PRP Therapy for Brain-Spinal Cord Injuries

PRP Therapy for Brain-Spinal Cord Injuries

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) may be able to heal issues that affect the brain and spinal cord, such as brain inflammation and spinal disc herniation. PRP is a concentration of platelets prepared from a blood sample, and is used as a form of regenerative medicine.

PRP for the Brain

Researchers are learning different ways to use PRP therapy for brain injury. PRP may be able to reduce inflammation in the brain, lower amyloid proteins that may cause memory loss, and help structural collagen regrowth in the brain.

One of the methods of PRP therapy for brain repair is the intranasal PRP procedure, where PRP infused with insulin is administered intranasally and into the brain (it is thought that the insulin may aid in cognition and memory improvements in some patients).

PRP for the Spine

There is also evolving evidence for using PRP in spinal cord injury. One finding from a study on rats who received spinal cord injuries found that the animals who received PRP 24 hours after the injury had higher motor recovery than those who received saline.

Additionally, PRP may be useful in treating herniated spinal discs, which can occur due to incidents like car accidents or sports injuries. One study analyzed patients who experienced pain from cervical disc herniation, lumbar disc herniation, or both.
