Platelet-Rich Plasma Rehabilitation

Platelet-Rich Plasma Rehabilitation

Every drop of blood in your body has a certain plasma content contained within. The platelets making up the plasma content in your blood are known as platelet-rich plasma (PRP). It’s generally understo as platelet rich plasma therapy.

Understanding Tendons

To fully understand the merit of platelet-rich plasma rehabilitation, there needs to your bones.

The collagen content in our tendons serves as the medium through which force gets transferred to facilitate all of the movement that we’re capable of. Without tendons, we’d all be about as mobile as scarecrows.

Tendonitis or Tendinopathy

We need healthy tendons for even the slightest kinds of motion, and so naturally, taking significant damage to do.

When your tendons have been compromised to directly scrape the pavement.

An important thing to use is tendinopathy.


It is estimated that just about over 100 million annual visits to keep on climbing in the future.

Platelet rich plasma rehabilitation in standard practice

For people who are suffering through tendinopathy, the use of PRP treatment to the fact that, under normal conditions, the tendons generally receive a relatively insubstantial blood supply.

Platelet rich plasma rehabilitation is basically a way for medical care provider to the site of tendon damage, the healing process begins.

PRP therapy procedure requirements

At the very start of PRP therapy, a small blood sample must be drawn from the patient. Depending on the scale of the area affected by tendinopathy, the amount of blood drawn from the sample may vary accordingly. With a centrifuge, the blood is then essentially separated into three different parts:

  • Plasma
  • The PRP layer
  • The cellular layer in which white and red blood cells are contained

The essential goal of PRP therapy is to the area where the tendons have been compromised.

On occasion, the injection process might be reserved for the radiologist physician. Because a radiologist physician has the ability to more accurately determine the most optimal site for the injection point.

Post-therapy procedure

Following the conclusion of the on-sight injection, the patient is normally advised of a few things to the physician’s office for a follow up after about a month has passed.

While the patient is advised not to be done for strengthening the extremity in the early phases.

When the treatment reaches its final phases, the patient is given the green light to during an athletic competition.

No matter what specific kind of athletic competition the person who has undergone the PRP treatment might normally be involved in, the progression of the treatment is often held up tors of age, injury severity, any other possible injuries, normal activity level, and their general state of health.

Potential for differentiated forms of PRP treatment

In the best case scenario, the platelet rich plasma therapy model of treatment used for tendinopathy could potentially be used

No matter what the affected area is, platelet rich plasma therapy can help toration of collagen tissue.


In this instance, an athlete was originally diagnosed with minor quadriceps muscle strain and was treated for four weeks, with unsatisfactory results. When he came to our clinic, the muscle was not healing, and the patients’ muscle tissue had already begun to atrophy.

Upon examination using MSUS, we discovered that he had a full muscle thickness tear that had been overlooked by his previous provider. To mitigate damage and promote healing, surgery should have been performed immediately after the injury occurred. Because of misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment, the patient now has permanent damage that cannot be corrected.

The most important advantage of Ultrasound over MRI imaging is its ability to zero in on the symptomatic region and obtain imaging, with active participation and feedback from the patient. Using dynamic MSUS, we can see what happens when patients contract their muscles, something that cannot be done with MRI. From a diagnostic perspective, this interaction is invaluable.
