Allied Health Performance & Medical is a fully accredited Alocuro Platelet Rich Plasma therapy providers. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is one area of regenerative medicine that has been proven to be beneficial in halting degenerative change and improve tissue regeneration in certain conditions. The treatment accelerates the body’s natural healing process by using the patient’s own cells to promote healing of bone, tendon, cartilage, ligaments, muscle and skin tissue. It works by delivering powerful growth factors that stimulate and improve blood supply to the injured area and the nutrients needed for cells to regenerate the damaged tissue. Scientists anticipate incredible benefits from ongoing PRP and stem cell research and believe that it will provide significant improvements for patients’ ability to heal themselves in the future. PRP can be used to treat: Musculoskeletal injuries PRP is often injected into areas within the body that have a poor blood supply to promote soft tissue and bone healing in these difficult to heal areas such as the plantar fascia (foot), achilles tendon (ankle), the rotator cuff (shoulder), tennis elbow and the patella tendon (knee). Also most joint surfaces and cartilage have a very poor blood supply so once injured do not repair ( especially in adults) Wounds PRP functions as a tissue sealant and drug delivery system, with the platelets initiating wound repair by releasing locally acting growth factors. These growth factors attract un-differentiated cells that aid tissue healing and regeneration, promote new capillary growth, and accelerate skin regrowth in chronic wounds. PRP therapy can positively impact wound healing and associated factors such as pain and infection in both chronic and acute cutaneous wounds. Wounds treated •Arterial; •Venous; •Pressure; and •Diabetic Aesthetics (skin rejuvenation and hair restoration) In dermatology and cosmetic medicine, PRP has been used to treat acne, scarring, skin rejuvenation and tightening around the eyes (for sun damaged and ageing skin and fine lines) and in the following areas: cheeks and midface, jawline and submalar regions, back of hands, decolletage, and others (eg, knees, elbows, and upper arms, as well as for stretch marks. In hair restoration, PRP is injected into the scalp. The application of PRP causes miniaturized hair follicles to become healthier and larger, producing more robust hair growth. PRP activates follicular progenitor cells (adult stem cells) and promotes angiogenesis and localised cell growth. Effective for both male and female pattern hair loss.
