In recent years, Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, has become famous treatment option as an alternative to surgery and other invasive therapies especially in treating sports injuries, soft-tissue injuries, wounds, ulcers, and some other applications in regenerative medicine.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is a procedure that re-injected patient’s own blood platelets in the concentrated form into the specific areas of spine deterioration and chronic joint.
Generally, tissue repair starts with the platelet degranulation and clot formation that stimulates the release of necessary growth factors (GFs) for wound repair. Platelet-derived Growth Factors are biologically active substances that hasten various tissue repair mechanisms such as chemotaxis, cell proliferation, extracellular matrix deposition, angiogenesis, and remodeling.
Although more than 30 platelets growth factors have already been identified, among them following five options of Platelet Growth Factor treatments in Chandigarh are found to possess wound healing and injury recovery functionality:
- Platelet-Derived Growth Factors (PDGFs): These GFs are naturally synthesized and stored by the human body that helps to stimulate the growth of blood vessels also known as angiogenesis by utilizing cells from existing blood vessels to form new tissues of blood vessels.
- Fibroblast Growth Factors (FGFs): They have multiple functions such as;
- Assisting PDGFs in the anti-angiogenesis process that contribute to wound healing
- Also, plays an important role in embryonic development.
- Act as the key factor in PRP therapy to encourage proliferation and differentiation of various cells for tissue-specific uses.
- Insulin-Like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1): It acts as both like a hormone and a growth factor. It has the similar molecular structure like insulin and plays a major role in adult anabolism and child growth.
- Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF): This GF has been discovered in various types of human tissues and stimulates cell growth, cell proliferation and differentiation that further help in wound healing and recovery.
- Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF): This GF is a protein that helps in angiogenesis and vasculogenesis. Most importantly it helps in generating new blood vessels after an injury. It also involved in the formation of muscle tissue and helps in bypassing blocked blood vessels.
At Global health Clinic, we provide patients with the specialized in Chandigarh and they usually require three to six visits per area of injury.
