PRP Injection Treatment: Advances In Muscle Regeneration Following Injury

Muscle injuries account for about 30% of all occupational diseases. Muscle injuries are also one of the main sporting injuries and one of the main reasons for the decline of athlete competition performance. Therefore, investigating the cellular and molecular mechanisms of skeletal muscle regeneration and muscle injury recovery is an extremely important task of modern medical science.

Furthermore, chronic hyperglycemia (increase sugar levels) is one of the most common metabolic disorders worldwide. This is associated with the development of secondary complications in muscle repair and may impair its regeneration capacity.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is one of the promising forms of regenerative treatment that has the capable of enhancing regeneration of various tissues. PRP has been found to promote stem cell activation and increases the size of the regenerating fibers within injured muscle tissue. it is also been found that platelet rich fibrin matrix improves regeneration and promotes neo-vascularisation (improved blood vessels) in muscle tissue after damage. Several studies have also shown that PRP administration reduces the regeneration time and improves histologic outcome and functional recovery of the skeletal muscle. In addition, Hamid et al., showed that PRP is able to accelerate the recovery of injured skeletal muscle in athletes. Also, PRP does have a positive effect on soft tissue repair in patients with Diabetes, and has been shown to significantly improve wound healing and accelerate functional recovery in patients with diabetic foot syndrome.

Within various types of injuries and sports injuries, we understand and appreciate the vast complexity. Most injuries get better very quickly with the correct attention. Some sports injuries, however, become chronic and a large problem. It is these chronic injuries that often require a boost, and this is where PRP treatment comes in. PRP treatment is a common treatment use to facilitate healing and repair of damage tissue. As injectable treatment goes, we have the option between pain relief being is corticosteroid and PRP. Corticosteroids, however, has many drawbacks. It is advantageous for relieving pain short-term. But long-term outcomes are generally poor. PRP on the other hand is a treatment used to improve tissue health long-term.
