What Is PRP Therapy? 

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a regenerative medicine treatment that uses a patient's own platelets to promote healing and tissue regeneration. PRP is a concentrated source of growth factors, which are proteins that help stimulate cell growth, tissue repair, and collagen production.

How Does PRP Therapy Work? 

PRP is made by drawing a small amount of a patient's blood and then centrifuging it to concentrate the platelets. The platelets are then injected into the injured area.

Benefits Of PRP Therapy

PRP therapy has a number of potential benefits, including:


  1. Reduced pain and inflammation: PRP can help to reduce pain and inflammation, which can improve function and range of motion.
  2. Accelerated healing: PRP can help to accelerate the healing process, which can reduce the time it takes to recover from an injury.
  3. Improved function: PRP can help to improve function, range of motion, and strength.
