The adaptability of classical and hybrid acupuncture approaches in Western medical environments is the key to their clinical success and popular appeal.
Platelet Rich Plasma “PRP”
Medicine emphasizing a whole-person approach to treatment and care. It techniques relies Is blood plasma with concentrated platelets. The concentrated platelets have growth factors that are essential to initiating and fast-tracking tissue repair and regeneration. These proteins initiate connective tissue healing: bone, tendon and ligament regeneration and repair, promote development of new blood vessels, and stimulate the wound healing process. PRP is currently being used to treat damaged tendons, ligaments and bones. When PRP is injected into the damaged area it stimulates the tendon or ligament causing inflammation that triggers the healing cascade. As a result new collagen begins to develop. As this collagen matures it begins to shorten causing the tightening and strengthening of the tendons or ligaments of the damaged area.
