PRP is Platelet Rich Plasma
PRP is a technique used to help patients who suffer from osteoarthritis or joint pain. There are several different techniques used to deliver PRP to patients. Clinical outcomes vary due to the variables involved when dealing with patients diets, physical health, mental health and current drugs schedule. The providers expertise in drawing high concentrations of PRP are also crucial.
The Affinity PRP protocol requires patients to follow a specific diet routine to increase the quality of their bloods nutrient density just prior to having a PRP treatment. This allows for a much higher quality of PRP and better results. Since PRP comes from the patient, the patient has to be part of prepping their body for healing damaged tissue. Studies from NIH surprisingly show fruit is not recommended just prior and just after PRP treatments. It is believed to be because of the sugar content.
