repair a host of injuries and conditions.  Platelet rich plasma is a biologic, and the cornerstone of regenerative therapies used in modern medicine.  PRP therapy is chosen over surgery for many conditions.

How do you obtain PRP?

A small amount of peripheral blood is taken from the patient and placed into a FDA cleared sterile container.  This sterile disposable container is placed in a specialized centrifuge designed to separate the blood and plasma into ‘layers’ of the primary components of platelet rich plasma (PRP).  When processing is complete, the PRP is injected or applied under sterile conditions.

Do's & Don'ts

The Do's

    Apply heat as needed
    Elevate the area as needed
    Begin rehabilitation

The Don'ts

    Traumatize the area
    Completely restrict movement
    Overuse area

What is Clinical Platelet Rich Plasma

Clinical platelet rich plasma (C-PRP) contains a clinical dose of concentrated platelets in a treatment sample. Scientific studies provide proof of bone and soft tissue healing enhancement with a minimum PRP platelet count of 1,000,000 platelets per microliter1. This translates to a minimum of 1 billion platelets per milliliter. Therefore, a 5mL treatment sample of C-PRP should contain at least 5 billion deliverable platelets, for clinical efficacy.

What are other important cells in PRP?

There are other vital cells in PRP such as white blood cell mediators, cytokines and hormones. These include agranular cell types such as lymphocytes, monocytes, and macrophages. These cells provide a potent antimicrobial effect. They bolster the local immune response through the uptake of microbes and particles followed by its digestion and destruction. They also act as signaling molecules between cells. They bind to specific receptors on the surface of their target cells and attract regenerative cells to it. These cells are a paramount component of PRP and add to their clinical power and potency.
