Constant and unbearable pain does have a ripple effect on your body and your healthy life. Most patients and professionals suggest using opioid medicines to treat the pain, but the solution is not a permanent option.
Since the late 1990s, when the pharmaceutical companies assured us that opioids were not addictive, more than 2 million people have become addicted to painkillers. More than 50,000 died due to the overdose of an opioid. The number of 130 each day and is constantly rising.
Though painkillers do not have an addictive nature, they are not suitable for health when taken in a high percentage. Hence, doctors have come up with more advanced technology and innovative technique like plasma replacement therapy that helps in reducing inflammation and pain.
How Your Body Fights with Pain
When injured, the body moves to the self-repair mode and immediately sends platelet cells to the given area. These platelet cells come loaded into the blood cells with essential healing properties and growth factors to repair the damaged tissues. They also work on the stem cells in the body to finish the whole healing process and reduce inflammation and muscle pain.
How Plasma Replacement Therapy Improves Your Body’s Healing Process
PRP or plasma replacement therapy is the process that helps people to overcome chronic pain by promoting the body’s natural healing process. It works similar to the body’s defence mechanism by flooding the affected area with the essential platelets and improving the process by getting the platelet to work faster and produce in large quantities.
The doctors use the PRP treatment that helps to encourage healing and reduce inflammation. These injections treat many musculoskeletal injuries that include tendons, joints and muscles, and aging signs like hair loss and wrinkles.
How The PRP Treatment Works
The blood composes various cells like red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. It also contains blood plasma, which is the liquid part of the blood. Platelets are one of the essential components of PRP treatment. It helps heal and has a unique protein type that induces growth factors.
Some blood is drawn when you have the PRP therapy, and then the components are separated. The platelets are then isolated and mixed in a small amount with plasma to make the PRP solution.
What Is the Use of PRP Treatment
Surgeons have used this PRP therapy to repair ruptured tendons for many years. Recently, this treatment is also become popular to treat soft tissues, injuries, musculoskeletal issues and even hair loss. Some of the conditions that are treated with this treatment include-
- Repetitive injuries on tendons
