PRP is gaining increasing popularity in sports medicine, because it is used in the treatment of muscle, bone and joint injuries. Sports stars treated with PRP include Pittsburgh Steelers, Heinz Ward, Los Angeles Dodgers, Takashi Saito and New York Mets, Jose Rice. The credit attributed to the PRP plasma is the speedy recovery of these stars without any need for surgery. PRP is essentially blood plasma that contains a high concentration of platelets.
Platelets are biological components of the blood that help with clotting and coagulation. When the injury leads to vasculature and hemorrhage, the platelets contribute to the formation of blood clots. They also produce growth hormones and are often used for hair growth stimulation. In fact, we opt for PRP after hair transplant surgeries to ensure the transplanted hairs will get all the nutrition they need in their new environment.
