PRP is a revolutionary biologic therapy that has been used to enhance the body's ability to heal itself naturally from various musculoskeletal conditions. Plasma contains essential growth factors that bridge the gap in damaged tissue and results in the healing process of tissue repair in the human body. These growth factors are derived from a small amount of your own blood as the bodys response to soft tissue injury is to deliver platelet cells to the injured site. Growth and healing factors initiate repair and attract critical assistance of stem cells. The healing process intensifies the bodys efforts by delivering high concentration of platelets to the injured site promoting healing.
Small amounts of blood is drawn and placed in a centrifuge which spins the blood at high speeds separating the platelets from other components. Platelets are refind and concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) is injected into and around the injured site, strengthening the body's natural healing process. By using your own blood we eliminate the risk or allergies or transmission of infections. Most people return to their regular activities shortly after.
Precise number of treatment sessions varies with each individual patient's type of injury.
