Burnaby Platelet-Rich Plasma PRP ACP Autologous Conditioned Plasma

Healing after an injury involves a well-orchestrated and complex series of events where proteins in the blood act as messengers to regulate the entire process. However, when an injury occurs, the platelets become activated and start to gather at the injury site to release beneficial proteins called growth factors. Often referred to as platelet rich plasma, this treatment has been used to assist in the treatment and recovery of injuries.

Burnaby prolotherapy (prolo, PRP, platelet rich plasma) Dr Victor Chan

The concentrated dextrose causes a localized inflammation which attracts blood supply, tissue growth factors, and other nutrients to the area. Prolotherapy involves the use of a dextrose solution, which is injected into the injured ligament or tendon where it joins the bone. When your ligaments and tendons are injured, their healing is often slow and incomplete because their blood supply is limited.

The body can also have Type III delayed hypersensitivity reactions where IgG antibodies are produced for several hours or days after exposure to a food allergen. Anyone with leaky gut should be tested for food allergies and anyone with significant food allergies may need to be treated for leaky gut. Unfortunately, even though delayed hypersensitivity is more common, conventional allergy testing does not capture this.
