What Is PRP Prolotherapy?
There are two ways prolotherapy can be administered. In dextrose prolotherapy, a solution is injected that is created from organic substances, while PRP prolotherapy uses platelets from the patient's own body. While more expensive and time-consuming, PRP has worked well in some cases in which dextrose prolotherapy proved ineffective.
PRP prolotherapy has been shown to be highly effective at stimulating tissue repair and regenerating weak muscles, joints and other body components. When injected into an injury or pain site, prolotherapy fluids often have remarkable outcomes in terms of patient recovery times and lack of side effects.
PRP treatment specifically focuses on giving patients doses of their own platelets, derived from drawn blood. Blood contains a certain number of platelets per fluid unit. By concentrating those platelets and reinjecting them into the body, not only can tissues heal remarkably quickly but the patient is not exposed to drugs or other foreign substances that can cause reactions.
PRP vs. Other Methods
While there are many methods for treating injury or pain, PRP has some distinct advantages, including:
- Less pain and shorter recovery time when compared to surgery or other invasive methods
- No addictive drugs.
- Short recovery time
- Quicker healing time
- No long-term treatment outlook
