PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. This is the plasma section of the blood that is composed mainly of your own platelets. After obtaining a sample of blood from you, it is centrifuged or spun so that the individual components are separated, leaving the remaining fluid or plasma rich in platelets.
Platelets are the cells in our blood that help in the healing process. When we injure a part of the body, the platelets automatically migrate to the site of injury, initiating a healing response by releasing numerous growth factors and other proteins which promote healing.
The Platelet Rich Plasma treatment (PRP injections) delivers a significant number of platelets into an injured site. It enhances the body's natural healing capacity, leading to a more efficient and thorough restoration of the tissue to a healthy state.
Responses to PRP injections are individual and depend on the severity of the problem and well as the general health of the individual and the health of the tissues.
Some conditions can be helped by a combination of our Regenerative Medicine treatments
